{the ordinary moments} messy faces

You have to love how meal times for babies are so multi-scensory.
Chew it for a bit.
Spit it out.
Have a look.
Squish it through your fingers.
Put it back in your mouth again.
Give it another chew.
Maybe smear some on your face.
Swallow a bit.
Dribble a bit.

I can't be the only one who loves a messy baby face.


  1. And of course the all important throw it on the floor step! Or my Elma's personal favourite; patting any part of Mummy that comes within reach with a coating of smushed dinner. Love it!

  2. I can't believe Jobey is going to be at this stage in a few weeks! I'm not very good with the mess but know it's such an important part of them learning about food! x

  3. My first son was some weird, clean baby, roll on four years and our second son does all the above, but we love it! I think he loves nearly all food because he eats in this way. : )

  4. Oh goodness I still take photo's of my wee man's messy faces as he is still very good at making them!

  5. Ive countless photos of Moo and Thor with messy faces! Such a lovely photo x

  6. I love a messy baby face too. Although I am sad about LL growing up and I didn't really want to start the weaning stage, I am starting to look forward to feeding her each day and getting her to try new things. She has gone up to two meals a day today! Sob! x

  7. If only we could get away with it as adults hey? :-)
    I didn't realise how long the beautiful girls eyelashes are! You can really notice them in this photo :-) x

  8. Gorgeous! I do love watching Ted eat he pulls the funniest faces! :) Just got the same bib but in orange and they are great! Except he eats from it when hes done with his food...gross! xx

  9. Such a cute picture. My husband can't stand watching Eva squishing her food and smearing it all over her face. For me, I know it's a phase that will be over all too quickly and before I know it she'll be answering back, fighting with her brothers and demanding biscuits just like them. Let's keep them this age for a while longer at least. x

  10. Love the messy face of enjoyment!! The yacky face when they no likely n the funny gum face of the first ice cream hit! Adorable. Love the new blog look by the way and thanks for all your support help ping me to link up xx

  11. The concentration on her face...

    I want that bit.. right there!
