She is doing better with feeding herself lately, though she still only has her two middle teeth on the bottom. Six teeth on the top and two on the bottom – not super helpful for biting. But she’s learning. And mostly due to laziness, I let her feed herself whenever possible, including certain things that would normally not be considered finger foods. Like pasta. And mashed potatoes.
So last night, I was feeding her applesauce, but she was really interested in the spoon. I’ve let her try using the spoon in the past, but she doesn’t quite get it yet. She usually just holds the spoon in one hand, dips it in the food, then uses her other hand to take the food off of the spoon and put it in her mouth. But I figured I’d let her give it a shot, and lo and behold – it worked! For a while. Chason took a video. It’s long, but it’s pretty funny.
Not too much else is new. Our furnace went out on Wednesday night – not cool considering it was hovering around zero degrees outside. We put the space heater in Romelie’s room so she wouldn’t freeze and bundled ourselves up in blankets, but it was still 54 degrees in our house when we woke up Thursday morning. Luckily I had already arranged to take the morning off of work, so we got someone to the house right away and we’re back in business.
We also went to a baby shower for our friends Amy and Vinny last weekend. One of the games was guessing the baby food flavors. Romelie was able to participate in that game – she enjoyed everything, even the ones I’ve never fed her before, like the baby food ham. That was seriously gross.
Only 3-1/2 weeks until we go to Houston! Can’t wait to see y’all.
