Still Wee

Mika's currently sleeping off her immunization shots. She got one in each arm. Mika handled it as well as can be...about a minute of post-shot screaming before the sparkly wind chime was too much for her to resist any longer. She's somewhere around the 20th percentile for weight (9.83kg\21.7lbs) and 30th for height. We're dumb and forgot to ask for the exact measurement. Her head is slightly under the 50th percentile. We were also given pamphlets on the food groups and what toddlers should eat, yadda, yadda. It's kewl that they care, but we're already well informed thankyouverymuch. It doesn't seem to matter much what we try with Mika - she rarely will actually try something and when she does, she often spits it out after a few chews. We've tried the various presentations thing as well. I think I'm just going to have to make everything french-fry shaped and see if that works. French-fry cut broccoli stalks. French-fry cut carrots. Raisins and grapes are apparently not supposed to be on the menu because of the choking hazard. Raisins are one of the only things that Mika will regularly eat. She only seems to like grapes now if she can have them whole..the halves and quarters simply don't cut it. We're also supposed to put Mika on vitamin D supplements again because we don't eat or feed her fish. Daddy eats fish and seafood sometimes, just not often. As far as I know, Mika gets some kind of fish about once a month at daycare. Fish freaks me out and I'd really prefer to not feed it to my kid. All the chemicals and waste and general grossness in the waters - yuck. No thanks. I know of a couple of babies that started on the multi vitamins at Mika's age and younger. It just seems weird to be popping Flintstones into her already. I'm considering testing the peanut butter waters with her early. We were told to wait until Mika's 2 or older, but if she's *not* allergic and will actually eat it, that would be a Good Thing.

I've been thinking about this raisin thing. I think it's bullshit. It's like anything else. It's only as dangerous and you let it be. It's not like you give Mika raisins and then lock her in the backyard unsupervised!
