That's my DS too, won't eat hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, PB&J.... loves seafood (especially shrimp); he'll eat mussels and octopus and all sorts of wierd stuff.
He also mostly refuses to eat from his own plate or bowl, even if it's the exact same dish with the exact same food as we have....he wants to sit on our lap and eat ours (and feed us in between bites).
Anything rolled (eggrolls, burritos, wraps, etc) if you offer him a bite, he'll insist on turning it the other way and biting the other end. (doesn't matter if both ends are closed, or whether you give him the closed or open end of one that is cut; he always wants the other end.)
If we serve mixed veggies, he'll pick all the lima beans out and eat them; but if we serve lima beans he won't touch them.
He loves to play in mud & puddles (rare find around here); but hates to have his hands dirty. LOL.... for example the other day we were out for a walk and found a couple puddles, so we started throwing rocks into them, which he really got a kick out of and was laughing at....but he'd go to pick up another rock, and if he was too close to the puddle and the rock was wet or he got some mud on his fingers, he'd drob the rock and come running over to have his hands cleaned. Then he'll go get another one; any wet or mud, same thing.
He also walked through the puddle and then got upset that his shoes were wet.
Last night for whatever reason, he thought he *needed* to have two tortilla chips on the tv stand. I didn't get it at first, he'd ask for a chip, and then another (not uncommon, he usually wants to have two of whatever he's eating, one for each hand)....and then go put them on the tv stand. If I took them (didn't realize what he wanted right away, so I ate a couple...playing w/ him, if you're not gonna eat those, I will) then he would immediately ask for more, and put them right back there. So there they sat for a couple hours. (He did finally eat them, guess he just wanted them for later.)
