Blueberries, blueberries....

One of Rachel's favourite YouTube videos is this one:

She likes to say, "Blueberries, blueberries..." in a demented voice and then hit her face on anything nearby. She will also sometimes say, "Cucumbers, cucumbers..." or "Cereal, cereal..." or anything else if we don't happen to have blueberries around. We don't often have blueberries around, actually, but we do have blueberry yogurt.

The girls split a blueberry yogurt the other day and they were getting quite silly and creative with it.

I originally started taking pictures to record how well Miriam feeds herself. She is really quite good at it, especially if it is something she finds terribly yummy. I can usually judge how well she liked a meal by how much of it ends up on her lap/on the floor verses how much actually ended up in her tummy.

Rachel decided, though, that Miriam needed some help. Miriam was more than happy to eat off both spoons.


  1. Nice to see pictures with genuine smiles on Rachel's face...those have been rare lately. Miriam also is happy, but that is not so unusual. :o)

  2. That's so funny. As I was watching the video, I was wondering why in the world it was Rachel's favorite. Now I get it.

  3. That video is FUN-NY! Also, have you seen Miriam's eyes? (probably since she's your daughter and all...) Wow!!!
