aidan loves to eat

i couldn't help but share with you what aidan ate for thanksgiving, on the saturday after thanksgiving we went to my mother-in-law's apartment to share the holiday with her and robby's sister. well while we were eating our ham and potatoes, etc., this is what aidan was eating...in case you can't read what the jar says it's vegetable turkey dinner (i thought it appropriate to eat turkey). he's never eaten so much in one sitting. 6 ounces, holy moley. i guess the kid knows what this holiday is really about: eating as much as you can stomach.
...
while i was getting ready to go to my MIL's aidan was playing in the living room, when i came out, this is what i found...
aidan was crawling and playing with his rattle in his mouth. the whole thing, like it was a giant pacifier. this kid is crazy.
i know this picture is blurry, but look at how big that circle is ... and he had the whole thing in his mouth!!
he wasn't very happy when i took the rattle away, and he growled at me!
...
he used to be good about eating a variety of things, fruits, veggies you name it. recently he's been spitting just about everything in my face, no matter what. tonight i decided he needed some protein so i gave him a jar of vegetable beef (6 ounces again, and he's never had it before). he ate the whole thing soooooo fast. this boy likes his meat!
...
on a related note, i've been working on sewing a blessing outfit for my friend's little boy, and i thought i had put all of my sewing supplies out of reach for aidan, apparently not. yesterday i heard him playing around over there so i went to investigate and he had about 3 or 4 straight pins in each hand. after further investigation i saw that he had something in his mouth ... 5 straight pins!!! apparently he wasn't hurt because he wasn't crying or anything, but sheesh! that boy will put just about anything in his mouth!
aidan thinks it's cool to wear sunglasses inside, especially after gorging on 6 ounces of vegetable turkey.

What a funny boy. I can't beleive that babies like those meat baby food dinners they are so gross. The vegatables and fruit aren't bad but the meat stuff is just gross. It is a good thing they like them :)
