david goes from being sweet and helpful one day, and the next---well, i'm ready to put him on the curb with a "free" sign around his neck!! i love him to bits, he truly makes my heart melt(as does emily), but there are moments when i wonder where my sweet boy went! for the most part, he plays nice and stays busy. then he'll try to climb up on a table top or write on the wall with crayon--normal kid stuff--but when i tell him "no", i seriously just sit and wait for his head to spin! he throws things, flops on the floor, and screams at the top of his little lungs! aside from the mood swings, i can not get him to eat a decent meal! its one little bite here and there, and that's it! i'm surprised that you can't see his ribs! he likes most things, i wouldn't say that he's a picky eater, but i don't know how to get him to eat it. i've tried letting him play while slipping him bites(this is the method that he prefers--but makes HUGE mess!). i've tried making him sit with his big boy spoon and plate...and he thinks its play time! i cringe watching him smear food from one end on the tray to the other, or when he rubs his potatoes in his hands like its lotion! but i bite my tongue and allow it...self feeding is messy at first, i get it...but he's not EATING, he's PLAYING! just when i see him take a bite, and let out that sigh of "oh thank god", the spoon is on the floor, and the bowl is on his head!
