At 13 months, Everly is 100% in the “I’ll do it myself” stage. She’s fearless, adventurous, and determined to do everything Eleanor does.
Wherever Eleanor is….
Everly is 1/2 a step behind…
The 22 months that separate my two girls mean nothing to Everly. If Eleanor can do it, so can she!
Going down the slide? “I’ll do it myself!”
Getting in my car? “I’ll do it myself!”
Coloring? “I’ll do it myself!”
Reading? “I’ll do it myself!”
Stairs? “I’ll do it myself!”
Snack break? “I’ll do it myself!”
Once Everly started solids, she grew weary of spoon-feeding very quickly. She’s pretty much always preferred self-feeding, so I keep a good variety of “Evie approved” snacks on hand. These Gerber Lil’ Beanies are a great on-the-go option.
They’re the right size for little hands, easy to chew, and tasty (yes, I’ve tried)! I throw them in her backpack with some fresh fruit, and we’re set for snack time! It’s hard to tell which she prefers, but I think White Cheddar & Brocolli is the current fave.
Target run? You guessed it, “I’ll do it myself!”
