stamping is so funny!!

Last night I started stamping return addresses on our Christmas cards while Little Miss Twiddle was sitting in her high chair next to me playing with her toys. At first stamp, she started giggling....as I continued stamping, she started laughing louder and louder until it was full blown hysterics (as you can see in the video). We had a blast! She cracks me up!

playtime makes me tired!

avocado....yum, yum!




Miss P had been "eating" (really just making a huge mess and maybe swallowing a morsel here and there) her rice cereal and oatmeal for a couple weeks when Pat and I decided that it was time for her to move on to bigger, better, and tastier foods on November 10th. We had consulted with a few other moms and our pediatrician and decided to start with avocado. I didn't have high expectations to be honest but, as usual, our little miss suprised both of us and ate almost the whole bowl full. She seemed to LOVE it and I think she might have swallowed more of it than she wore....although these pic's don't really show that to be true, ha! I hear the oils in avocado are good for the skin so she must know that as she gave herself an avocado face mask the second time she tried it. She was tired, rubbing her eyes, and smeared the food all over her face right before bed. What a good girl - already trying to maintain that beauty!

oatmeal, yum!




Lastnight we decided to make a switch from rice cereal to oatmeal. We haven't moved on to 'real' solids yet because she still has the tongue-thrusting thing going on and is wearing more of the cereal than she is eating. In fact, I am pretty sure she isn't swallowing any of it! But munching at this age is simply about practicing for a lifetime of eating so we just keep getting messy twice a day in the hopes that one day soon she will open up wide, take a bite, and actually swallow. I think she liked the oatmeal more than the baby rice though and really wanted to dive right into it with her hands. She is too funny - she wants to hold the spoon on her own and manages to get it to her mouth but by the time it's made it's way there, the food is no longer on it! She insists on keeping her thumb in her mouth during meals as well - as you can see - which makes getting that spoon into her mouth quite a challenge. We make a little progess every day but it's a good thing that a majority of her food is coming from milk or else she would be one hungry bunny!
