Wendy's dinner

Wendy is a fan of eating - always has been. I used to have to nurse her for hours at a time. Seriously, hours. She effortlessly made the switch from a liquid diet to solids. It was all good to her - as long as she has something to put in her tummy. I am deeply relieved that she is not a picky eater. She eats things you don't really expect 17 month-olds to eat. Things like lima beans, and vegetarian sausage. So for your entertainment, a photo-illustrated blog of Wendy eating dinner (you'll have to excuse the blurriness - that kid moves like lightning when there's food at stake):

As you can see - on tonight' s menu we have pineapple, which Wendy loves and refers to as "APP!" We had "APPS!" for dessert tonight after carrots, lima beans, and ravioli.

This is her charming "mouth-full-of-food" face, one of my personal favorites.

Wendy doesn't like the flash on the camera - it makes her squinch up her eyes all funny...and totally ruins her entire dining experience....of course, she could just be making me a lovely diaper surprise, those two faces are remarkably similar...

Now, on to some serious eating...

Listen here, Mama, time to get that flashy camera out of my face I'm trying to eat my dinner! soon as I get it unstuck from between my teeth...

I'm just going to ignore you and hope that you go away and leave me in peace to finish my meal.

I tell you - that little girl makes my world go round.
Good night - sleep sweet.
