Figuring out Food

Milo is NOT a fan of eating... I wish that I had the same problem!

We have tried everything to get him to open his mouth for food, and I mean everything.
Technique #1- I sing and dance while Chris tries to shove it in.

Technique #2- We trick him with yummy foods like Cheetos and Fatboys, and then try to swap it out for peas or normal baby food.

Technique #3- Letting him put the food in his mouth and not looking at him. (may seem weird, but it worked for a brief period).

Technique #4- Dragging the highchair outside.

As soon as we think that we've found something that works, Milo switches it up on us and refuses to eat. Oh, also he does this thing where if he is unhappy about eating, he will hold his breath until he gags and throws up.

What a little stinker.

These last two days that I have found success in a couple of ways:

-Letting him crush his food and get INCREDIBLY messy.

-Letting him watch TV while eating. Judge Judy and Jesus channel are his favorites.

The one thing that Milo does love about eating.... Getting cleaned up after.

The Birthday Bash

Chris turned 26! What an old fart:) He still had a monster truck birthday cake.
And celebrated with eating contests....

My dad dominated (note his gold medal).
The girls threw down with the classic doughnut on a string.

And Hotts took 2nd place in the watermelon eating!

Happy birthday my old turkey!
