I saw the birds scrounging for food this morning, so I put out some bread crumbs on our deck. I snapped this shot of Micah and the kitty watching our little customers enjoy their breakfast.
Keziah is a smart little toddler already and knows when I "baby-fy" her food. She refuses to be spoon-fed and will throw her food on the floor if I cut it up into little pieces. I assume it's because she sees Micah eating on his own and wants to be just like him :)
She will simply not eat anything if I try to feed her myself, so we have started the incredibly messy phase of self-feeding. The spoon doesn't seem to be as useful as her own hands though:
Keziah needs a bath after almost every meal these days!
Micah has his own finicky eating habits. He hates getting his hands dirty and won't eat something if he knows his fingers will get sticky. I remember being exactly the same when I was a kid:
Micah has another cold sore this week. He gets them about every other month and I feel so bad for him. Does anyone else have kids who deal with these? I'm not sure if I should talk to the doctor about them. I treat them with Abreva as soon as they show up, but I wonder if there's anything else that can be done to keep them from showing up so often.
This picture's a little bright, but so cute! Keziah walked around with this dolly all morning and brought her to me every time she needed to be re-swaddled :)
