Big kid

Kaelin has really gotten into eating finger foods this past week. Spaghetti noodles, green beans, cheese, nectarines, toast, turkey …. it’s a whole new world. She is the most voracious eater I’ve ever seen .. so ready to be a big kid. Her favorite is cheese .. can’t get enough of it.

Reese has been a tad more reluctant. She has taken a few bites of toast and green beans .. but doesn’t quite get why her sister thinks it’s so fabulous. Cheese made her throw up which is her reaction when she thinks something tastes yucky. Great fun. I’m going to try her a milder cheese tomorrow to see if she’s more open to it. Nectarines were a hit. The first taste that she had she looked up at me with those big blue eyes as if to say “Where the heck have you been hiding this stuff?!?!” and started to clap her hands. Very cute.

Our big news of the day is that Kaelin made the sign for “more” three times today. We are very excited. It turns out I’m NOT just using sign language for my own amusement after all (as I was beginning to think). It seems appropriate that her first sign would be for food! She’s such a piglet.

I can’t believe how fast my babies are turning into little girls.
