Self Feeding Part 3



Sophie the macaroni masticator. She's gotten that pincer grasp down alright, though we're clearly not going to be writing in an etiquette forum just yet.

She's growing so quickly, and I am glad that I choose this time to be a full time mom. The transformation of my sleepy bitty baby into a grunting growling wookie to a fierecely independent little girl is taking place at such a rapid rate that if you blink you miss it. I am really glad I chose to blog it because only by going back to my old posts do I remember what she could or could not do just a few short months ago.

My current aiyi is a lovely lady who adores Sophie and she is getting very well trained by my mom, and I am looking for a second aiyi to supplement. Once I get a system of 2 aiyis going, then I will be going back to work. I don't know which job I will do yet, but in principle, I am pretty convinced that I want to go back to work WHEN the system of childcare is in place. But not before then. I don't know how long that will take, but the employer that hires me will have to understand that my family comes first, otherwise I can't accept the job.

In theory, it's all pretty simple. But of course the nights are reserved for the angsting...

Sophie's face is really elongating and she doesn't look like a chubby cheeked baby anymore but a nice long, lean toddler. We sure do miss her.
