adventures in self-feeding

WARNING: if you do not like pictures of kids with food all over their face, you might want to just skip this post and wait for the next one.

josephine usually eats with her fingers and makes a bit of a mess but nothing too awful.  the other night we were eating lentil dal and ned was feeding it to her with a spoon.  she quickly became uninterested and it was only when i suggested we let her feed herself the dal and some yogurt that she dug in.  and, as you can see, made a total, joyous mess.

at this point, she looked down, threw her hands up, and started exclaiming, “what a mess!  what a mess!”

(thanks for the kind comments about the dress.  it’s so nice to have a little creative outlet now and then.  more crafting to come, i hope.)
