The mango were ripe when we were at the store this week and looked super yummy. Thus, Sierra got to try mango this week. It was a hit!
It's so funny introducing new food to her because you give it to her and she opens her mouth up. Then, if it's something she hasn't had before she gets this puzzled, contemplative look on her face. In this case, she like the mango, so after a few bites, she was totally into it. I would bring the spoon close to her mouth and she opens up like a baby bird waiting for mama to drop in a big, juicy worm. Yum!
She's also quite good at communicating when she's finished. The first thing she'll do is try to grab the spoon. If I'm not quick, watch out! She will have blended food item all over her arm. If I don't get the hint, she purses her lips. Last step, if I insist on continuing to try and feed her when she's not in the mood, spitting it all over the place (this also happens if she doesn't like a food!)
