More new tricks - hugging AND utensils

My sweet baby has really learned to hug. She hugged me over and over again a couple of days ago - and snubbed her daddy. Today, she blew kisses, waved and hugged good-bye to Aunt Ces. Each time she hugged, we would say "aaww" and soon, so did she. She liked it so much, she kept hugging and aawwing, even after we stopped.

She's also decided it is much more civilized to eat with a fork and spoon. How did she get so big so fast? And how can that be so much messier than eating with hands?


Maddie, my eating machine. For breakfast this morning she ate a bowl of oatmeal, pineapples, a tangerine and as much of my eggs as I would share. I think she ate a whole egg. For lunch, she ate her noodles, green beans and fruit and then shared white beans and sausage with Aunt Cessie. Guess she really does need a fork and spoon for all that food.
