One night last week Jonathan came home from work and said he needed a big juicy hamburger and for us to get in the car. He wanted to eat at 5 Guys, but Smashburger is closer and also quite delicious! I tried to order Adalyn 1 chicken strip, but the girl didn't know how to charge me for it so I ended up ordering her a kids chicken strip meal because it only had 2 chicken strips anyway. She loves chicken, which is one of the reasons I keep cooking chicken and one of the reasons Jonathan had to go out to dinner that night. He told me later that he couldn't eat chicken one more day! Ha! Anyway, she ended up eating an entire chicken strip. Then she tried a french fry. She made a face and didn't eat the rest. Then she tried another fry and then another. After a while we had to cut her off because she was shoving her face full of fries. I'm worried that we've created a monster! :) Here are a couple pictures of how much she was enjoying her fries.
"Everyone look at this amazing new food I've discovered!!"
"I better shovel them in fast before mom and dad take the rest away!"
She still won't eat pizza and lots of other foods that I figured she'd dig right into, but she really has started eating so much! When I talk to her sitter, she says that Adalyn sees the older kids eating foods and will usually eat whatever it is because they are. So I guess peer pressure is good sometimes!
