My one year old is learning to feed herself. What a mess! She enjoys putting the food in her mouth as much as on the floor. And she loves swirling her fingers around on her tray and then wiping the food in her hair... I don't think it's on purpose. She just loves the way it feel between her fingers, I think.
Abigail seems to be the black hole of all of her parents allergies. She's allergic to oats, milk, soy, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, apples, probably blackberries... Who knows what else... We're hoping she grows out of some of it. We've had to add food REALLY slowly, one every week or two. She's eaten a lot of bananas and pears. In the last two weeks we've finally passed the test of wheat and eggs. Yay! Those two would've been really bad... We've got a friend who goes into anaphylactic shock if he's in the room and you COOK with eggs. Can you imagine?
And so it goes.
