Yum, Yum Goldfish !



Posted by Picasa
It is still so amazing to me that Maggie is eating EVERYTHING now.  Yes, she was the little girl that didn't eat for three days in China, and then didn't want any kind of food near her for months.  I thought she would never eat regular food, much less something crunchy like goldfish.  We all suffered through her crying and pitching fits while I tried to feed her baby food from a spoon and massage her mouth with a nuk brush. It took a lot of tough love moments, but finally she gave in and starting eating.  Then, she started eating pizza, chicken and anything else she could get in her mouth.  It's like she couldn't get enough.

So now, Maggie will sit in her brother's bean bag chair and watch her favorite video, Baby Babble, while she snacks on goldfish.  It is the only time during the day that she is not clingy and will let me away from her sight. She is mesmerized by the video ( and it is great for her speech).

Oh wow Kathy....she has gotten so big...and even more beautiful! Goldfish are one of Sophie's favorite snacks as well:-). Glad to hear things have been resolving...this adoption journey is a long road on many fronts, but one that is SO rewarding and cherished in every step you move forward.

Hugs,
Tami
