i keep trying


Last night I sat and watched Sophie during her snack time throw blueberries on the floor and smash them on her highchair. She didn't want them, or anything I attempted to give her.

She hasn't been eating this week. Or, the week before.

She has done a complete 360.
She went from screaming because she wasn't getting food fast enough to her liking to having no interest in food whatsoever.

Some say it is her "trauma" from the first 12 months of her life coming out.
Some say it is because she has realized that she won't go hungry anymore;
that she's realized she'll always have food available now.

I keep trying everyday for her to eat.
Some days she will take about 4 bites from the spoon, and then she's done.
Some days she will not take any bites from the spoon.

I blend her breakfast, lunch, and dinner into a smoothie.
Spaghetti, protein powder,  and milk smoothie anyone?
Would you like a spinach, safflower oil (to boost her calories), and oatmeal smoothie?
I think "Yuck, how is she going to drink this concoction down?"
But she does; she drinks it every single time.

She uses the OXO Tot Training Cup in pink, of course!

One day she'll eat with a spoon again, but until that time I'll continue filling her up with the only way I know how.
