:: Fork Fed ::

This past week has been pretty difficult with Analise as she was fighting a virus.  We took her to the doctor yesterday and found out she has Parvovirus, otherwise known as fifth disease or slap cheek(not the kind that dogs get).  In short, it is a virus that made her pretty miserable for the past week.  All she wanted was to snuggle and cry on my shoulder.  It got old quick.  The virus make her achy, tired, whiney, nauseous, and ended with a rash on her cheeks and upper body.  Apparently once the rash arrives, they are no longer contagious.  Strange.  On top of that, she has been teething...two teeth coming in at once.  Today was a better day.

All of that to say, despite the difficult week, there have been moments of joy and laughter.  This week Analise decided that she wanted to feed herself with her fork.  Tonight she ate a whole bowl of avocados and cottage cheese with a fork.  It made for some funny pictures.  Here is a string of pics of her with her fork.

I love the nose-wrinkle. It helps the fork hit the target. Too cute!

I'm glad she's feeling a little better... I have to know, what does the rest of her bib say? "When God created me..."
