when in rome...

eat like the romans do! when i say this, i am referring to the romans of ancient times. you know way back when they would recline while they ate.

 

well, apparently our youngest daughter has taken to eating like the romans did. all reclined, like, in her chair with her arms behind her head while her servant, namely me, feeds her.

up until the other day, she has been very insistent on feeding herself. but saturday morning, in the middle of her bowl of hot cereal she stopped feeding herself and assumed this position:

mitch and i thought it was the funniest thing. every time she wanted a bite she would open up her mouth like a little baby bird and look in my direction until i filled her mouth with a delicious scoop of oatmeal:

Kids are so funny. When Riley was first started eating finger food, and for some time after, he was insistant that we wipe his hands off between each bite. He always had to be clean.

do these kids even realize how lucky they are? seriously, i am so glad there are blogs to document things like this!

It's so funny when they get something in their mind like that and completely change their habits. She's so dang cute!

Awwwh, and I missed it! Lucky, Malia and Kawika. It looks nice and sunny there. Are you enjoying summer? I hope so. It's extreamly hot and muggy here today. but I hear the surfs up! Aloha,

Oh, poor baby. Life is rough! :-) That is so funny that she changed so fast! Maybe now she'll switch her food preferences to veggies! :-)

I certainly would not worry about that child's future ability to get what she needs in life!

Gotta love those girls of yours!

Bridget said...

That is great! I wish someone would feed me.

I agree, life is grand when you are 22 months old :)

Now you need to fan her with palm fronds and feed her grapes :)
