Emmett’s MAJOR victory

      4 Comments on Emmett’s MAJOR victory

My parents sent Lizze and I to Outback for dinner on my birthday. It was amazing and we are so grateful for the time away.

While lunch was awesome, I couldn’t finish it.

I brought home about 20 oz of a 24 oz ribeye steak in a take home box. Emmett has been into beef lately, but only under certain conditions. Those conditions seem to be in flux all the time but I thought I would offer him some steak and see if he’d at least try it.

Over the next two days, Emmett ate every last piece of that 20 oz ribeye, all by himself.

I was thrilled that he ate that because it’s different than what he normally eats and that feels good to see. ☺

I wish I had taken a picture of the expression in his face when he ate the first piece because it was priceless. 😁

Emmett has been wanting to grill out all summer and we haven’t. Our grill is shot and it needs to be replaced. It’s not been high on the priority list but I’m re-thinking that.

Perhaps a grill would help to open up some doors for Emmett as far as food goes. I’d love to be able to actually cook and have the kids eat it. I’m a pretty good cook but the kids are so limited to what they’ll eat, cooking doesn’t work out well most of the time.

Anyway, the whole point is, Emmett ate something new and he liked it. This gives me a direction to go in, and perhaps I can finally balance his diet out a bit. ☺

    Diet issues are such a pain! Good for Emmett.
