The weather has been something else lately. Warm... cold... warm... cold with a possibility of snow... yeesh. Worse than the mind of a two-year-old. ;-)

Speaking of the little man, I'm so glad one some of the adoption seminars talked about nutrition. Otherwise I would probably freak out over some of the meals this little guy eats. While eventually he will be eating more what we eat, right now we usually fix food especially for him because of his many food allergies (wheat, milk, soy, egg, Brazil nut family, peanuts... I feel like I'm missing one of them...). Anyway, one of the seminars basically said that sometimes kids get into a groove with things they prefer, but as long as they balance out their diet overall an odd meal here or there is not a huge deal. The other night he ate applesauce, rice crackers, and apple juice. One time he had mandarin oranges, ketchup, and Kix. Yes, he eats some grains, lots of fruits and vegetables, and some meat. Don't worry. Overall he is healthy, happy, and as goofy a kid as we could ever want. A few changes of meal plans here or there shouldn't make a difference... ya know? Still, it makes me laugh sometimes.

I checked out a few books from the library for cookbook ideas that are friendly to the little man. The trick is finding the ingredients. Hey, everyone always talks about how challenging parenting is. If this is the worst we have it, we have it easy. :-D
