First Afternoon Snack

I let Harper have her first afternoon snack finally - some puffs and juice
We are still working on the coordination it takes to get the puffs from hand to mouth! She is great at grabbing them and putting it to her mouth - but letting those puffs out of her tight grip can be a little tricky!
Dawson is SO happy about that because that means she drops a lot of puffs in the process and he thinks they are MIGHTY tasty! Maybe this baby isn't so bad after all!
Hey - these are pretty good! Why are you just now telling me about this?
Hey mom? Can we have a snack EVERY day??? And how about maybe those Oreos we see you eating???

Just like when I was pregnant a few months behind you, I look to your blog to know what's next. I actually had no idea that dry cereal was so close! It is amazing to me how quickly they develop and change!

Taylor said...

Awww...she is growing up way too fast! Which I know is news to you, ha! I remember the puff days and Grace couldn't get enough of them either!!

Kim said...

I like your high chair, what kind is it?

The Niemeyer Nest said...

Very cute! Evie likes the puffs too. She also LOVES yogurt melts cut or broken in half. Can't get her to drink much out of her cup but she thinks it is really fun to play with. Love the pictures!

So sweet!

That's so cute. Our Trixie Lulu can't wait until DD starts eating--she is always searching for dropped food.

We have started DD on cereal--her pediatrician wanted her to get used to eating between 4-6 months, b/c at 6 months she starts getting 3 meals of baby food a day! She's growing up so fast.

The Riedel Family said...

I know how much my son enjoyed Puffs! I would find myself snacking on them too sometimes! Oops! :)

Summer said...

You have to love the puffs! I love the last pic... both of your babies look like they loved their snack...

Courtney said...

She makes the cutest expressions!

Shayla said...

CUTE!!!! Harper is such a model!!!

those puffs are the best haha :)

Your doggie is SO cute :)

Vera said...

I just realized one of the reasons I love reading your blog so much... it brings back SO many memories of my life with my first daughter - I really feel like I'm reliving that part of my life! Harper is absolutely precious and I love that you cherish every moment and milestone with her. Now I just wonder if your life will be as hectic and disorderly as mine became after baby #2 came along ha! (Not to scare you, though, because I'm sure it had more to do with the fact that I also became a working mom between #1 and #2).

Melanieshea said...

Aww!!! So sweet!!!

capperson said...

Haha that is too cute. Exspecially that last pic of both of them.

Lindsay Willman said...

Kelly, I love your high chair! We're in the market for one and I want one that looks nice, not a hunk of plastic. Do you recommend it? Thanks, Lindsay

A Wedding Story said...

The puffs aren't that bad actually! Hehe! Glad Dawson has a new hobby :)

Angry Julie Monday said...

Very cute!!! We loved puffs..and dogs are great crumb catchers!

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

Too cute!

julie & joe said...

The last pic is so cute! I think you need to frame it. Snack time is fun when they are so little.

Jennifer Poppy said...

Our yorkie feels the same way about our baby:) love the snack time "leftovers."

Ashlee McCrary said...

Ohhhh this makes me think of when my little one was at that stage! Rylie had those exact pj's & that same exact sippy cup was her first one she ever drank from! Ahh memories! lol

Angela said...

Love it! Don't worry, Dawson will grow to love her because he has now learned that they love to drop food! ha!
My nephew does it on purpose now....the thinks that it is so funny. The dogs get more than he does. I am sure my little one will be feeding our dogs soon!

Mel said...

Oh Kelly, she is just getting too big. Of course she also gets prettier and prettier every day too! You and Scott must be on Cloud 9!

Squeeze that angel for me!
Mel

Kristin Kneupper said...

I hope that little Harper doesn't start throwing her sippy cup at your furry little angel (Dawson)! I only say that because my son does it... and we have a chihuahua, ouch!

Your blog is so wonderful and Harper is BEYOND adorable!!

Myra said...

Ridley's loving his puffs! We're practicing a lot with them. He gets more on the floor than in his mouth, but he's doing really well with them.

Our babies are growing up way too fast! :)

Harper is just totally precious...as always!

Claire said...

Such a cutie, as ever.

Ana said...

SO cute!!! I'm all about those oreos too!

Jennifer said...

I bet Dawson thinks his life just got even better!Haha!
Those puffs are a great little snack for Harper!

