Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute
you didn't grow under my heart
but in it!

Messy Eating

When Gabriella arrived home from the hospital, she wasn't much interested in eating so Ken and I were willing to try just about anything to get her to eat. We thought that a scoop of pudding on her highchair tray, although messy, would be fun for her to play in and we figured some of it would get into her mouth!
After a few bites, she realized she was messy. She reminds me of me when I was little; I hated to be dirty. She immediately wanted to clean up!
So I gave her a napkin and she tried to clean the mess!:
Gabriella is also wanting more independence. She wants to feed herself now and her self-feeding skills are becoming more coordinated.
When she was done eating, she decided to play with the yogurt and poured the remainder of it out on her highchair tray!
