Well the time has come for us to start giving Miss Z finger foods. Admittedly, I probably left it a bit later than most (she is almost 8 months now) however since she goes through a rusk in about 5 mins flat and has 4 new teeth emerging simultaneously I figure we may as well!
The problem I have is….what to give her? There is loads to choose from and I just don’t know what to hand over first….A slice of soft chicken? A wedge of cheese? Vegemite toast? An arrowroot biscuit? Its been so long I can’t remember!!!!! Thankfully both himself and my darling Mummy will be here today to help so I won’t have to go through it on my own! Its amazing to think that I’m a 33yr old second time parent and I still call my mummy to ask for advice!! (as John Mayer said so poetically….I don’t know how else to say it, don’t want to see my parents’ go…one generations’ length away from finding life out on my own).
Miss Z’s poor teeth are giving her the blues (she’s currently getting the top 6 all at once poor bugger!) so I’m thinking maybe something cold would be a good option. She has a teething fish thing that we put in the freezer which she loves and Himself has a good laugh at the fact it squeaks because she chews it so hard!
So – what I am asking you people is for suggestions. Hand them over! I’m all ears! What did your little ones like?
