White meat or dark? Do you have a preference? Claire certainly does. Here’s a funny sequence of her chomping on the legs of her bug toy. But lately, the thing she’s most interested in is chewing on is her own hands. Thank goodness! If you recall there was time when she preferred her mother’s forearm.
Claire’s newest trick seems to be “gathering.” She reaches for things with both her hands in an attempt to “scoop” the item towards her mouth. More often than not she misses and winds up with a mouthful of fist…which seems to suit her fine anyway.
Claire still hasn’t rolled over, but she manages to scoot off her playmat all the time. She bends her knees and then puuuushes. Sort of like a crawl while on her back. It’s not the most elegant mode of transportation, but it gets the job done.
It’s been dinner for three at our house the past few nights. We’ve brought Claire’s high chair out of the attic and she enjoys sitting in it and watching us eat. I even gave her a baby spoon to play with last night. Another few months and she’ll be eating with us, but for now baby, you’ll have to live on “milkshakes.” Besides, with all the insect protein she’s getting from her bug, what more could she need?
