Now he takes biscuits for breakfast and occasionally bread. He has a funny way of eating bread. First, he'll bite and eat the sides/skin. After all the sides/skin are gone, he'll take a bite of the bread and chew, then spit it out. :-| If we don't stop him, he'll continue to bite, chew and spit. He's exactly like jie jie. She was also going for the sides/skin at one point of time when she was a toddler.

~ no more skin ~
So what happens to the remaining bread? While he's engrossed in watching tv, we'll quickly feed him. Sometimes, he gets tricked, sometimes he doesn't. When he doesn't, I'll finish up the rest if the bread hasn't turned dry and hard.
He'll not eat (but play with it) when he's not in the mood for bread, even with jam or butter spread. I've also tried making nice shapes (star and flower) with my cookie cutters but he's just not interested. Sweet buns and flavoured bread, he's okay. Got to face the fact that he's a big boy now and doesn't like plain food anymore.
