As the mother of TWO beautiful baby girls, I'm discovering how to make "Ashley's kitchen" into "Mama's kitchen." You know, like the kind in old movies and nostalgic country songs. Mama's kitchen - where everyone gathers to enjoy good food, weekend brunches, family dinners, and make lasting memories. That is my destination, and this is my journey.
We recently decided to let Annalyn try to start feeding herself, as a very early precursor to finger foods. Plus I'm hoping that learning to chew might stimulate these stubbord little teeth of hers to finally pop through. Her doctor told us at her 4 month appointment that she would likely be getting teeth soon with all the drooling and swollen gums going on... wrong! Over 2 months later, (despite lots of chewing/screaming/trying), still no chompers! So I decided to let her try these little puffy stars that essentially dissolve in her mouth anyway. Watching my persistent little Peanut learn to eat them was quite entertaining, so I thought I'd share.
hmm... these are new toys
kinda hard to pick up with these chubby fingers of mine
