The need for speed!
Elizabeth's new favorite game is chase. Whether she's chasing the dog or me or having me chase her, it's all hilariously funny to her. She'll stop mid-chase and dissolve into giggles. She also likes to play a variation on my sisters' and my old game of "Oops, I'm Sorry." She goes one way around the downstairs and expects her co-player to go the other. When she sees the co-player, she bursts out into laughter.
I'm ready to toss all the baby feeding manuals that say that babies prefer bland foods. Elizabeth has decided that nice bland bananas are no longer delicious. When bananas come near her, she clamps her lips shut and turns her head away. She prefers things like black bean soup, applesauce with cinnamon, and corn chowder. We tried her on the corn chowder tonight and she scarfed down almost an entire bowl replete with black pepper and thyme. She looked interested in her dad's asiago peppercorn bread, but both LB and I thought that the bread was a little too chewy for her four teeth.
In New Baby News, my doctor thinks he's probably going to come early like his big sister did. I'm okay with that as there isn't much I can think of to recommend about being pregnant in Georgia in the summertime...provided he doesn't come till after Saturday afternoon. We're having company then and I'm looking forward to seeing them!
