:: egg yolks and a growing girl ::

Greta's very first mouthfuls of solid food were had on vacation one morning during breakfast. She sampled some of my egg. (We got a picture of it, of course; maybe I'll post it later with my other vacation pictures.) She is growing fast and is getting more and more eager to eat our food. She leans forward to have a drink whenever any of us is drinking something and always wants to grab the food off our plate during meal-times. This morning was the first that we attempted to have a real breakfast time for Greta.
She sat in her highchair and wore a terry bib. I need to sew a sort of belt for her chair to keep her from sliding right out (we improvised with her blanket). She seemed to enjoy the experience of this morning's egg. I think she ate three little half-spoonfuls. She sucked all of it right off of the spoon, and then I let her chew on the spoon by herself a bit. Do you see anyone who looks like she'll be left-handed? Of course when all the excitement of chewing on her spoon was over she filled up her tummy with noonies. She likes that best of all. So... here we begin another daily rhythm with the Rosebud! ~'::

She seems happy with her new treat!

Use a piece of that rubbery shelf-liner stuff with the bumps on both sides--it wipes off nice and clean and gives the perfect amount of friction to keep that sweet little however in place without tying her up. I had a girl slide out to be caught under her chin by the dish-towel tying her at Grandma's house--she was fine-surprised I did not need a defib machine though--I was SURE it was tight! I looove that shelf-liner stuff-used to put a big piece under sleeping bags at camp to keep them ON the slidy mattress!

The spoon picture is priceless!

It would be so fun if she ended up being left-handed! We'll have something in common!!!

I absolutely love the spoon picture!
