She's only 9 months old, but Avery's already got a personality that's too big for her britches.
This last week she has decided that she will not eat by spoon. For a couple of days all I could get her to eat were crackers and puffs because she will feed them to herself (I'm not allowed to help). I thought this phase would last just a day or two but it's proving persistent.
To outsmart the baby, I started using a cracker as a spoon. If I spoon baby food onto the cracker, she will let me feed her. (Please can Gerber start making edible spoons/spoon-shaped crackers?! When you see them on the shelves one day, I totally thought of it first)
If I put a bib on her when she eats, she will almost always shove her bib in her mouth in between bites of food. This ends up being rather counterproductive so lately I opt for no bib. It's actually less messy.
Her favorite toy is a broken remote.
She laughs when she hears babies crying.
She will grab your face and stare into your eyes, nose to nose.
And then lick your nose.
