I think my little girl is a vegetarian. The only thing that I can guarantee she will eat at every meal is her vegetables. She will eat any kind of vegetable but meat is hit and miss. Most the time it's a miss. She loves vegetables that most of us Northerners won't even touch or have never heard of. My husband grew up in the South and has introduced Asha to fried Okra, Mustard Greens, and Collard Greens. She loves asparagus, Homney, spinach, corn and salad. She goes nuts over salads.

We were at McDonalds today and I ordered her the traditional chicken nugget kids meal and she wouldn't touch them. All she wanted was her apple dippers and fries. What kid doesn't like McDonalds chicken nuggets?

She loves fruit too. She's always asking for apples and bananas. I am so happy that she eats healthy but she does need some meat in her diet doesn't she? She eats really good for the most part just not meat.

Toddler Bed~ I think we have decided to convert her bed into a toddler bed. She can now get into her bed by herself even if the railing is all the way up. She can't get out though so all day long she climbs in and then yells "Mama Stuck" so I have to get her out just so she can climb back in. She literally spent over an hour in her crib tonight just playing.

Here's a picture of my future basketball player. She loves basketball now after just playing for one day. She looks out her window and says "Basketball Hoop". She would put the ball over her head and look at her brother and say "help" and then when he would throw the ball and make a basket she would jump up and down like she made it. It was soooo cute!! She's got the height to be a basketball star. She is 90% for height. People don't believe me when I tell them she JUST turned 2. They think she's an older 2 or just 3. My girl is so big and growing so fast. I bought her sandals today and had to buy her a size 7 in toddlers. Last year she was a 4 or 5. Why do they have to grow so fast?

Here is my girl showing her sassy side. Daddy and mommy were talking and laughing about how silly she was being so she was pointing at us laughing at her silly self. We fenced in the backyard for her and she was loving running all over and antagonizing the neighbors dog who could only run to the end of her fence and Asha could go further so she would and that would make the dog whine for her to come back.

We are definately loving the outdoors and I should have plenty more outdoor pictures of her to share soon.

Oh my goodness, it's good to know someone else's toddler won't eat meat either!
