it’s a messy job, but someone’s gotta do it.

it’s true. our little wombat is growing up faster than you can say “rice cereal”.
hey, speaking of rice cereal…
she started eating solid food this past saturday! and she’s taken to it quite nicely.
she’s still figuring out the whole bite thing, the move-it-around-in-your-mouth thing and the swallowing thing…
and most of it finds its way out of her mouth and down her chin.
oh, and GOOD GRACIOUS she is a little distracto! we have a hard time focusing on the task at hand while eating. (oh look, a bumbo. maybe i’ll have a chew…)
but we’ll get it eventually.
(it has been interesting to me lately, the fact that eating is not innate. you’d think it was something you were just born to do, but it’s actually an acquired skill. go figure.)
per doctor’s orders, we’ll move on to veggies next weekend (i’m sure you’ll see a lot more videos once that’s started!)
and then down the road, so we don’t encourage a sweet preference, we’ll throw my personal prenatal predilection, fruit.

{NOTE: warning. this is 3 minutes and 46 seconds of something only grandparents might actually enjoy watching. really. and please pardon hurley, who is ungracefully lapping up her water bowl in the background.}

    Ok, I’m not worried that my granddaughter would rather eat her chair than rice cereal, I mean I’d rather eat my chair than rice cereal — where are the Frosted Flakes? And Addon, I hope she pays more attention to you when you’re explaining the nuances of pick-and-roll, or dating, or algebra…..
