Kivrin is trying new foods every few days now. This week she has enjoyed apple juice (well, sort of —  she gets it diluted with 4 parts water) in a cup, and pureed green beans. Her list of foods she has tried is: Pureed sweet potatoes, carrots, banana, avocado, peas, green beans, apples, rice cereal and oatmeal cereal, plus apple juice . She still liked teething on a nice cold celery stalk, and while she always smells like celery afterwards, I’m not sure she’s getting any food there, just a veggie-flavored teether.


 These photos convey a false indepence — We help her hold the cup most of the time, although she is getting better about helping support it. We would prefer to always hold the food-laden spoon, but Kivrin has other ideas about how feeding time should go and (especially right before bath night) she sometimes gets to try to feed herself.
