Fulfilling his dream

When I was pregnant with T we would talk to E about all the fun things he would be able to do with the baby. He would go along with us but only ever had one question: "Mum, when can I feed the baby yoghurt?"

E became a bit fixated on feeding the baby. I guess it is one of the very few tangible ways an older sibling can truly interact with a baby. He was so into the idea that when he visited me in the hospital after she was born, he asked if he could give her yoghurt yet.

Um, no.

So anyway, now she's 7 months and doesn't appear to have any allergies or intolerances I figured it was OK to give yoghurt a go.

The boy was excited. The spoon was overfilled. T wriggled in anticipation. The spoon hit her nose. The bib received more yoghurt than the baby.

But yoghurt was fed, the occasion was videoed.

E was so proud of himself (and now wants to give her yoghurt every day).

MissM is the same. She was rather thrilled to feed MissL the first time. =)
