Feeding Lucas



Looking at my pictures today, I realized that Lucas likes to play with his food. One case in point -the picture above(yes, that is corn on his ear)- I believe he was trying to hide his corn to make us think he had eaten all his veggies and wanted to move on to the "good" food. Sometimes food goes on his head, other times he'll hide food on his chair (below the table) again in an attempt to get to the goodies. Food on his chair is always a surprise because I don't usually notice until after they are done eating, all washed up, and I am lifting him out. Then attached to his butt or leg is about 20 pieces of food. I brush it off his pants, only to have most of it end up on the floor. Not to worry though, more food for the dogs. One of our favorite things to see when we are rushing around, making sure everyone has food on the tray and juice in their cups is Luke putting his food up on his head. Or better yet, rubbing pineapples in his hair! Seriously, this kid is so lucky he's cute enough that we still (usually) think this is endearing. All three boys love pasta. Any shape of form, they just can't get enough of it. I like to buy them the Fiori tri colored ones. Luke eats them by poking his finger through one of the holes and lifting it into his mouth. I had to get a picture of this to remind me later how his fingers are so small right now, they actually fit perfectly into the little holes in the noodle. I love that this is just another thing that helps make them unique of one another.

He's definitely a cutie!

I too get the "surprise" food on their legs or butt when they get out of their booster chair! It's a little snack for my guys sometimes!

They are so cute. I have to forewarn you ... the food playing is going to ESCALATE in intensity and your dog is probably going to get very fat. Every night at our dinner table, it is like being caught in the cross-fire of a food fight. Sometimes I have corn on MY ear!!! I'm not sure when they outgrow this stage ... our trio at 23 months don't appear to be anywhere close.

Just have to echo Jen's experience...at 28 months I am still cleaning up little science projects. This morning it was blueberries mashed up in their cups of orange juice...
