If you know Mara, you probably know that she loves to eat. The girl has never held back from letting us know when she's hungry. She tends to be pretty vocal about it, and we've never had problems getting her to eat her share of food.
But now that she's getting older, we've been trying to work out the transition from baby foods to table foods. And it's not going so well!
She eats baby food with no problem. And still loves her formula. But anything 'solid' or with chunks - not so much. We keep trying different things to get her more comfortable with food, and we sometimes have a little success, but then the next time she wants nothing to do with it.
And since she doesn't like to put things in her mouth, she won't pick things up to eat them. She'll grab a cracker...and then just look at it and play with it. It's very odd. She'll stick her fingers in her food, but won't put them in her mouth. She'll hold a spoon, but not put it anywhere near her mouth.
Sometimes I get really worried about it (mostly because everyone tells us how weird it is), but other times I just think she'll figure it out when she's ready. We'll just keep trying things and see what happens. Maybe one day she'll just decide that she wants to eat 'real' food and will do it!
