  1. Okay, if you swapped out your Stokke for my crappy Ikea highchair, that is EXACTLY what life in my house looks like. Lorelei (7 1/2 months old) eats her mum mums and organic banana puffs while Lucy (our 4 year-old black lab) waits eagerly on the floor for the inevitable soggy rice rusk to float on down. They make a good team. And how cute is Leyna? Holy cow!

  2. Too cute! Dogs and babies make the best friends, don’t they?

    At least it looks like Leyna has learned to drop the treats. My son just leans over and lets the dog lick his hands clean mid-meal–ick! Good for his immune system, I suppose. 😉

  3. So cute! My dogs quickly became best buds with our boys. They get so excited when the boys sit down to eat a meal or a snack because they know something yummy will be launched their way very soon 🙂

  4. This is how we know my one year old is done with a meal/snack…she starts throwing her food over at the dog. And our 5 year old Shar Pei mix happily parks herself next to my daughter during meal time and waits for the plethora of goodies to come her way.

    BTW, I have never seen a dog more gentle than when our daughter is sitting on the floor or in her high chair and offers the dog some food and the dog takes it away. Its like she KNOWS there are little bitty fingers that she doesn’t want to bite off.
