Green beans are GROSS!

Uhhhhhhh.... Guess who DOES NOT like green beans!!
These faces she is making are hilarious to me.  She is like, "Ummm, hello?  This is NOT applesauce, nor bananas!  Get that green stuff AWAY from me."

And then life perks up for my little 7 month old.  (By the way, she turned 7 months yesterday!!)  She got a MumMum.
Staci turned me onto MumMums after I decided I didn't think I could EVER tolerate another Biter Biscuit for my little gumming babies.  That crap is like liquid concrete on their faces.  It is H-E Double hockey sticks to get off!  
But MumMums... they are cool!  ANd Gabbi just seems to love them.  
I didn't think the kid would ever start using her hands, but now she has, and she is all about little finger feeding crackers.  It is funny, because now Ellie, naturally, has to have all those crackers too, and cannot watch Gabbi eat baby food without thinking she needs to eat a few spoonfuls too.  She didn't need more than one taste of these nasty green beans though. 
This little girl is such a delight.  What would we do without her?!  She is so pleasant and special!  
Well, off to beddy bye.  We have a big event tomorrow to help my long toed friend, Cindy, celebrate publishing of another 4 books.  Go see Alphakidz.com. This year's theme is a 50's bash.   If you are in town, come on out to the convention center in West Monroe.  We will be the fruitloops in "Mel's Diner".  And I will be the one on skates!

OH MY, i can tell she fer sure didn't like those green beans...but really...who could eat those nasty things! I was a lil surprised that you didn't have a pic of Ellie when she had to just taste them, Cause i know it was a kodak moment!

Belinda said...

OH MY tooo cute!! My son loved green beans and squash in the baby food aisle...now at 16 he will not touch a vegetable of any kind..french fries if you consider that a vegetable.. we have to MAKE him eat corn..
SO glad your back and thanks again for sharing these sweeties with us "strangers".

Love how Gabbie is pointing at her mouth in that one picture like "GET THAT NASTINESS OUT OF MY MOUTH"!

Mindy said...

I love those expressions & smiles! What a Delight!!!!!!!!!!

Can't wait to see the post about you on skates! Have fun!!!!!!!!

Deb said...

So glad to see you back.........I just kept checking. In my heart I knew you'd be regaling us all with your tales and humor.

I even have my husband reading, he identifies with Todd, especially the childproofing efforts!!!!

Love to see the girls and really missed them. I am amazed at how I identified with someone I've never met in person and have been following you all since Caringbridge days!

Stephanie said...

Gabby is too cute! I'm so glad that you allow her to eat crackers. I love me some messy baby. My friend refuses to allow Chloe to eat anything messy! I bought one of those mesh bags with the handle for her. She won't let her have it because it's messy. Now I save all of the messy stuff for Aunt Stephie's house. I don't even bother sending it home with her. That's what kitchen sinks are for, right? We'll just have lots of messy fun while she's here.

Do they still make the garden vegetable choice of baby food? Because my boys made some priceless faces when they ate that stuff! It has a variety of veggies in it, including spinach. Yum, yum...

She'll get used to the beans. Just feed her the green beans first, then follow with the fruit. And keep takin' those pics! LOL

I agree! Green beans "are gross!"

Nannyninny said...

Your girls have the cutest expressions and look so happy.

Hope you didn't have bad weather in your area last night.

Liloia Family said...

My kids never liked the "green" when they were babies...LOL. I love that face Gabbi is making. She is so precious!! It's funny that Ellie wants what Gabbi has. Have a great weekend.

Don't make that poor baby eat pureed green beans. PEAS! Peas are the way to go.

She is SUPER cute! So much personality in that sweet face!

Lindsay said...

I hope the diner went well last night and I hope the rain held off for Mo in skates!! I need to see that! Did Ellie like green beans? All Bowen would eat for dinner was green beans. I was always afraid she was going to turn that green tint (you know how babies turn orange or green when they eat too many greens or carrots). Those faces Gabbi is making are hilarious. And, oh, yeah.....the heck involved getting those biter biscuits off! Lovin that you're back!

Melissa said...

I really want to take the kids to alphafest this year. I thought about the spring market, but since there is a no strollers rule, I can't bring myself to endure the torture. So, maybe I'll see you there!

