does she like to feed herself too?!? :giggle oddly enough evie prefers to feed herself - with utensils - gigi on the other hand has to be reminded to use her utensils and really prefers to be fed :scratch

S goes back & forth. when she is really hungry, she just wants me to shovel it in. Once she gets past that point she wants to do it herself. But today she was eating yogurt with her fingers. :shrug

Off to take care of dirty laundry & start a load. :)

Oooo...I like this.
I just put the dishes away that were in the drain sink, and put dirty dishes in the dishwasher. (Can't believe it took me 5 minutes to do that...we had a lot of dishes out. lol)
