little eater who doesn't eat a little

Recently, Egan has taken even more of a liking to food. I'm constantly trying to keep fresh ideas for food in front of him, and he seems to appreciate that. One of the recent things he's been eating is beans. A 15 bean soup to be more exact. If you know me well, you know that I despise beans of all kinds. YUCK! This kid loves his beans though, so I'll keep giving them to him.

I've learned a few lessons with the beans though. Egan is not allowed to wear clothes while eating them because he gets so messy.

Egan says "mmmmmmmmm, so good."

Maggie agrees. She doesn't move from under the highchair anytime Egan is in it.

So, that was the first time Egan ate his bean soup. Since then, I've changed my method.

No clothes allowed.
Still messy, but Egan is ok with that!

(The orange things are sweet potatoes.)
Egan's other favorite foods these days?
-Grapes (If he sees them across the room, he refuses to eat anything else. HE LOVES GRAPES. I can't cut them quick enough.)
-Peas (We have a bag of frozen peas and carrots. He devours the peas, and he will happily eat the carrots, but WILL NOT pick them up for himself.)
-Ground beef
-Sweet potatoes
-Apple sauce with yogurt
-Grilled Cheese
-Mixed veggies (corn, green beans, peas, carrots. Yes, he actually ate the green beans... shock!)
-Squash (I seasoned and grilled it on the grill. HUGE HIT!)

That is all I can think of right now. He will eat pretty much anything these days. Last night we even shared our macaroni and cheese. yum.
