Every night we sit and eat tea together which Jamie and I really think is important family time and a very important meal because its when we all eat the same food. Reagan is so observant and realises eating with a fork is what mom and dad do so she wants to eat like we do too, so we have been encouraging her to eat off her new fork she got from her bezzie cousin last week.
Her enthusiasm really makes me smile when you hand her the fork with food on it and she takes it from you in her right hand and then passes it to her left hand (I think she may be lefthanded) while studying what food is on it then she very carefully puts it in her mouth and begins to eat it….at this point she hands the fork to me to be reloaded and then joins me in a round of applause for the best most cleverest little daughter we have but the applause soon stops when she realises I am not reloading the fork quick enough?
She now eats all her food like this only resorting to fingers when dad doesn’t securely load the fork properly and the food drops off 🙁 She is starting to try and stab food herself but I think that may be a little way off yet so we just encourage her and let her try (she hates you trying to help lol?)
Towards the end of the meal she had some mash left and a few carrots so I got some mash then stabbed a carrot and passed it to Reagan who promptly removed the carrot and ate the mash from the fork and handed it back to me. So I stabbed the carrot again and handed it to Reagan who again removed the carrot and lean’t really far forward and handed me the fork again…..mommy and daddy fell about laughing sorry Reagan!
She ate all the meal except the carrots from a fork but then when there was nothing else left except carrots she ate them too but with her fingers…she really loves to eat and its always worrying when she goes of her food. I don’t think a diet of vegetables by the bowl full will do our Reaganator any harm, I’m sure if we served up junk food she’d be in trouble and so would we I suppose?