Kathy said...

WOW she had grown!!!!

It has been a while since I have been blogging and loved catching up!! Stop by and catch up with me....Kathy

Marci @ All Things Wonderful said...

So Sweet!

Jenn Bull said...

We never realized how much food our daughter dropped on the floor until we boarded our dogs and found peas everywhere! That's why we have dogs...to clean up after the baby!

Amy said...

I'm a big fan of the puffs myself and I'm 33 years old!

Jenna said...

So cute! We have milk and oreos for our snack today!!!

Paige said...

Adorable photos!! Puffs are lifesavers sometimes too!!

Marianne said...

Amazing how quick they grow up. Look at her sitting there feeding herself and using a sippy cup...time sure flies!

Lianna Knight said...

I love seeing her sweet little hands try to pick up those treats :) So precious!

And I LOVE the College Day Family photo in the post below...SO ADORABLE!!

Life with my sweeties said...

Love it!!

Jen said...

Uhhmmm I have a confession to make...I love eating those puffs. I buy them and eat them myself sometimes...low in calories and tasty, what more could a girl want.

I love the picture of Haper and Dawson. Both look so cute and you can just tell that Dawson is loving getting an extra little treat here and there.

Beth said...

What I noticed is how much hair Harper is getting! :-) My grand-daughter, Grace, loves those puffs too as well as graham crackers.

Our dog Kona decided Grace was wonderful after she dropped lots of puffs and graham crackers for her.

Melissa from the Blue House said...

So cute! Don't you love the look on their little faces when they're experiencing something new for the first time?

Lauren said...

oh my goodness, everytime you mention Dawson's name I crack up! I think that is the most hilarious name! ...my uncle's name is Dawson and since everyone in the family has a nickname, he needed one too. Dawson isn't an easy name to find a nickname for so he is now "noswad" (like nose-wad) bc of dawson backwards...anyway, i dont comment alot, but i thought you might find that kinda funny :)

noahandlylasmommi said...

She has the sweetest little face.

Marlana said...

How sweet! I love the first picture with one hand on the sippy and one about to grab the puff. :)

Raina's Retreat said...

I love the pics! Dogs are great to have around with babies! My Meri loves puffs but she can't seem to release it to her mouth either, she just slobbers all over it. Makes a fun mess for me:P

Donna said...

Bless Dawson's heart. He has found his calling in life,,,cleaning up after Harper. Wait until she learns to feed him. One for Dawson, one for Harper. My sister shared dog biscuits with the dog like that. Such cute photos!
Keeping you in my heart in Ga.
Donna

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

Too cute! Our dogs are the vacuum cleaners in this house!

Lauren Kelly said...

So cute, she is just getting so big, Kelly!!!! I know you don't want to hear that, but my friend, your baby girl is growing up :)

Karo said...

Isn't it just the sweetest thing when they start eating "real" food?? Harper is just adorable.

blessedmomto7 said...

Harper looks SO grown up in that 4th picture! BIG GIRL AND HER PUFFS!

The Stain Family said...

Oh, puffs are the best! And little outfits with footies are too!!

Kelly said...

I bet Dawson will be glad when snacktime includes an Oreo too.

Patty said...

I am babysitting my great nephew who is 14 months old this weekend and I am feeding him the same snacks. He loves those and cheerios and mashed potatoes. Harper is so cute in her jammies and her cute bow!!
Happy Labor Day!
Blessings,
Patty

sjm4him said...

SO CUTE!!! Love the pic of the 2 of them at the end...esp. Dawson's look on his face. The babies in the nursery love puffs, and my niece did too at Harper's age. My bro and sis in law fed her before they ate and then gave her puffs while they ate to keep her occupied. Kinda like the modern day version of dry cheerios...which is what I guess I had growing up! Happy Labor Day! :)

momMYsliceoflife said...

Aww! Both of your babies look like they are loving the new snack time. London loves her snack time too! We started with those puffs and now she usually has a sliced banana or pear. They grow up soooo fast!

Taking Heart said...

Those puffs are so easy and fun... be prepared to find them in her diaper... amongst other creative places!

chandelier magic beach house said...

Every photo is adorable but the last photo is the best I've seen in a looooong time. I love it.

Marsha - my word verification for this was oogle!! Pretty fitting for an oreo -
