Goober Face

I'm so sorry family and friends that I have been such a poor blogger and have not been keeping you all up to date on photos and life. Right now I am neglecting a very messy kitchen to post a little something. I'll try to post a real something soon. No promises though. I don't have much computer time these days.

The following are a few photos of what we call her goober face. She has this really cheesy grin where she throws her head back, squints her eyes, and shows off her two widely spaced front teeth. It's hilarious! These photos really do a poor job depicting it. FYI- Liya's afternoon nap was precisely the time it took to get this posted. So my kitchen remains a disaster.

What's For Dinner?

Our girl is so active it's really hard to take a photo of her without it being blurry or having to use the flash. The high chair is one of the only places in the house I can take photos of her in natural light without her reaching for the camera or moving around.

Teething biscuits are a serious business.

No, I did not put my baby in a frying pan. She sat there by herself. She even got out and then went back in.

Speaking of we had a breakthrough at lunch. It's been difficult to get Liya to eat much besides her bottle. She really doesn't like being in the highchair and could care less about eating solid food. This afternoon I served her black beans for the first time and she loved them! It's a good thing because it is my staple food item so she'll be eating a lot more of those. She also ate green beans for the first time without making a "this is the most disgusting thing I've put in my mouth" face. She ate all I prepared except for a couple mouthfuls (which I hid in some pear-blueberry blend). I've lost count of how many times I have tried to feed her green beans. And, she actually drank water from her sippy cup instead of using it as a chew toy! Hurray for progress! We'll see how supper goes.

A few days ago I was working on my first Ethiopia trip post and then I lost access to my hard drive to get to the photos. One of these days I'll get it together.
