In the past few weeks, Ellie has taken to feeding herself, and does a good job at it. She can feed herself hand-held food, biting off what she needs (though she often bites off more than she can chew, literally) and she can also feed herself from a spoon or fork, though for now, Marti and me are still the ones putting the food on the fork/spoon. I’m not about to let her do it until she can do it without a big mess! Continue reading “Ellie feeding herself [VIDEO]”
Ellie has taken so well to all sorts of food. We’ve been very intentional about being very adventurous with what we feed her, and giving her the chance to try anything that we eat as well, whether that’s veggies, spicy food or anything else. There’s nothing that she won’t try and nothing that she hasn’t liked so far.
In the picture, Ellie is chowing down on her lunch of garlic kale, sweet potato and black quinoa. Score!
Ellie’s pretty funny when she’s drinking her smoothies: she looks like she’s taking a big shot of something fierce the way she knocks it back. Continue reading “Knocking back her smoothie [VIDEO]”
This is the first time we’ve given Ellie kiwi. At first she appears to love it, then she contorts her face in disgust. Hilarious! Continue reading “Ellie trying kiwi [VIDEO]”
Ellie has taken such an interest in food that any time she sees us eating, she wants in on the action. Yesterday, as I was lying down eat some hummus and crackers, Ellie crawled up behind me and pulled herself up on my shorts to peer over me and see if she wanted what I had. She did. She always does.
We’ve started slowing introducing Ellie to some solid foods now, and it’s quite funny watching her reaction to different flavours. Judging by her lunge and grabbing, I’d say she’s quite keen on apples. Continue reading “Ellie’s first taste of apple [VIDEO]”
Lately, Ellie’s been feeling ashamed while she’s eating…
I’m at home looking after Ellie today and she was quite excited at the prospect of lunch.
Well, she’s only two and a half months old, but apparently Ellie can already hold her bottle and feed herself! She’s going to be an independent little girl!
Much like her Daddy, Ellie sometimes gets a little dozy after a big meal
