Life just got that little bit messier when Thea started feeding herself last week. Even as I was taking photos of her devouring her first piece of fruit I was thinking 'I am never going to get that banana out.' (And not really caring, but if anyone does know how I would love to hear from you!) We are all enjoying watching her explore new tastes and textures - squishing banana and avocado through her fingers and sucking on chicken bones. Thea now sits happily at the head of the table and throws her food around while we eat our evening meal without a babe in arms (she is usually back in them again by the time we have finished eating). And with spring fast turning into summer in these parts we have pulled out the picnic blanket again for afternoon tea on the back lawn, now with a happy baby rolling between us all and getting her fingers in the hummus.
