Clover ate entirely organic until she was about a year old or so. I had forgotten about that until yesterday when I remembered as I handed Rocket a handful of Cheerios and Gerber veggie puffs. I never would have given those things to her, but then she didn't eat nearly as much as her brother. It is easy to only feed the best food to your baby when she barely eats. Rocket is a huge fan of the puffs, which we all know are just a stepping stone to Pirate's Booty. A gateway puff.
Clover's first few Easter baskets were candy free, which is another thing that is changing. I wanted to focus on things other than food, but despite my best efforts, Clover has a raging sweet tooth, like both of her parents (I'm eating Reese's Eggs while typing. I bought them a week ago, but have not touched them until today, however I am making up time by eating more than I should). Yet, where she is much better off is that she clearly knows when she has had enough and that it is time to stop eating. That makes it harder to say no to candy during a holiday because the girl does know her limits, so last night I did the previously unthinkable, I bought Peeps for her Easter basket. She is going to go nuts, especially because they are pink, even though I really liked the pastel sage ones myself. The hard part is going to be keeping Rocket away from them. He's getting a book in his basket, but if I know him, he'll still put it in his mouth and eat it.
