we have a winner! yobaby drinkable yogurt did the trick. wahoo! tman will drink milk if it's mixed with drinkable yogurt (right now we're at half milk/half yogurt...i'm going to give it a little time before i start cutting back on the amount of yogurt). but for now, i'm celebrating the fact that he's at least drinking some milk (and ignoring that it probably has something to do with the fact that sugar is the second ingredient listed in the yogurt). now the trick is getting him to sit still long enough to drink we do lots of "driving" loops around the house so that he can sit still and drink.

and thanks to lance, we've finally gotten the boy child to eat meat. well, i guess that's true if you consider hot dogs meat. i personally don't do hot dogs-they're just gross to me. but lance loves them and really wanted to see if tanner was a fan. i made him at least buy turkey dogs. and the result...he ate them...and really seems to like them. of course! ugh! but at this point, i'm willing to get over the smell and feeling disgusted at meal time (and diaper time) to get him to eat something other than fruit and veggies.

here's to expanding tanner's list of "acceptable" foods!

all the good like mac n cheese, mashed potatoes, pasta and chick fil a still all get spit right out! and no luck on bread yet either.

the kiddo just LOVES his fruits and veggies...we eat LOTS and LOTS of lima beans (canned, not frozen), peas, green beans, carrots, black eyed peas, black beans, fruit (pears, peaches, mandarin oranges,  applesauce, avacado, bananas (sometimes...but not lately), squash and sweet potatoes (sometimes), corn, and cheerios. and LOTS of cheese and yogurt! tanner loves cheese...he turns into a little chipmunk with it and crams 4 to 5 to 6 pieces in his mouth at a time.

and his newest dinner-time trick is trying to feed himself. he definitely understands the concept and he loves just makes meal time a little slower.
