Happy When Eating

Happy When Eating

This little girl is happy most of the time, but especially when she is eating. It’s been so fun to watch her try certain foods for the first time and I especially love that she is now able to sit with us at the dinner table while also enjoying her own little space thanks to this high chair from @be_mindful_kids.
