Pick Pick Pick Pick Pick Pick

TG has now entered a week of picking out pasta and eating only pasta. She won't even eat shrimp which is one of her favorites. She's eating 1-3 pieces of protein and then diving into the pasta.
I'm compensating by serving pasta with veggie sauce. She's still not eating veggies whole. She likes it mushed or if it's orange. Green stuff, not so much. I've been dealing with it by serving carrots and sweet potatoes and squash. She'll eat spinach if I add it to her meatloaf.
It's not that she doesn't like it. She's eaten them before but I suppose it's a texture aversion. She still only has 8 teeth. Should I be worrying? All her playmates have incisors and molars cutting in.
Anyway, my latest invention is shrimp and avocado pasta salad. I make guacamole and toss in some salad and cooked shrimp. If I'm lucky, she'll eat 2-3 pieces of shrimp and then eat the pasta that has been coated in avocado.
Hope this phase passes soon.
