He has now been given the green light to eat any and all kinds of foods. His pediatrician even said we could give him some spicy food and see if he likes it. This might seem a little weird, but I told her that Jason & I eat a lot of spicy things and feed Dillon something else from what we are eating. The nurse gave me a pamphlet on toddler nutrition entitled - "Why is my toddler such a picky eater??". I had to laugh because this so does not describe Dillon. He really likes all types of foods - we haven't found anything yet that he doesn't like. The other day, he kept grabbing for a lemon wedge, so we let him have it. He really is his mommy's little boy - He liked it!! Didn't even make a face.
I mentioned to his doctor how headstrong he has become and she said that even though he just turned one, he is in the "terrible twos" since this is actually his second year of life. Just great! She said that one year olds can be really stubborn, but I need to be more stubborn. She also said that this can be very hard. Yeah, I'm experiencing that already - oh boy! Lucky me!!
He still isn't walking but is getting closer. On Wednesday, he forgot the fact that he doesn't know how to walk: Jason walked in the front door and Dillon was standing holding onto my fingers. As soon as he saw Jason, he let go! and then he fell flat on his face. Poor little man. He now pulls himself up everywhere. Yesterday, he was standing holding onto the baby gate. Such a little monkey.
Well, that's all I have to update on...
