Time is just flying by lately. I strongly suspect that's because Baby's second birthday is rapidly approaching. I can't believe he'll be two in just a few short weeks. At the same time, I'm excited to see him growing up and learning new things. It makes me so proud when he figures out how to put words together or how to do something that used to challenge him. All the same, I long for the days when I could just hold him and rock him and he wouldn't say, "Mommy, no!"
Speaking of no, food has become a serious challenge these days. For those of you wondering how often Baby eats these wonderful varied things I put in front of him, the answer is not very often, especially these days. He suddenly has a thing against straight spaghetti - I think maybe it's a little challenging for him to eat it, so he'd rather not. He'd rather eat Spaghetti-O's or fusilli or another shaped pasta. He also will randomly decide to despise his favorite foods. I try my best to keep my cool about it, because I know my getting frustrated won't help the situation, but it's ridiculously hard sometimes. And I'm sure it's only going to get harder as he gets more opinionated.
I'm really excited to try this cider braised pork chop recipe this weekend - I've been wanting to try it for a while and I keep forgetting about it. I love apple flavors with pork chops, so I suspect that will be a pretty yummy dinner. And Baby will probably refuse to it, of course...so the saga continues.
