We had struggled to transition Josiah from baby food to 'people' food. It's not all his fault, it's partially ours. Face it, baby food is easier (at a certain level). Baby food is more costly, but less time consuming. Josiah had been sick for the two weeks leading up to Disney. He favored baby food while he was sick. Admittedly so, we preferred it too. Then we went to Disney, and his sickness was still questionable. He seemed to have developed a secondary lactose intolerance (I must admit, I'm not sure what that means, how long it lasts, or when to know it has ended). As a result, we stopped feeding him yogurt (the one food he ate consistently). While in Disney, he ate (almost exclusively) baby food. It was safe & kept him well.
We arrived home and, honestly, just decided to stop feeding him baby food. Well, low and behold - it worked. Suddenly, Josiah was eating people food (and was happy about it). In the three weeks we've been home, Josiah has eaten pot roast, beef stew, chicken, onion rings, hamburger helper, mac & cheese, and the list goes on. He hasn't touched baby food in weeks! We are ecstatic!!! Just last night, I noticed the secondary gain....Josiah's orange tint has finally disappeared!!! I thought it would never be so!!!
Here's Josiah, after eating a piece of birthday cake last week. Look at the smile on that face!!!
