yes, those are piles and piles of boxes in the background--another starbucks, please
With the exception of some food Grammi got for Dalia to help us on the road while we are moving, Dalia is past pureed foods (at only 8 months). She has been eating chunks with her hands for about a month already, but I have "let go" and allowed her to self feed. It is scary at times (um, she looked at me with a mouth FULL of sweet potatoes), but I know this is an important step in her development and she is ready ready ready.
the smaller the chunk, the more annoyed and frustrated she gets...too much work for not enough food!
