When his 17 month old niece demonstrated that she relished smoked salmon, Alan decided to eat smoked salmon, too, and ate it yesterday. He asked for a smoked salmon avocado sandwich from our friends, the Cormies, when we visited them. He first ate this sandwich on June 23.
He says he is going to try other soups like he has done with the different flavors of Near East Rice Pilaf.
I am glad he is getting his braces off this summer, either in August or September, because he can then eat the crunchy foods in salad. He used to eat salad and also ate baby carrots with hummus before he got his braces.
We are getting him to get his own cart at the grocery store and I hope to see him pick up some new items next time.

Alan has vehemently rejected the new computer. He has said that he "can't afford" a new computer. He has said that he can't have a new computer because his old one has iTunes. Dad has assured him his new computer will also have iTunes. Alan has claimed that the new computer can be downstairs but not in his room. Alan considers his bedroom his private domain. Unlike other teens, Alan does not appreciate the new computer at all.
I have suggested to Dad that all further negotiations about this new computer onto which Dad is loading programs be done in written form in short notes. This will at least spare my ears and also require Alan to give reasons for his rejection and perhaps make allowances until he is ready to accept the new computer.
I am hopeful that transferring Alan to the new computer will be as successful as getting him to wear his new athletic shoes on the treadmill has been. He wears them now and ties them himself.
