Kalea will be 6 months old in two days! Truth be told, that boggles my mind. Wasn't I just pregnant?
Anyhow, since the introduction of rice cereal for the first time on her 5 month birthday she hasn't really been all that keen on food. I've tried cereal about once a week, but she makes silly faces & looks at me like, "Come on Mom, enough of this ridiculous charade. Where's the boob?" Today, however, I had the stroke of genius to pull out the mesh feeder. If you're not familiar with these contraptions, it's basically a mesh pocket that you can stick a piece of food in so that your baby can gnaw on it without fear of choking. Works great with most fruits, especially frozen ones during teething. I loaded it up with a ripe banana & let her go to town. She gnawed & gnawed & gnawed. And spread banana all over her face & hands & shirt & pants & seat & table too. Aside from the hosing down & mandatory wardrobe change post-meal, it was a success - it looks like we have an eater!
