Any suggestions?

We've got a picky eater on our hands. He has gotten tired of baby food, which is fine, but he doesn't want much when it comes to big boy food. He loves things that dissolve easily (cookies, Gerber Puffs, Nutri-Grain bars, and muffins), but these things have practically no nutritional value. We've tried giving him things we're eating without much luck. He looks interested, but turns away when we attempt to give him anything. Any ideas? I don't mind trying anything. I really want him to get more into fruits and veggies instead of all those carbs.

No more b-o-t-t-l-e

Ian is offically off of his bottle as of last week. We were very worried how he would do, but it didn't phase him when I handed him a sippy cup instead of a bottle. He has been using a sippy cup off and on since he was about 5 months old, so he's had plenty of time to get used to it. But now he's a full-time sippy cup user :) We were happy to ditch the bottles without a big fuss.

15 months

Ian went for his well-visit today. He weighed in at 20.6 pounds, putting him in the 5th percentile, and was 30 3/4 inches long, putting him in the 45th percentile. Everything else looked great too! Yay for a healthy boy!

Ian's been running around the house lately, repeating everything we say and eveything we do. Although the words he says don't sound exactly like what we say, he does have several down: bye-bye, hey, uh-oh, mama, dada, and Elmo. Today he was knocking on the doctor's office door to get out...knocking, with his little fingers in a fist like a grown-up knocks on a door. I thought it was so cute.
