Meal Time with MissyMoo2

I had big plans to do the second post last night but we're having computer trouble. So now I'm blogging from the iPhone. Talk about dedication!

I've hit a bit of a stumbling block in the past couple of days with MissyMoo2's meals. She's 6 months old now and has been on solids for a little while. I thought fussy eating was supposed to announce itself in toddlers but it has become apparent that baby is a quick learner (probably from watching her big sister).

She loves pureed pumpkin and pear, and apple and rice cereal are ok. Now that I'm trying to introduce meat, the little one has become set in her ways. She has taken to spitting the food which is in her mouth right back at me by blowing raspberries - the type done with the tongue between the lips to ensure maximum distance and breadth of spray. I should know when a spray is about to come because it's preceded by a grimace and screwed up face, as if she has chomped on a slice of lemon.

Last night after trying for longer than I'm proud of, I gave up and gave her a milk arrowroot biscuit. She smiled so cutely that I leaned in to give her a kiss and she promptly sprayed me in the face. Being a mum is so rewarding!
