No, I don't think you are crazy. I'm kind of in the same boat, though the entertainment doesn't even work for us. What can you do?? My son is very similar. LOVES his bottles, "so-so" on the food... He was doing great at first, eating everything we put in front of him, but as he approaches the 1 year mark the pickiness is starting to surface. I noticed that Emily Kate is 9 1/2 months-is she showing interest in feeding herself finger foods?? Evan loved it when he could finally pick up pieces of fruit, veggies and bread and feed himself. He refused being spoon fed. He is about 21 pounds at 1 year, which puts him I think around the 25th percentile as well, so I know what you mean about being concerned with the nutrition and getting enough. He eats like a bird, and I don't think that he's eating enough, so we try to just add a couple of snacks and more milk (just started that tonight)/formula to get the calories. I think that you just have to experiment. Good luck!
