Messy Baby

So much of my parenting experience go like this... What used to make no sense to me what so ever now seems like second nature. For example, I always used to wonder why parents let their babies make a total mess why they were eating. I couldn't figure out why on earth would someone condone such a disaster. My perspective has changed...I love watching Samuel have at his food. I think it is hilarious and he is so interested in the entire experience. It is so worth the mess.

I love that second to last picture--his expression is priceless! He is growing up so much... it's so fun to see him having such a ball with his food.

These pictures cracked me up. I totally hear you on letting your kids make a mess.

I remember when I was a nanny and the mother asked me how I kept her kid so clean all day. I remember thinking, "duh. You keep the messy stuff away and wash her hands and face all day." A no-brainer, right?

Then I had kids of my own and I realized the more messy the more fun. And the more fun, the better. You can always wash a face/shirt/pudgy hand. And that is how they learn. they won't always be this messy. (boo...)

Cute post.

Ash...He is so darling! And growing so fast. I am trying to get into the blog stuff but it sure isn't as fun when you don't have baby to show off.
