10 months old & already fasting!

A couple of weeks ago, I put my baby girl on a 3-day fast. A Gerber Puffs fast that is. We call them "stars". She gets ecstatic whenever she here's that word. Well, when she was sick, she didn't want to eat anything, but stars. I let her eat as many as she wanted because something was better than nothing (Right moms?!?!). So, after she felt better, I had an ordeal trying to wean her from the stars. So, I decided to not give her any stars for awhile. She would spit out all the other food I gave her. I had to actually put on an apron to guard myself from the baby food attack. One day, I looked like I was wearing an advertisement for a Baby food Spray paint. Anyway, she eventually starting eating other foods again. So, after 3 days of fasting from the stars, I gave in after a crying spell and she was a happy camper (or should I say happy "star" child). Below are some pictures of her getting her beloved stars back.

This is actually her sad face from star withdrawal.

I gave her one star; she can't believe it!

I put lots of stars on her tray. She is overjoyed!!

The fast is officially over!!!

Praise Jesus for 11 months today my little Star lover!
