Have you ever had astronaut food? Well, I have, they sell it at the museum we used to go to growing up. It's all dehydrated and way more expensive than I think it should be for less than mediocre food but, hey when you're on a field trip and you have $10 in your pocket what else are you going to buy? Well there are full on meals which are interesting to say the least but then there's the ice cream, it's like baked circus peanuts, all dehydrated but weirder. Well if you have had the privilege of partaking in astronaut ice cream you have a slight knowledge of what infant yogurt is!
She was so confused when we first gave it to her, with her quizzical look and the little tongue pushin' and trying to flip the lil communion like wafer out of her mouth. Then it started to "melt" and sure enough she flipped that sucker right back onto her tongue and before the first one was gone grabbed for more.
She's totally getting more into food, she has these teething biscuit/cookies that she's in love with. Gnaws on them till she's got a lil nubbin of one left and then she just shoves it in her mouth like a debit card in an ATM.
One of the doctor's at the practice we go to says she needs to be eating 6-8 jars of food per day and can I say that I don't think I could eat that much. I'm hoping she was confused as to her age or something but we're lucky if we can get our kid to eat 4! Our doc is totally on the same page as us when it come to feeding and nursing and all that entails so we're happy! And no worries, she's healthy!
And on the happy note; We bought her an insanely over the top stuffed animal Friday. We make it a point to not buy her excessive amounts of toys and really don't want a crib full of security plush toys but I just couldn't pass it up.
A 5 foot tall stuffed giraffe! I know you want one! Addiston loves it, get close and smiles real big then acts shy and buries her face in your shoulder then whips around and hugs it like it's a long lost friend.
Speak of new stuff: cheap art!
Thanks for the inspiration restoration hardware.
The little one is also mastering the art of the sippy cup, it's led to some minor confusion with nursing that we won't go to deep into detail about but we're gettin there!
I'm loving that she's getting more independent when it comes to food, I don't have to schedule things around her eating schedule, I can throw some veggie puffs in the diaper bag to hold her over in case I'm not going to be home on time and she is thrilled with them, so we're both happy!
