One Step Ahead

Sometimes Steven surprises us with what he understands and, more importantly, how he interprets it. A while ago, Mark teasingly told Steven that if he didn't finish his cracker, they'd have to give it to the dog. Well, Steven decided to simplify the process and just handed over to the dog. (We later found out the reason for his sudden dislike for the graham crackers was because that box tasted like moldy cardboard.)

This morning, he ate all his pineapple (current favorite) and most of his eggs. I gave him some green beans, which he usually eats. He ate one or two but didn't want anything to do with the rest. I ate one of his tray and told him it was yummy. His response? Picking up a handful and giving them to me to eat. Is that a sign of sharing or a clever way of getting out of eating them?? (In the end, he did eat them all.) What a crazy little boy!

Our 3 year old now "shares" when he realizes there's dessert! He knows he can't have any treat unless he finished his plate so it seems as if Steven has caught on early of how to get rid of food!

At least he finished the green beans though!

Hahaha, so cute!

I don't mean to nag, but could you let me know if you do or don't want/need our crib mattress? It has been in the back of our van for nearly 2 months and I'd like to take it out if you don't need it. :-)

That is so cute. Bekah learned to share with our doggy very early in life. Baily isn't allowed in the dining room while we are eating, but she does like to sneak in when we aren't looking.