Robin said...

oK...went back and got all caught up. I am so glad you are back. Time to get all mel diner fied!!!

sportzmom said...

Green beans are yucky...unless they are fried and have dipping sauce on the side! The event looks like a lot of fun. I wish I lived in the area! Be careful on the skates!

Sue said...

Green Beans were never a fav. of my girls years and years ago. It must be something about that green color or the sweetness of the fruit that they do so love. Oh well, my philosophy was then and still is let them eat what they like; we do :)

RADstitches said...

One question for ya.. Did YOU try those green beans!?!? LOL Some of those things make my gag reflexes kick in just smelling them! I don't blame a sista one bit for not liking them! I mean.. when a girl can have nana's, peaches or anything else for that fact WHY BOTHER!!?!?

MHall62 said...

Gabbi's little outfit is so cute and those shoes are ADORABLE!! Thanks for sharing.

Kelly said...

SOOOOO Cute! I don't blame her on not liking the green beans. I feel the same way! Hey Mo...I sent you an email...I hope you got it!?? I've been having some email problems lately so please let me know if it didn't come through.

Have a great weekend!!

Sara G said...

Such a cutie pie!!
She might learn to like green beans when they aren't strained. My sons loved picking up pieces of cooked, cooled green beans when they started on the finger foods.

Pepper said...

OMG!!! I am SO GLAD you are back. I have checked and checked your site. I even called Dawn Pierce and said, what is up? I need my Mo fix. My internet has been down for about 4-5 days or I would have been on here before now. I was surprised when you said something about it being two weeks. It felt like a month. Girls look cute as ever. WOO HOO!! You are back.

Missy said...

Well I can't say that I blame Gabbi girl, those things are nassy and I don't mean Ellie's nassy either lol... Have you tasted them?? They are gross rofl!

I need to email you, about vacation spots in Gulf Shores. We stayed at the Beach Club last year and loved it..

Oh go and check out my pics I posted ony my blog.
I posted one of my Livi Lu just for you carrying her cell phone and cell ph holder around. We don't leave home without it

I always thought when my kids were babies that the green beans smelled like a dirty ashtray. I don't think they look or smell good at all.

As long as you are back logging on the scrapbooking tutorial, I didn't even get started on the Christmas one. It is still sitting in the original box beside the computer/tv area. Please send help!

I don't blame her - smart girl - green beans are yucky!

Kathryn said...

Baby food green beans are gah-rooosssss! Either drip a little bacon grease in there, or go right to the baby food peas. Oh, our children loved those peas! And, watch out when you get to the carrots. Our babies would growl at us if we weren't shoveling those in quickly enough to suit them.

Our children did love steamed green beans when they were old enough to hold them and eat them.

Denise said...

Gabbi Lou is so cute...you can tell she is a delight...always smiling. Precious, Precious, Girls. I so enjoy checking in everyday.

Maria said...

So glad to see you back. Missed my dose of MoJoy! God bless your family. :)

Cherry said...

Renee said...

Look at all that hair that girly is getting!!! Way to go Gabbi Lou.

PS--It's OK Gabbi--I don't like green beans either.

Greg said...

I was sooo happy to find you back! I Love your family and originally found Jake and you through friends whose daughter had hepatoblastoma. My only problem is that I'm registered under my husband's name, so I feel kind of funny leaving comments. Your kids look beautiful in their white dresses! -jen in MI

breanna said...

gabbi's getting big...I love the CUTE shoes she can wear now!! Elijah refused to eat any vegetable when he was a baby, so I mixed bananas with everything, and he ate it up! I guess it paid off because he likes them now, even broccoli!

crazyfrog said...

OMG--I was going mad about not getting my nightly fix of Gabbi and Ellie....Sorry some folks were being rude about whatever.
Mel, you have BEAUTIFUL PRECIOUS Girls. Take care and God Bless!!

Jeanie said...

The picture of Gabbi eating her green beans is adorable. So happy that you are back posting. You were missed.

Nascar88_20 said...

I wasn't going to comment, but since when I looked at the clock while reading tonight, and it was 11:11, I guess a certain little sweet Jake was telling me to send his Aunt Mo some bloggie props.

Your pics of Gabby and the green beans brought back memories. The only thing worse than green beans, is baby food spinach.

Gabby is getting cuter every day and Ellie is adorable. Thanks again for bringing back your blog.
