Chomp, Chomp, Chomp

Yesterday, Peyton had his 15 month check-up with the doctor.  She said that he looks great, he's 28.5 lbs and in the 96% for his height.  I had to laugh the other day when I took Peyton to a story time at our local library and he was so much taller than all of the other kids.  The doctor laughed when I told her about it and said he's just a big boy!  Anyway, we talked a lot about how Peyton can really start eating everything we are eating at the table.  That has really been a struggle for me as I am always so worried he's going to choke on something.  Am I alone in this worry?  Has anyone else been as reluctant as me to give table food? 

This morning when I made the typical breakfast for Peyton (mixed grained with some fruit mixed in), he didn't want it.  He flat out refused to take any of it by hitting and screaming in his chair.  So he had a glass of milk, we took Jackson to school, and when we got back I made a piece of toast.  I broke it up into pieces and gave him a piece for each hand and he has been pleased as punch every since as he "chomp, chomp, chomps" on the toast!  :-)  So far so good!

Now we are heading off to a Fun with Ones Story time that is designed for 12-24 month old children!  This is our first time of going to this program and I'm excited to check it out with Peyton!  Wish us luck!  ;-)

  1. I don't think you have anything to worry about. Just don't give Peyton really big pieces of things that are harder to chew. I'm sure the doctor can also tell you what kind of foods might not be good for babies. But they know to chew before they swallow. :-) I understand how the change can be intimidating at first. Lucas is eating mostly all table food now. It's SO nice not having to prepare a separate meal for him!
