My daughter has a very strict eating schedule. She is exactly like her mother. When she is hungry, everyone better get out of the way and let her eat! If not, all hell breaks loose. You can imagine my surprise when she didn't finish her afternoon meal today.
Emma will be 5 months old in a little over a week and has been drinking 2 bottles in the morning, eating a meal (cereal and some baby food) in the afternoon, and 2 more bottles in the evening for about 3 weeks. This is her routine, and she never deviates from it. However, she must be going through a growth spurt at the moment because she's been sleeping more than usual. I know she's sleepy, but I never expected her to fall asleep in her high chair... while eating.
The cutest part? Her eyes were closed, and she appeared to be asleep, but she continued to open her mouth for more "bites". Again, she's just like her mother. I can just imagine what she was thinking.... "Soooo sleepy... sooooo sleepy... but... must... keep... eating...mmmm...applesauce....mmmm...." Alas, she had to give up sometime.
She is so cute. I just wiped the applesauce debris from her chubby cheeks and let her sleep.
