Eating habits

The boys both have very different eating habits. Little Elvis is a slow eater, even when it's something he likes. He has so many other things he wants to do or talk about.

Baby Plum is a food shoveler. He crams as much into those little cheeks as possible, and then tries to stuff in even more.

This was very evident the other night when we took them to Chick-Fil-A.

When eating at a fastfood restaurant, we know that Little Elvis will only eat fries. We've accepted that. So, the boys usually split a Kid's Meal. Baby Plum gets the chicken nuggets and Little Elvis gets the fries.

Baby Plum stuffed as many chicken nugget pieces (I tore them) in his mouth as possible, then stole one of Little Elvis' french fries when I pulled the remaining nugget crumbs out of his reach.
(The picture lies, Little Elvis wasn't happy about losing a french fry.)

I think he had to chew for at least 5 minutes before he could swallow all the food in his mouth. Baby Plum is serious about his food.
