the highchair.

by Joanna

We finally got a highchair for Elsie! Mind you, this is not to say we are starting her on solids yet, because we are not. We plan to do Baby Led Weaning, and right now it seems like it will be quite some time before Elsie is ready for “real” food. Rather, the highchair is a result of my belief that it’s terribly important for her to be included in the family mealtime as early as possible. For the last couple of months that has meant that one of us has held her in our laps, but that can be a little difficult depending on what we’re eating for dinner. So now she gets to sit and watch us eat, coo at us, flirt with her daddy, and play with her toys. Plus she’s just so CUTE sitting up in her big chair.
