New plate

I just wanted to show what a great plate my 10-year-old sister made for Kitten as a New Year present. She painted it all by herself thinking about Kitten all the time and carefully deciding which pictures to paint so that Kitten will like it. Isn't it the sweetest thing ever? I am very passionate about hand-made presents if you can't tell :) Plus it gives me a motivation to come up with several interesting things to put in different compartments and not just give her one thing. This was today's snack - blackberries, cookies (apparently in English they are called crisp bread rings but it sounds so unappetizing :) ) and apple slices with raisins.
Oh, and while I am on the topic of eating - Kitten is finally able to feed herself completely independently, not just use a spoon but hold a plate as well (except for soup, which I have to hold since it is liquid) and not make a huge mess. It is so exciting, finally I am able to have a normal meal and she is occupied!


  1. Yay!!! It's awesome!!!! She is so adorable, all grown up and independent, eating on her own like an adult :))

  2. She certainly thinks so! She even pushes me away when I give her the spoon and don't leave immediately :)
