Overnight Q has become little miss independent when it comes to eating.
She wants to put things into her mouth herself, and if I get a spoon of food in there, most often she will pick it out with her fingers and put it back in herself. I tell her "no Q, keep it in your mouth", but she gives me this face and takes it out anyway....what am I going to do with her.
what a mess!
I am not an OCD person, nor someone who considers herself a "neat freak", but messy eating, soggy food on hands and faces, and food on clothes and hair...gross me out!
I know this is something that I am just going to have to get used to, but man...even posting this picture right now makes me uneasy.
But Q loves it. she loves feeding herself, and I can't get the food onto her tray fast enough.
She also loves to squish the food into her hands (ughhh), which makes the clean-up really awesome for mommy.
But I guess this is what is supposed to happen. I guess I can't feed her, wipe her face, then feed her again for the rest of her life...right? I mean that would be weird...right...okay you're right that would be weird.
Qiana has also mastered "the straw" and ever since she sipped on her cousin elsie's sippy cup with a straw in california she has been obsessed with straws...so I got her a cup of her own. I also got a regular sippy cup without handles...she wasn't a fan of the sippy cups with handles cause she loves holding it like a real cup, and the handles just got in the way. such a big girl.
Speaking of eating I need some ideas....
Staring next week (Q turns 1) the bottle is over, and I sm stuck trying to find something to feed her in the mornings before we leave for daycare. I don't have much time in the morning, so I need something quick and easy. So all you mothers out there....any ideas?
FYI: Q is not a fan of yogurt (nor any other "creamy" foods that have a textured similar to baby foods) so that is out as an option.
Oh. another funny thing about Q, that I have been meaning to post about forever...she loves my feet and legs and uses them as chairs, rides, or armrests...all the time. is this normal? :)
While watching tv I always put my legs up on the ottoman. Qiana will then purposely straddle my leg and ride it like a toy, or make me bounce her up and down like a rodeo bull....she loves it....my thighs do not.
If I have my feet on the ground she will sit her butt right on them, like a chair....why she does this, I have no idea.
such a weird girl. good thing she's so cute. hahahahaa
