Here's a story, of a lovely baby (sung in brady bunch theme song)...


Saylor has been wanting to eat solids for a while now. She detests (unlike her big sis) baby food , mushed up stuff, purees, expensive organic vegetables steamed, or boiled and then put in a blender. Wasteful little bugger she is. As you can see here she is attempting to eat the coffee table as Athena is none the wiser.





Saylor has taken it upon herself to send me a message. She researched and researched and basically told me (in her own way that only I understand) "listen lady, I want your food. What you eat, I want. I don't care how big, how crunchy, how hard, and how completely inappropriate for me it is. I want it. Now." I told her I was nonplussed, but, somewhat understood and would oblige.





Here she is waiting for her food while she has puff appetizers. She looks like she is humoring me. What a cheeky girl.





Here she is eating...ready for this.....curried chicken and rice noodles. She could not get enough of this. Happier than a clam in high tide. And yes, Nan Nan and Mimi, she is eating right on the table not on a plate ;)






Here she is attempting to kick up her heels in happiness whilst still in her high chair thingee ma jig.



So, the moral of the story is that babies want suggestion boxes placed throughout the house so that they can share with management (aka, mum and dad) how they can improve their stay.

I remember when Gavin told me that he was ready for "real food"... he put his chubby little hand RIGHT into my cereal bowl. I got the message, loud and clear!

Oh yes! Great suggestion! LOL

My youngest HATED baby, bland, smooshed, mushed food. He was ready to jump right into mommy food.

Email me at luevano_a@yahoo.com and I will guide you to google analytics. I had to have my hubby help me out! LOL

haha! I can relate-my mom would be aghast to see anyone at all eating directly off a tabletop--she ingrained that in me too but I've finally been able to let that go after watching (aghast) as Leo did it all the time-plus with the second you have to kind of let go of some of your germaphobe protectiveness... There is no way with a toddler (and a pet) around to keep anything sterile for more than 5 seconds.

She's so cuuuuuute! My midget just flat-out refused baby food one day and still will barely let us feed her.

And to answer your comment, do you mean you want instructions how to make the button or how to post it on your blog? You can email me if you want oikology101 at gmail dot com to respond. I will put up the tutorial on how to make the button after the midget's bday party is over. Too much other stuff to do this week!
