On Puffs, Black Beans and a Self-Feeding Baby

Brystol is a big fan of self-feeding. She's quite the independent little lady, and while she'll still let me feed her most things, she's really enjoying the opportunity to do things on her own. She has a fat little spear-shaped spoon that she's able to get into her mouth. She doesn't really scoop on her own yet, but if I scoop up the gruel, she can get it into her mouth.

Baby puffs are standard around these parts, but Brystol also loves to eat whole black beans. While other beans are still too firm, black beans are soft when served straight out of the can and easy for a baby mouth to mash. They're especially delicious when eaten off your arm or your pants. As a bonus, black beans make a spectacular mess.

No matter what's on the menu, making a mess is key...

... it guarantees a bath in the sink!

    Adorable. We'll have to try black beans ... Tate wants table food rather than any baby food and she's just started feeding herself.

    Love that picture of Miss Brystol in the sink. She's so cute!

    Amanda, she is the cutest thing ever! I love her little round head, and sparkly eyes! I just want to hug her!
