Meals and snacks have become quite interesting at our house lately. My little miss has decided that she is a big girl, and that means no one can help her eat. at all. You can't even hand her the food. It needs to be placed in front of her (all of it, not just a piece). If she is handed anything, even a snack she shakes her head and says, "no." So snacks, like pretzels and crackers and such must be put in a baggie for her to carry around and pick out herself. Who is this girl?!?!
Chicken nuggets won't be touched unless she can 'dip' them in sauce. Same goes for pretty much any finger food. I was pretty sure that this kind of thing didn't happen until later....like 8 months later! She makes me laugh, cause she is so particular about things.
Today I watched her carry her pretzels from the kitchen to the living room one at a time, where they were placed in a row and then taken back to the kitchen one at a time. I'd love to know what she thinks she's accomplished.
She also announces when someone has finished their food by yelling "gone!" repeatedly while looking at them trying to get their attention. Maybe she thinks she's the only one that noticed and she better help out. I dunno, but she's pretty funny!
