she hasn't given me peas all day yet!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

I gave Evelyn peas whole for the first time last night.
"Um, excuse me, Mom, but I don't like these."
What she should have said was:
"Hey, i've been turned in to a cow. Can i go home?"***
And she would have been excused.
While in the beginning she thought she would rather not have them and repeatedly threw them overboard, I think more ended up in her mouth than on the floor so I'll call that a success.

Whenever I think of peas, I automatically think of THIS hiliarious video. Have you heard of Kid History? My friend Katie introduced it to me and I think it is the most wonderful thing. 
"Then why is it dross? This is so dross!"
Watch and you'll see what I mean.

*** My sister thought this deserved clarification. I am not calling my daughter a cow, just merely quoting one of the greatest movies of all time, "The Emperor's New Groove" :)


  1. Peas have never become a favorite at our house either. But they at least tolerate them now. I have a video of Lydia (about 9 or 10 mo I guess) spitting Kix across the room. She got some serious air on those things! FUN to have littles. They're wonderful entertainment.

  2. Eeek her little face is just so adorable!

  3. i love that last picture of her with her face all scrunched up.

    we aren't onto solids yet here. i'll report back.

  4. I think I may have been the only person to get the Emperor's quote.

  5. oh my...she's precious! Hey, if more make it into the tummy than end up on the floor...that's a definite success!

  6. That was a hilarious movie. I was laughing so hard that I was crying- my kids thought that was pretty weird.

    On a side note, I nominate Clark to star as one of those kid voices. Too funny.

  7. love the "i don't like peas" face :) she is adorable!!

  8. Awww what a cutie!! Its always fun trying out new foods :)

  9. You daughter is SO cute! And so is your little family! Mad props to your baby for eating peas - my mom can't even get me to eat them and I'm 20 ;) New follower!!

  10. Hahaha, that is so funny! Isnt that video great. I love that the mom sings everything.
