There are a couple things you should know before you read this post:

1. Mr. BUB and his dad are on a competition cooking team.  Nothing pleases them more than a nice brisket.  Or venison sausage.  Or riblets.  And they're goooood cooks.  My taste buds sing a joyous song when I eat their cooking.

2.  Baby BUB has been nicknamed Skeeter.  There was a vote and that name won.  The other options were Sparky and Fiesty Badger.


Baby BUB doesn't like meat. 
Now, I've never been a huge meat eater, but I do enjoy a good steak.
Or chicken wings.
And brisket.  

But now, I can't handle any meat.

There's a frequent conversation between me and the baby.  It goes something like this:

Me:  Meat is good for you, child!
Baby BUB: Nope.  I don't want any.
Me:  Oh yeah?  How about this piece of steak?
Baby BUB: No way!
Me: Gosh darnit, Skeeter, it's good for you!
Baby BUB: You feed me that, and I'll make you throw up.

...we'll continue this talk once you've exited my womb, child.  Just you wait...

In other news, it appears Skeeter is already as stubborn as his/her parents.
We're in trouble.

I think fiesty badger would have been a better nickname. Just saying.

Fiesty Badger? Man, that would have been my vote.

I haven't enjoyed meat much either! Especially in the first trimester. I wanted it a lot in my second and third, though. I really wanted sweets.... all throughout... especially froyo!!

Cmon skeeter. Quit being lame!
(I'm jealous of the delicious brisket you no doubt consume... is it like one of those bbq competition teams? YUM)

Damn Skeeter!! The meat is good!! My daughter HATES all meat... it sure is fun figuring out what to feed her hope it doesnt continue outside the womb :-(

Oh no! If I were pregnant and my child was all not liking TEXAS...I think I'd have a coronary.

Mommy Lisa said...

My friend Amy could only eat McChicken sandwiches when she was pregnant - for meat - she didn't have a problem with other kinds of food, just meat.

Kasey said...

I would totally have picked Feisty Badger too. ;-)

I am not sure what would happen if I couldn't eat meat. That makes me sad.

Amanda said...

Um...I seem to have missed the post where you announced SKEETER! Great nickname by the way (much more original than other baby nick names).

Jules said...

so you're not much of a meat eater, eh? How come I did not know this? I love meat.

and that stinks, you can't have any of their brisket for a while. you can just send it my way!!

Love the name Skeeter! But I'd be pretty sad to not be able to eat meat. :(

Love the nickname, though the first thing I thought about was Doug Funny's best friend. :)
