1st Time Eating Ketchup April 2014 SNAG-0016Ketchup!

Rhema is getting so brave and curious about new foods.  She was fascinated with the “red” that I was putting on my potatoes (fries)!  So, I put a few on her plate and after holding it, painting with it and licking it with her little tongue, she finally ate it!  Then she wanted more!  WOW!  I was so proud of her trying new things!!!!  Later that week she wanted to taste the “white” salad dressing I was dipping my veggies into and we let her taste it too!  She took less time to taste this and even though she did not seem as thrilled with it as she was with the ketchup, at least she did not spit it out!  Most days, if she eats something she does not like, she will just begin to spit and spit until she gets it all out of her mouth.  It makes for lovely dinner ambiance to hear her spit and spit!  LOL!  But, hey, she’s come a long way from the days of not eating anything that had textures so we will endure the spitting for this season.  Right!?  LOL!
