Now she should coach all those people who have to use the "training chopsticks"!! (In some chinese restaurants I have been to, they had those, with rubberband wrapped around at the end of the sticks with folded papers in between...)

You are raising your daughter right GB... she is eating her vegetables, too!!
Thanks for yet another beautiful Rachel shot!! We never get tired of seeing your PLT!!

Yeah she really does love her veggies. She loves her fruits too. At this meal she also ate tofu which I was happy to see she tried and seemed to like.

You and your wife are doing the right thing exposing your daughter to a wide variety of foods. Has she had eggs yet?

Her chopstick technique is flawless! That's just how I use them.

Yeah eggs were one of the first solid foods we gave her. The Dr. recommended scrambled eggs as a finger food so she could learn dexterity.

She eats very healthy for the most part. We try to keep the sweets and junk away from her, but with both sets of grandparents living close by that can be a challenge

Grandparents provide balance. Everyone needs a little sweetness in their lives.

GB, she's adorable! Have you started checking out nunneries yet? Oh, and don't ever let her taste a truffle (the 'shroom kind), or your budget will be shot!

Yes, she gets both of those qualities from her mother.
