Sunday 8 September 2013: One Hundred and Sixty One Days Old.
Over the last day or so Ayla’s really started to take an interest in what we’re eating by reaching for, grabbing at and leaning towards our food.
So at lunch today we decided to give her something of her own to eat and that’s when Ayla tried her very first strawberry.
We squeezed it a little first so that the juices seeped out then we put it in her food net and handed it to her.
Not unexpectedly, Ayla loved it!
She sat quietly sucking away while we finished our lunch peacefully, but before long Ayla started to get excited (or developed a sugar high… Not sure which).
Ayla was in Hubby’s lap and she started waving the food net around, banging it furiously on her belly and legs before letting it fling off into the dirt.
The game was over and the strawberry’s number was well and truly up but its legacy lived on in the sticky pink juice it left behind…. In Ayla’s hair, on her skin and all over her nappy – look closer at the photo!
