"Ethan has always been a very resistant eater. He doesn't eat fresh vegetables, fruits, pasta, rice, or anything creamy."Ethan has been remarkably hungry and interested in food for the past several days. He is a new boy this week. I don't know how long it will last, or if it's here to stay, but the child is blowing me away with his desire to eat all the time and to try new things.
We were dining on some delicious Korean food last night, when Ethan decided to try eggs for the first time. It was fried egg with beef and green onions minced up in the mixture. Today he ate (and loved) red plums. He's also been inhaling watermelon and blueberries.
Could his sensory stuff be improving? Or even his overall digestion? Or is it just some weird phase, the likes of which we've never seen? Could it just be that he is finally beating the psychological game?
I have never been able to get him to drink a smoothie, but today he had several sips of his rice milk and blueberry smoothie.
This evening he ate chicken! That was going down the hatch just fine until he saw the bacon. He is "the Baconator" after all.
This is awesome, this feeling of comfort you get when you see your child eat normally. I'm feeling really optimistic and grateful at the moment.
