This evening while we were eating supper Shastya started crying a little which is her way of communicating. It took us a minute to realize that she wanted our rice. I had given her a few grains of rice another night, but tonight she was hungry! She wanted to have an entire baby serving of rice. We obliged her. We thought it would probably be okay if she had rice since she is eating oats in oatmeal. Anthony and I decided it was easier to feed her with chopsticks than with silverware.
