Where's The Tail?

Every year it seems that Tyler becomes more interested and involved in the holidays. With all the talk about Thanksgiving and the symbols that represent it, he was very eager to see the turkey. He even accompanied his dad to the store to purchase the frozen bird and felt the need to explain to me what the turkey was for. Boy would he soon be disappointed!

He woke up good and early Thanksgiving morning so he could help Dad with preparing the meal. While Bailey and I snuggled in bed, they were busy making lots of goodies for our dinner. When it came time for the turkey, Tyler just had to jump in and help!
After peeking into the cooker, Tyler's first response was "Where is the tail?" Which was then followed by "There's no head! What happened to the Turkey's head?" Both of these questions led to a very interesting conversation about turkeys and our dinner.

I had to get a picture of the two of them together for Bailey's first Thanksgiving. I love how she had to hold onto Tyler's collar for the picture.

Even though it was only the 4 of us this year, we still managed to have quite the spread of food.
For a child that normally eats very little for dinner, Tyler was very excited to dig into his turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving!! :-)

Yuck, Yuck, Yuck!! 11-11-11

Bailey has reached that all important 6 month milestone and is now able to give those taste buds a workout on something other then her plastic toys. She was very eager upon entering her highchair, but very quickly changed her mind!

The first bite of rice cereal came back out of her month faster then it went in! Surprisingly, she opened right up for bite number 2 and even tried to help, but in the end this attempt had the same results.

With a little help from big brother Tyler I was able to attempt bite number 3, then she became wise to our tricks and decided opening her mouth wasn't going to happen.

In the end, I had a very messy and unhappy 6 month old. According to the Gerber website, it could take up to 10 attempts to get her to eat. I sure hope not!!
