Our Lucy loves vegetables and fruits and my husband shares a few bites before he fixes his lunch every day. Lucy knows that the yummy food comes before his lunch and there will never, ever be anything given from his plate. The only time she gets food during our mealtime is when our granddaughter is visiting. Lucy takes full advantage of it by positioning herself right below the high hair. Just in case.
Here my husband is giving Lucy a few bites of carrot. She must sit quietly until he decides to give it to her.
I often wonder what she is thinking while she waits.
Finally, she chomps on her carrot
She likes carrots, green beans, broccoli and will eat celery, although I don't think she really likes it. Her favorite snacks by far are bits of apple, especially the tart ones. She sits patiently until my husband says, "That's all." Then she gets up and moves to a more comfortable place.
I have mentioned before the unexpected response our Violet had to the little cloth dolly we gave her. That attachment continues. She wants Dolly with her when she naps now and she sits with her in the early morning as she comes fully awake. I love this photograph because she still looks so much like a baby. That is deceiving. She is far more toddler than baby now.
She surprised (and very much pleased) my son last week. He picked up a super-hero towel. Violet pointed to it and yelled, "Batman!" And indeed, it was Batman. Amazing what goes on in her little mind.
Today's quote is for our elected officials from local officials all the way to the White House.
"The purpose of human life is to serve,
And to show compassion
And the will to help others."
In the continuing Federal Government shutdown, compassion and a will to help others seem lost on our officials. It is heart-warming to see the public step up to help their unemployed friends and neighbors and even those whose identities they do not know. To them we give a big 'THANK YOU'.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK EVERYONE
GIVE A BIT OF YOURSELF
AND HELP OTHERS
