Learning about Girls!
It is so much fun learning about the differences between boys and girls. I have learned yet another difference. We have just started 3rd foods (baby foods) with Katie. They have much more texture than she is use to especially the meals which have bits of pasta and rice in them. She is not always receptive to this addition and one of the new things we have just started this week is Lasana. She is not sure of these new food at all. While this is all familiar teritory for me what is not is how much she picks up on her brothers frustration at trying to feed her said food. Steven gets quite irritated that she refuses to eat the Lasana or spits it out when he gives her a bit. She picks up on this frustration and starts crying and then won't eat anything without crying which only frustrates her brother more. The boys never picked up on my frustration but would just continue in there spitting out of food. No bother to them, but Katie gets so upset and crys. I have to go over there and take over feeding her the food and use tricks to kind of hide the taste of the new food, than she eats it and I can go on to feed her the rest of it without any problem. I am having so much fun learning how girls are different.
