Banana Pudding

"Hey, Mom, did you know these drawers have stuff in them?!"
 The latest development on the eating front... must feed herself.  Mom wants to feed me with a spoon?  Nope.  Mom wants to put bites of food into my mouth for me?  Not gonna happen.  She must do it by herself this week, so that pretty much means that baby food is over.  I don't know if she'll willingly eat baby food in the future (which figures, since I just bought $15 worth), but for now she's "little miss do-it-myself" (which my mom will find fitting since I've always been that way, too).  So, independent feeding can be messy.  She's actually pretty great at it, but some things just can't be done properly without a bit of mess.  For instance, banana pudding.  It's safe to say she's a fan.  She'll lick the spoon clean, but hasn't figured out to dip the spoon back into the food for more.  So, she holds the spoon in one hand and eats fistfuls of pudding with the other.  Yum. 
 This girl.  She thinks it so funny to stick her tongue out and make raspberry noises.  Spit flies and it makes a silly noise and she will do it until her face is red and she's running out of breath. 

 In more grown up news... we are continuing our quest to becomes wine drinkers.  Please note: we did not drink all of this wine by ourselves.  We had help :) We did try it all though. 
 First up, this red wine blend.  The guy at the store thought I might like it.  He was wrong.  Two thumbs down. 
Next up, Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon.  Ehh, it was okay.  I wouldn't buy it again.  
The real winner so far is this.  I had my doubts when it was suggested, but it is by far my favorite that we've tried up to this point.  It is Director's Cut Cabernet Sauvignon and I'm a fan.  Two thumbs up.
