Typical Female

Moana went down for her morning nap sort of early today. Just a few minutes after I left the room she started wailing, and when I went back in to check on her, I found that she was upset because she had rolled herself over onto her tummy... so like a good mom I rolled her back over, gave her a little kiss on the cheek, replaced her dollie in her arms, and all was well in her world.

I didn't hear another peep out of her, but about an hour later (after finishing my Power Yoga for Athletes DVD) I went in to check on her. This is what I found. Notice her 'pillow'.

Not sure why being on her tummy was unacceptable the first time she rolled herself over yet perfectly acceptable the second time? Typical female I guess.

And here's a little product review for all you moms... I guess I should know what it's called before I go raving about it, but I can't remember... And since nobody's paying me to talk about it, I don't feel too guilty about not calling the product by name. Anyway, it's a little teething food sucker thing... it's got a little handle and a mesh bag that you can put food in for baby to suck or munch on without the potential for choking on it.

Yesterday afternoon I cut off a slice of the pear I was eating and put in in the mesh bag for Moana. And guess who's eyes lit up like little lightbulbs while chewing on the thing? There was some serious munching going on.

Oh yes! My kids loved that mesh thingy...it got gross after awhile but TONS of fun! Glad Moana loved the pears!:))

We have one of those food holder thingys too. I totally forgot it so I think I'm going to have to pull it out! On a completely different note, I just read your comment on Dear Gherkin...the whole time I was reading her post I was thinking about that darn filet-o-fish commercial. Ryan and I are ALWAYS singing that stupid song!

We use the mesh thing too...bananas get a bit messy and gooey but the boys liked using them.

Interesting. I haven't seen that teethy thing before. I'll have to look for one. Where did you get it?

I keep meaning to get that mesh thing and then forget everytime we go to babies r us. Another friend swears by it as well.

For some reason, Elena refused to use the mesh thing. I know that most babies LOVE them, though.

How funny - I was just skyping with one of my best friends the other day and she showed me exactly the same thing. I thought it was a really great idea and was enthused enough that when I mentioned it to my boss (who has two kids) he looked at me and said that if I was getting excited over something like this it meant I probably should be having my own baby - ummm, not quite yet! :) Glad Moana likes fruit. I am sure there is a good variety in Hawaii!
