Popcorn and Sweets

When I say that Lucy will not eat, that does not apply to a couple of foods, none of which have any nutrional value. She will eat popcorn, cookies, ice cream, candy, and anything else sugary any time. In fact, I think she would eat popcorn until she self destructed. It is by far her favorite food - just like her dad, Grandy, and Papa. We always have to tell her there is no more after she has eaten her baggie. She calls it pop pop. My dad and Justin make popcorn on the stove, and when Lucy hears either of them getting out the needed supplies, she will jump up and down screaming "Pop Pop YEAH!" over and over again. The other day I was going into a bakery to get us a cookie to share. I told her we were going to get a cookie. The line at the bakery was a million people long, so we left with no cookie. She continued to say Cookie? to me for the next hour. She could not let it go. We do not let her eat a lot of sweets, but when we do, she is in pure heaven. She has also developed a love for corn on the cob. Here is some evidence - she ate almost every single kernal. I was impressed. I must say, the past couple of days her eating has greatly improved. Woo Hoo!

Jen said...

Oh! I have such sweet memories of curling up in my grandfather's lap and sharing a bowl of popcorn :)

Don't worry! I survived just fine on popcorn, rootbeer, and honey buns!

Heather said...

Popcorn is a household favorite for Sarah, too. Hey, it does have fiber - that must count for something. :)

I love the pictures of her with the corn on the cob! That is too adorable! She should come and visit us - we have Pop Pop every night (the dogs think we make it for them!) and we would share!

So cute! Popcorn isnt to bad of a snack right! Maddie will eat popcorn all day to if I let her, when she is sick its the only thing we can get in her. I cant believe how long her hair is getting I love it!

Sherri said...

How sweet is that picture of her eating her corn?!? I also like the ones with her popcorn. Corn is my fave-she's a girl after my own heart. Thanks to her Pappy, Grace goes nuts for candy bars and ice cream. Nanny will let her have a sip of her Coke through a straw! The look on her face is priceless when she has that first sip.

StaceyF said...

All of Lucy's favorite foods are mine too! Who doesn't love sweets! And at least she knows to balance it out with something salty! I hope she doesn't end up being a saltaholic like me! Glad everyone's feeling better as well!

Sarah Stringer said...

Kate said...

Sara said...

Too funny! Just like my Lucy -- she can't get enough lollipops and chocolate. How does this happen with such good mamas like us??? LOVE the story about the cookie...sounds like someone is getting ready to turn two in a few months :) Your girl is getting so big and is so darn pretty. We miss you!!!

Lee said...

I love how she has her own baggie of popcorn yet she is eating it out of the enormous bowl! And I don't think there is anything cuter than a little kid mowing down a big piece of corn on the cob. Too cute!!

Kim said...

She is such a big girl eating that corn on the cob! We'll have to try that one.

Sarah said...

"pop pop, yeah"... That's too cute.

Susan said...

Lucy and Petunia are definitely similar when it comes to eating. I'm just so thankful that she likes several vegetables and most fruits.

I have really been loving all the photos of Lucy. You're getting so great at capturing wonderful expressions and moments. Keep up the good work and keep the pictures coming. Oh, Petunia likes looking at Lucy's pictures and videos, too! She always grins when she sees them.
