When I was at my brother's, I caught myself tapping the floor next to the mess left by this girl, beckoning for the dogs to come. Alas, he has no dogs. I guess I didn't realize how much our dogs help with the foods that go overboard. I think I'd seriously consider cutting down on the self feeding without our four legged hoover system. This girl, though, she's a foodie. I've never gotten in the habit of buying premade baby foods. I just have always given my babies the foods we'd eat. There is nothing this girl won't eat. She eats everything. And she consumes enough to fuel her for a lengthy pilgrimage. Her latest fave? Kalamata olives. I chop those babies up and they are gone faster than I can keep up. I hope she's interested in gardening, as we'll need to up our yield to keep up with her appetite!
