leafy greens...

I haven't found anything that Griffin won't eat. I'm so surprised that he isn't HUGE because he eats like a horse....grass and all. A couple of weeks ago, I was making my spinach salad for lunch and dropped a few leaves on the kitchen floor. Before I realized the mess, Griffin managed to make his way over to the leafy greens and stuff them all in his mouth. He was quite proud of himself. I wasn't shocked he'd eaten off the floor, just that he seemed to really enjoy the spinach. Lately he's been into our house plants. He likes to dig around in the dirt and enjoy a mud pie. Gross, I know. We're not encouraging it. But he's so obsessed with the leaves of the plants--they're like a delicacy for him. When we're not looking, he goes and rips huge leaves off the plants and stuffs handfuls in his mouth. It's like chocolate cake to him!

It is so ironic...while I'm pleading with Parker to try a chicken nugget, Griffin is happy stuffing foliage into his mouth. It's like he has pica or something. Oh well, at least he likes food!

That is my kind of man! =) I absolutely LOVE salads; I don't eat them because they're healthy, I eat them because they taste good. You're raising him well, Miss Amy!

Less than 24 hours to go...

Amy,

That is so funny you mention Pica...I was just saying the other day that our 9 month old Addie must have Pica. She will also put anything in her mouth. It is actually very scary for me. Not only does she put anything in her mouth, but she will also swallow anything.

I had a little one like that too and I had to remove one of our plants because it was poisonous. Yikes.
