Sleeping Beauty


Sleeping Beauty
Originally uploaded by sammi's mom
Samantha, sleeping at my company picnic today. She was very social, but kept trying to kiss and hug the other kids that were there. Actually, she nearly knocked down the CEO's daughter (who is the same age) while trying to hug her. Not the way to get a raise. :-)

True to form, Sammi wouldn't eat anything at the picnic. She's in this stage right now where nothing can pass through her lips except waffles, cookies, yogurt, chicken nuggets, goldfish and hummus sandwiches. Nothing else even gets a chance. She clamps her mouth shut, shakes her head, puts a very contrary little look on her face, and says, "nooooo." It's so exciting when we can get her to open her mouth long enough to put some new food in. Most of the time, though, she spits it right back out again. Occasionally, as with the spaghetti-o's I gave her the other day, she'll realize that she actually likes something. Thank goodness for daily vitamins...

Hummus sandwiches?? That is funny! I'll have to try that with my very picky eater that I have as well. Lately...samething, "the clamp down and spit out if I get something in there".

Your daughter is adorable!

I probably shouldn't admit this but when Ryker is in one of his moods and refuses to eat, I will force a taste in. He immediately spits it out. Then I do it again and he usually goes, oh! not bad! I'll have anoth"er bite!"

It sounds as though she had a great time. I have enjoyed reading your blog and seeing her smiling face.
