Foodie Girl

After the birth of Mason, all Kristen wanted was a big juicy cheeseburger from Five Guys. Lyra had no interest in her minutes old cousin, she was all about the cheeseburger. She tracked it with her eyes as Kris lifted it to her mouth. All meals are torturous for Lyra. She is sure that all table food was meant for her. I've had 3, count them, 3 accidents at restaurants due to a quick hand and a tired mother. Two drinks and an entire cup of soup in my lap.

While my other kids took forever to have any interest in food, I guessed it would be different with the foodie girl. I decided to start with the ever loving rice cereal about 2 weeks ago. Her whole body shook with excitement. She downed it in about 5 minutes flat, soon we were on to bananas, pears, apples and sweet potatoes. I know I introduced way too many things too soon but this kid is out of her mind in love with food. Really, who can blame her?

Although I've resisted giving her a cheeseburger yet, the picture above was snapped after Jorge offered her a saltine, pure bliss.

Did you have any baby foodies at your house? Were they eating cheeseburgers by 8 months?

I've got a foodie too! Her favorite thing to eat is lettuce. Loves it! I figured I'm even son is so picky, and his sister will eat anything.

I read this and I must say that I'm thankful that my lil Nash is a "foodie" too. He sees the spoon & his eyes get as big as his belly. He too shakes & giggles with excitement! He's been eating rice cereal for about 6 weeks now... for the last month he eats oatmeal, pears, applesauce, baby meats, green beans and prunes...yes...prunes.. 3 square meals a day. He love it all! Give it a little more time & he too will be wanting to scarf down a cheeseburger!
