I don't really know what I am musing on these days. It's more like an irregular stream of consciousness thing...it seems to be working.

I Like To Eat Eeples and Beneenees

If you don't have kids, you probably don't know that song, but it's both catchy and inane. At any rate, Peabo has made her first forays into the world of solid food with smushed bananas, and I'll be dipped, she likes it. And is actually surprisingly adept at not losing the goop. Much of the time she is more interested in sucking on the spoon or the bowl, but hey, however she wants to roll is fine by me. She just today started anticipating the spoon with a little open mouthed bird imitation, so I think bananas are on the plus list, at least this week. Rice cereal starts tomorrow. Nothing but madcap excitement in the Hoffman house, I tell ya. I admit I'm going to do the crunchy Mom thing and make most of the food she will eat (save the things the pediatrician has asked us not to do, like the cereal--for iron--and carrots--avoid soil nitrates), not least because it's so much easier to just do that and feed Bean concurrently. For instance, today Peebs had about an eighth of a banana mashed up and Bean got the rest chunked up in a bowl with a fork. Oh, because now she has decided that she's apparently always been able to eat with a fork, and oh Mommy, isn't it funny how I make you crazy with my lack of independence and then all of a sudden I'm a big rockstar? FUN TIMES, MOMMY. Seriously, although I still have to load the fork for her, she can now find it by herself, bring it accurately and neatly to her mouth, eat what is there, and return fork (most of the time) to the table or bowl. Not to mention today's lightbulb moment, which was when she got about half the banana chunk in the first bite, had the other half left on the fork and kept it near her mouth for finishing.

Excuse me? When did she figure this out? OVERNIGHT?

It was a good twenty minutes. And now they are both napping. Huzzah.

Wait until Peebs is eating pizza and bbq with her big sister. I seriously think the Bean is going to show all sorts of spurts of knowledge and growth to keep up with (and go beyond) her baby sis.
