The feeding front

We had some breakthroughs on feeding in the last few days. Eggs are back on the menu!! This is good news since the new chicks are starting to lay.
Last night, I made tortellini soup. Jackson was all over it, or rather, the soup was all over Jack. But he ate it. He ate the components I expected him to eat (turkey bits and tortellini), and he also ate the bits I expected him to throw. He ate carrots, zucchini, tomato chunks, and even the onion bits. I'm definitely keeping this in my back pocket.

We're also binging on grapes and cherries. I guess that's what happens when a hungry mother goes shopping with a hungry toddler. I picked up a package of Champagne grapes. If you haven't had these, I highly recommend them. They are tiny and I imagine intimidated by the giant grapes Jackson chose. However, the tiny size packs a highly concentrated bubble of sweet sugar.

Here's hoping my links to tortellini soup work. If not, you know what to do.



  1. That tortellini soup of yours is pretty much a staple around here, even in the summer. We LOVE it!
    I'll have to try those champagne grapes. They sound really good and really fun to eat!

  2. Don't you love how food and dinner becomes either a total struggle or a minor victory when you are feeding a toddler?! I will have to try the soup-Miles will like something one day and then want nothing to do with it the next.
