She's got two bibs and no food.
She's so hungry she could eat her thumb.
What's a ten and a half month old got to do to get a little bit of food around here?
Some of Tikvah's recent ideas have been:
1. climb out of the highchair.
2. Scream loudly.
3. Find food on the floor, nearly all of it unsafe for a baby to eat, including, but not limited to: gummy bears, whole baby carrots, slices of apple, peanut butter and jelly, cucumber chunks, Cheerios, Wheat Thins and chips.
4. When things get really bad, she'll even eat her vegetables, unlike the stubborn, vegetable-hating children who have come before her.
The truth is, we do feed her. She's usually the first one in her chair and the last to get out and in the interim she eats and eats and eats. And not just because we forget she's there and accidentally leave her, either. When we do that, not that that has ever happened in our home to any of our children, she's taken to just crawling out herself, sometimes head first.
