Happily making a snack out of some old leaves.
On a serious note, Chloe has decided that at 7 1/2 months, she is old enough to feed herself. She completely refuses to be spoon fed and insists on feeding herself finger foods. Fortunately she is remarkably good at it for such a little baby. And I've learned that if you choose the right foods it's remarkably non-messy. She had corn for lunch and asparagus for dinner. I've learned she will choose peas over corn and just about anything over carrots when given the choice.
Now if she'll just learn to change her diaper, too, there will be much less work for me to do!
