milestone

For about a month now Kylene has shown interest in solid foods. And the interest has been increasing. How has she shown interest you may ask? She wants to sit at the table with us when we're eating instead of being on the floor. She immediately reaches for the plate and I've had to pry some food out of her hands that she snuck by me before they got to her mouth. She watches my fork go from my plate to my mouth licking her lips. She reaches out for my cup whenever I'm drinking. I can hardly hold her anymore when I'm trying to drink or eat because she's so insistent in trying to get at whatever I have. But it really wasn't until other people, some complete strangers, started commenting on the same things I saw, I knew I wasn't seeing things. This girl wanted her some solid food! So tonight I mixed up some rice cereal, you know, the good stuff. Got her in her highchair, brought the spoon to her mouth, held my breath, and...the verdicts in. She's a fan. A big one. I had to mix up some more.

Doesn't the first picture below spell complete satisfaction? She doesn't even know what's in store. Don't worry little lady, there's more than just rice cereal. Wait until you get the mixed fruit. It'll knock your socks off.

And look, at 5 mths she's feeding herself. What a good little girl. :)

This might bring back memories of another little girl about 29 years ago for my parents. I guess she loved her rice cereal too.

These pictures are darling! I especially love all that hair she has sitting on the top of her head. Too cute!

Holy cow those eyes are blue! Lovely lady! I loved this stage, but also hated when I got a lapful of food because my stealth baby grabbed the plate when I wasn't looking. She's getting so big!

Oh those blue eyes!! Gorgeous!! No one is going to be able to say no to her when she bats those eyes!

I love how you captured that blissful moment for her! I still can't get over how children love formula and rice cereal, they just smell so disgusting! That will be really fun to see when she gets the good stuff like sweet potatoes and fruit.
