In the attempt to entice Ellie to eat "real" food, last night we put her in her brand-new high chair and gave her some Cheerios to play with. She enjoyed herself for about 10 minutes, and not one Cheerio ever got near her lips. Tonight, I made up some baby oatmeal really thick, and let Ellie play with it. At one point, she did bring the glob to her lips, but they were closed, and as soon as the oatmeal touched her lips she grimaced and pulled the glob away as fast as she could.
That looks appetizing, doesn't it?
