Friday, 11 October 2013: One Hundred and Ninety Four Days Old.
Ayla’s started joining Hubby and I for dinner.
Dinner time falls right in the middle “witching hour” so Ayla’s usually clingy and squirmy and loud, making eating tea as a couple virtually impossible.
So this week we tried putting Ayla in her high chair at dinner time so she could eat with us and its been one of the best decision yet!
Although Ayla really just makes a massive mess of whatever veggies are on offer, I love watching her learn about food.
So far this week Ayla’s tried (and enjoyed!) pumpkin, sweet potato, tomato, broccoli, asparagus and avocado!
When Ayla’s not playing with her food, she’s happily telling us about her day.
Nine times out of ten Ayla stares straight at her Daddy, chatting away with expression and intent like any other kid, except that she doesn’t have words yet!
Yep, dinner time is quickly becoming my favourite time of the day. With my Hubby on one side and Baby Ayla on the other, there’s no place is rather be 🙂
Here’s the video I promised to post earlier this week.
It’s footage of Ayla trying her first proper baby food “Pear and Superberries” by Rafferty’s Garden.
We only gave her enough for a little taste but she LOVED it!
Sunday, 18 August 2013: One Hundred and Thirty Eight Days Old.
During this weeks grocery shop Hubby and I discovered little pouches of puréed fruit for babies aged four months and up.
We couldn’t resist.
The first cab off the rank this morning was Pear and Superberries and according to Ayla it was berry delicious!
Within seconds of her very first taste Ayla grabbed the pouch off Hubby with both hands and sucked away at the nozzle – hard!
She had thick, purple, pear and berry juice all over her face, hands and clothes in no time, but she sure loved every second of it!
And so did I.
It was beautiful to watch Ayla’s eyes open wide with surprise and curiosity and see her tiny tongue lap at the flavour on her lips as it dribbled down her chin.
I can’t wait to try out the other flavours and see what Ayla thinks of them!
