(By Aunt Laura):
Well, as requested by Hannah and Leah they indulged in mixed vegetables for dinner (which for those of you who don't know they are a delightful orange color).
But to go back a step, it gets very serious if you do not shovel the correct amount of food at a rapid pace into their mouths. Well, with feeding 2 very messy eaters- this task is hard to accomplish without a couple seconds in between where they are not eating, spitting food out, or swallowing. These couple seconds is just the right amount of time to explore.
Hannah decided to explore a DOT of mixed vegetables today that I accidentally let spill on her tray in front of the bowl of food. As I try to feed a very hungry (AKA ANGRY Leah) Hannah was head butting her highchair in between bites trying her hardest to get this orange dot of veggies that wasn't any bigger than a pinky fingernail, but to her it was the Taj Mahal of all dots and she was going to get it or her day would not have been complete. Needless to say, I had to clean the dot up because she no longer was concentrating on eating her food. I guess they are learning at a very young age that you always want what you can't have. This story is probably more interesting to those who could have seen this. How can we put words to such cuteness. Personally, I think it's pretty impossible.
But, to end this. Maybe Hannah was interested in the dot because of it's color. She's learning to be an Auburn fan at a young age, huh?
