Wish I had a camera

Kaylee's been less interested in her finely pureed baby food and more and more interested in what we've got on our plates. (In fact, I really can't remember the last time I fed her "baby" food.) I'll sit in my chair, and Rae in hers, and Kaylee will bounce between us begging for bites.

I think she got that from Eddie.

Well tonight's dinner was a nice batch of scrambled eggs with cilantro and a side of fresh chorizo cooked with tomatoes, onions and poblano peppers. Not exactly spicy (by Tucson standards) but it does have a little bit of kick to it.

Well, Kaylee wanted some. We tried to placate her with tortillas (she LOVES tortillas), but she just wouldn't take no for an answer. So Rae gave her a little bite.

She chewed it up ... seemed to like it ... looked like she was going in for more ...

Then she stood up, stuck out her tongue, put both hands in her mouth and started raking what little food was left out onto the floor. She hated it so much she wouldn't accept anything else from Rae. She wouldn't even take her cup of water.

Now if we could only find a way to break Eddie of the habit.

Kaylee today: Well-seasoned.

Oh my Bob, that's funny! Poor kid...I have to laugh and feel badly for her at the same time! FYI, when you guys are here, I'm showing Rae my kitchen and then getting out of her way. Nothing bad ever comes out of a kitchen that woman is in.

Well, then, I'll show you the kitchen. No big deal. But it's Rae's chicken pizza that I can't stop talking about. In fact, I don't think you've ever cooked for me. What's up with that? Where's the love, dear brother?
