What Alaina Ate, pt 4.


I was at a loss for what to have our family get Addison for Christmas this past year. Addison loves music and dancing so I told my mom to get her a keyboard. The keyboard came with a microphone you can hook up so you can sing along with the preprogrammed songs. Apparently this is what Alaina thought of Addison’s singing ability.

She did this one WHILE she was eating lunch. I found it sitting next to her plate on the end table in the family room.

Addison always comes up with very appropriate names for her babies. We have Naked Baby, who is naked. We have Pink Baby, who wears a pink outfit. We have Moo Baby, who is dressed like a lamb. Because you know, lambs say “moo.”

Meet Blue Baby. Blue Baby and Pink Baby are twins. They came in a set together on Addison’s last birthday.

Two days after Addison’s birthday party this is how I found Blue Baby.

Alaina chewed off every.single.fingertip.

There are many unfortunate animals around our house. Most of them never saw it coming.

A puppy who has trouble hearing now.

A horse who has trouble walking now. The funny thing about this horse is that it’s “baby” has most of it’s skin chewed off I just couldn’t find it to take a picture.

A gorilla who has trouble, well, he has multiple problems.

For awhile now I’ve been joking around with some of my friends that I’m going to start a blog all about the things Alaina eats. From the time she was a baby she’s always had a very strong need to chew on things. It’s only gotten worse, and every year for the last 3 years I’ve mentioned it to her pediatrician. Every year she has blown it off and told me it’s “normal,” however I’ve never quiet felt like she understood the extent of what I was trying to say to her. Part of me wants to go into her office with a bag full of Alaina’s toys this year and dump them out on the exam table to show her exactly what I mean. Everyone used to think I was joking when I said Alaina would “eat” things. No, I use the word quiet literally. Things disappear. Chunks of toys, gone. It started with books when she was a baby and now nothing in our house is safe. I have a whole new knowledge about what sorts of materials the human body can digest and what it can’t because of Alaina’s bizarre obsession.

Now that I’ve started blogging more consistently again you all get treated to a daily segment of “What Alaina Ate” I’ll start out slow and gradually work my way up to the good stuff 🙂

We’ll start off with the obvious thing she might want to eat. Play food.
