ok, little miracles is devoted to velzy's eating yesterday. i went to costco- spent way too much money as usual- but it was worth it. velzy has been a self proclaimed vegetarian for a long time, i can't even remember how long. she will eat hot dogs but i don't count that as real meat. anyways, back to costco, we walked by the sample lady with the dinosaur chicken nuggets and the lady trys to give me one, but i say "no thanks this strange little child does not eat meat." she insists that i give her one and velzy takes it...smells it (she smells everything before it goes in her mouth-really funny), and takes a big bite. i count to three in my head just waiting for her to spit it out and shake her head with her tongue hanging out like she does when she dislikes a food that should not have made it pass the smell test. instead she swallows and takes another bite!?! amazing. we even walked back by the same sample to make sure it wasn't a fluke and she wanted more- she ate two more! amazing. so of course the lady handed me a bag of them telling me that we needed them. with a look of shock on my face i took the bag and walked away. just another testament as to why costco is the greatest wholesale establishment in the world.
it does get better though, at home i made a super yummy pasta (that i will post to the recipe blog when i am done here) and velzy totally ate the chicken from that too...little miracles i am tellin ya.
anyways, i found a rad little stroller for velzy- who loves to push things around these days. so we went for a little walk when we got home. she would abandon ship and venture off chasing birds then come back and give her doll a ride, i was just glad to have found something that would make her happy, and the fact that it cost six bucks and has the little mermaid on it made me happy too. so although she is not back up to par- we have had some gnarly temper tantrums over eating crayons i the last 24 hours- i think *hope* she is getting better.
