Comments for Eating Dinner
Eating dinner: 03/27/07
Harriet has been waking up hungry around nine or ten at night. Today we kept her up for dinner with us and she had a wonderful time. With her four teeth she was willing and able to eat some table food. Ian cooked some trout and peas and Harriet happily ate some of each along with a puree of apples and plums mixed together with some oatmeal.
Harriet had fun trying to feed herself the peas. She can pick them up easily. She usually does the raking motion to get them but sometimes she can even manage the pincher move.
She also enjoyed eating the fish, though this I didn't let her feed herself. I wanted to be sure every piece was free of bones. She ended up eating about a quarter of a fish.
Normally Sean would have been reluctant to eat fish but with Harriet being a big girl and eagerly eating fish, he wasn't about to be outdone by his sister! It's times like this that I adore sibling rivalry.
