canyons and carrots

Henry has been putting all of this new teeth to good use. As evidenced in these pictures the boy likes to gnaw. Nothing makes him happier than to whittle a carrot down to size with his new molars. All four (two top, two bottom) are in now, in addition to the eight chompers he has in the front.

Both he and Emma are a still little persnickety when it comes to eating. We’re still mostly stuck on chicken for both of them, though anything with cheese will be consumed, too (pizza, quesadillas, grilled cheese, etc.) I’ve gotten wise to Emma, though, and can get her to eat some vegetables – including broccoli – so long as we give her some ketchup to dip with.

Any other suggestions for getting children to eat their veggies? I know it’s a life-long struggle, but I’m sure there are some fun ways to make them go down easier.
