First Ice Cream Cone

I thought it would be fun to take her to DQ and let her try a soft ice cream. I guess it was fun but not as much as I expected because the concept is still beyond her. As the photos reveal, she wanted to grab the actual ice cream. Her brain isn't ready to grasp the concept that she should hold the cone and gently lick the ice cream.

But she did try to hum along to Waltz Across Texas when I danced with her later. That was a first — a very cute first.

Someday soon I will blog about something other than my granddaughter, but she seems to be in a very cute phase in her development right now, and I do spend the day with her ... and am rather smitten.

She'll get it (oneday). We always did softserve in a cup until they were about 2.5 or 3. I felt like it was more important to learn dexterity of spoon to mouth than licking (and me having to clean up 80% of the icecream off their faces/bodies). Still, what a great memory.

I personally enjoy the posts about your granddaughter. Blogs are for sharing "life" and right now, she's a huge part of yours.

I say, "Share On!"

She is learning well! The only way to enjoy ice cream is to have it all over your face and dripping from your chin. What? No it's not just little girls who do that! Big girls do it too! My kids make me eat my ice cream at home. :o)
Loves pics as ever AC.

Next time try putting Jimmies (sprinkles) on top. She will find those fascinating.

We can't help ourselves when there's a child in the house.
