So…finally!! After at least a month of looking hungrily at other folks stuffing food into their mouths, Selena at last got to eat something (cereal) from a spoon. Last night was her first experience, and from the reports I’m getting, does she love it! If she’s like the rest of her family (on both sides), she’s GOT to love to eat and so far it seems that she’s following in the footsteps of the rest of us.

So, here she is, eating her first breakfast of what we call “solids.” Yum Yum. Now for a lifetime of all kinds of good stuff! Wait until she gets to the steak and potatoes and collard greens and roast pork and potato chips and apple cake and watermelon and so on. I know, I named all of her nanna’s favorites. But I’m sure she’ll love these things just as much as the rest of us. (I guess I should feel guilty for not naming more of the really good choices, like oatmeal, beans and carrots. But I’m expecting better things for her in those categories.) Anyway, enjoy, Selena!

On the wall of our kitchen, is a hanging from my cross-stitching days.
Maybe someday I'll hear this poem from the lips of our little granddaughter:

God is great. God is good.
We thank Him for this food.
By His hand, we are fed,
Give us, Lord, our daily bread.

What about macaroni and cheese?? Mmmm Mmmmm Good! Today I noticed a not so yummy change in her diaper. Yay solids!

Is she grabbing the spoon, with eyes wide in anticipation?


Have a wonderful week and may God bless Grandma and mommy!
