CarrotsWhat's Up Doc? 01/26/07

Harriet loves eating solids. Every time I put her in her high chair she smiles and giggles. Of all the fruits and vegetables she's tried so far (carrots, beans, peas, prunes, sweet potatoes, squash and apple sauce) carrots are her favorite. If she could, she'd eat carrots with every meal. She likes them in her rice cereal and she likes them by themselves. She even likes them with curry (I added some today because she was eying the curry I'd made myself for lunch).

She gets impatient if I take to long between spoonfuls or step away from the table to cook my own lunch. Today she grabbed her bowl from me and started to feed herself. First she tried with a spoon and managed to get four scoops from the bowl to her mouth. Then she lost track of her mouth and scoop number five went into her eye instead. After that she decided to use her hands instead to feed herself.
