Do I see a Peruvian Pan Flute Band in Our Future?

Spoon Training

Hello my three loyal visitors! I know it's been awhile, but life is pretty busy with the kiddos. I plan to keep the posts coming (albeit sporadically), so keep checking back.

I recently decided that the time has come to teach Eli to feed himself with a spoon. Recently he has become very independent and doesn't like for me to feed him, and since we're both getting bored with all the finger food options (and not everything I cook is finger food and he will be eating what I cook!), it's time for him to learn the skill. Needless to say, our first attempt was.... well... See for yourself.

Perhaps chocolate pudding wasn't the wisest choice to start with. Any tips from the mamas on how to make this process go smoothly?

Tessa's not really doing anything cute yet, so I often forget to take pictures of her (poor thing... Think she might have issues about this one day?). But she's still pretty cute, so here are a couple of pics of her. I think we've gotten a few genuine smiles (not the gassy grins) out of her recently, so I'll try to catch some on camera to post soon.

I really hadn't thought that Eli and Tessa looked much alike, but now I don't know... What do you think?


Definitely a resemblance :).

I tried to get a few shots with the kids together. Eli wasn't interested in sitting still, so this was the best I could do.
