Master eater

For a nine-month-old, my daughter is an incredible eater. We don’t mash up her food; she just eats whatever we eat. She doesn’t like to be fed and much prefers to feed herself. It takes some concentration but her fingers are able to pick up just about anything, however small – and get some of it into her mouth.

It’s quite wonderful to watch and makes me excited about the future! Until now I’ve been the only one in my household with adventurous tastes as far as food is concerned. I’m looking forward to having an eating buddy, someone whom I can introduce to the gastronomically good things in life 🙂  #NaPoWriMo

my babe, you’re a master eater
already feasting on chips and pizza
today again you’re eating daal and rice
grain by grain, each morsel delights
there are very few things that you don’t like
and even if you don’t, you’ll try anything twice

my dear, you’re a master eater
already feasting on chips and pizza
you always feed yourself and you’re so cute
when you bite off more than you can chew
you love cashews and okra and sriracha too
there aren’t many babies who eat like you

my love, you’re a master eater
already feasting on chips and pizza
you eat everything, you’re not choosey
you wear a moustache made of smoothie
it makes me so proud and so goofy
I just can’t wait to feed you sushi

my babe, you’re a master eater
already feasting on chips and pizza
yes you, you’re a master eater
already feasting on chips and pizza
