Green Eggs and Ham, Please

Addison is a VERY picky eater, so we have been reading 'Green Eggs and Ham' a lot lately. Everytime I want her to try something and she says 'no', I just start calling her Sam-I-Am. Addison does not like it when I call her Sam-I-Am, so she will try whatever it is that I am making. Usually, she likes it. Just like the character in the story, she fights with me on food and then in the end, thinks it tastes good.

So the other morning, Addison asked me for eggs. I was stunned! Everytime I have ever asked her in the past to try eggs, she looks at me like I am crazy. So, I said that I would be more than happy to make her some eggs.
I made her both a fried egg and a scrambled egg.
Then after a few minutes of eating, she asked me to make her green eggs and ham. I told her that we didn't have any ham, but that I would love to make her a green egg.
(Don't look too closely at my egg. I over cooked it a bit...oops!)
Paige on the other hand LOVES food! She watches us intently when we eat.
She is getting to be such a big girl and can almost hold her bottle all by herself. It is too heavy for her when we have the full 6 ounces in there, but she can hold it when it gets down to 2 or 3 ounces.
I heard Paige start to wake up from her nap and thought to myself that I will go ahead and finish what it was that I was working on and then go get Paige. I thought that it won't hurt her to fuss for a minute.
After I finished whatever it was that I was doing, I went in to check on Paige (since she had gotten quiet) and this is what I found.
Addison had climbed into Paige's bed and was playing toys with her.
I absolutely love my girls!

My happy little girl!

That's good that Addi is liking eggs. She has something up on Grandma now. Paige is talking good.

I won't give you my opinion on those gross, creepy, slimy eggs! I'll just keep my thoughts to myself! If Addi is eating those eggs, it's totally not my fault!

I love the girls in the crib together! Maybe Addi will graduate to Paige's crib and end up sleeping all night!

Go Addison!!! That is a smart way to get her to try something. She is a good big sis to play with her little sister like that. Sarynn struggles to let Minnoh play with toys. Min can't even play with her own toys half the time.

I just love paige. Such girly gilr.

That's so cute that you found Addi in Paige's crib. How cute!

What a good idea to use Green Eggs and Ham to help with Addi's pickiness. I'm glad it has helped!

Whoa! Those green eggs are really GREEN EGGS! My kids always loved our green eggs and ham. So does our little leprechaun :-O Tell Addi that she is being such a big girl to try new things!

You have such beautiful girls! Look at Addison's angel hair. Oh, and I love the green eggs - I'm going to have to try that on Sam when he's older :)
