Fighting the Good Fight

So, for those of you who have met the youngest member of our family, you know that she is SUPER independent (big shock) and already wants to do as much for herself as she can (just like all her brothers and sisters)!

Unfortunately, this even includes feeding herself. She will not allow herself to be fed with a spoon, or even have things placed in her mouth.

If you put something into her mouth, she will spit it out and put it back in herself. She just HAS TO do it by herself!

Well, as you have seen, this can get messy.

So, with a mother that continues to persevere, we found one more food she likes AND the first one that she will take from a spoon...yogurt.

Yea me!

Katie is very pleased with herself, as am I!

Yea Denise yogart is awesome until they try feeding themselves. WE loved the whole milk yogart to make our girls gain weight.

This whole independence phase can be trying - we're right smack in the middle of it!

I understand independence!! Caleb wants to do everything himself, and he also refuses to eat with a spoon!!
