Well when we went to the doctor last week Allie's doctor said that I should try to start introducing her to table food so we tried the other night. I was extremely nervous and honestly I don't know why...she's not my first and I've fed 3 others for the first time in previous eight years so I shouldn't be uptight about it but I was. I was terrified!!!! I was so scared that she was going to choke or something was going to happen and I would panic and not know what to do. Anyhow..we started with diced carrots. I put them on her plate and she played with them for a while but couldn't connect the dots that you had to pick them up and actually put them in your mouth. I put the first one in her mouth and she DID NOT like it at all!!! I couldn't help but laugh when I saw her face. I tried a couple more but she never really warmed up to them so I took them off her plate. After that we put those Gerber Graduates Puffs on her plate and she immediately knew that what she was supposed to do with them..she put the first one in her mouth and ate away. Every night since then she's snacked on them at dinnertime but still no carrots..we'll have to work on those.
