My Little Foodie

I never thought I would say this but Olivia has become quite the little foodie. For a while there Olivia didn't like solids, or so I thought. At around 6 months old she just wouldn't eat jarred food anymore (she started eating some solids at 4 months) to the point where I got worried and asked her doctor. At one point I thought we would have to see a feeding specialist. Later that week, I tried everything and lo and behold, Olivia is just little Miss Independent and wanted to feed herself. Thus, baby led weaning began.  Ever since, she has eaten pretty much anything we give her as long as she can feed herself. Her favorites include yogurt, pears, pasta, carrots, corn and sweet potatoes. The only way I can get Olivia to allow me to feed her is if she is feeding herself in between bites. She will let me feed her yogurt whether there is food in front of her or not though. It is always my go-to when I want to make sure she eats. This morning was a different story. She didn't eat as much as she normally does and after many, many attempts I gave up and put the rest of the yogurt back in the fridge and took her out of the high chair. As I was cleaning her high chair I looked over and noticed that Olivia was trying to open the fridge. It was hilarious! She was banging on the fridge and trying to pull the door open with little grunts and all. I guess she wasn't done with her yogurt after all. I just love this kid.
