Zibing is such a smart, observant little girl that I had truly started to despair that she would ever chew with her mouth closed!
In the big scheme of things, I know - not the most important thing in the world. BUT, the smacking has really been about to drive. Jas. and I. crazy!
So at every meal since we first met her 4 1/2 weeks ago, we've demonstrated to her, very nicely and patiently, how to chew with lips closed.
And then a few days ago, TA DA....success!
She is so proud of herself! She says "Mama!" and points to her lips many times during every meal. So cute!
