Reasoning with an infant

Can somebody please tell me how to reason with my 4-month-old? Yes, I know she can barely hold up her own head. No, she has not yet mastered her opposable thumbs. But, really ...

Me: Baby, you cannot swallow your entire fist.

Me: I promise. It won’t fit.

Me: Really, you’re going to gag yourself.

ME: Really? See? Fine.


  1. HA!!!! My 4 month old started doing the same thing but now he figured out that 1 or 2 fingers accomplishes much more.

    Super cute baby. :)

  2. She's too cute! I love the sweet pea where did you get it? I'm all up for bows, just let me know what you need. I'll be in Gonzales this weekend. If you want some I can take them with me and have them passed over to your mom to send your way.

  3. Haha... Eli does the exact same thing! I always have to remind him that milk does not come out of his first when he's supposed to be drinking his bottle!

  4. I love how you're all "Ha Ha... told ya so!" I do the same thing....
