It is always a struggle to get Ian to eat...anything. He loves his milk and would live solely off of it if we let him.

Tonight I made breakfast for dinner, which is one of my personal favorites. Ian was given a chocolate chip pancake, blueberries, and yogurt to eat topped off with a fruit smoothie to drink. He licked the pancake, ate most of the yogurt, and drank about half of the smoothie. I know it doesn't seem like much, but this is more than usual.

Because of the food issues, our picky little eater has an appointment at Scottish Rite with a occupational therapist Thursday. We are hoping to learn some new techniques to get him to eat anything besides cookies and candy, which just happened to be some of his newest words. Go figure.

I know how you feel! For the longest time all Holly could/would eat were pretzel sticks and Herbed Chicken baby food. I was sick of buying it. You are doing the right thing by getting help! Holly just had her first Speech Therapy visit and already can say 3 new words!!!! Amazing what the OT professionals can get her to do. I know they will help Ian too! Best Wishes, Peggy Fisher

I hope that Ian will make major progress in the food area. Sometimes it just clicks one day and they go food crazy. Hopefully that will be the case for Ian soon.

I know what it is like to have a picky eater. Ramsey just doesn't eat a lot at all. I had babies can't wait help me with this for about 6 months and in the end they just decided he is smart, stubborn, and not as hungry as some kids. It is still hard as a mommy but I am trying to be calm about it all. Good luck to you guys and please share any info the OT gives you with us as it might help Ramsey too.
