Well, at least my craving for Pink Lady apples during my pregnancy with you now has an explanation....and pickles...and limes....You simply love them! You can work on an apple for a looooooooooong time skin and all. This past weekend you at 2 dill pickle spears completely. Today you ate an entire cucumber whole like an apple. However, I do think apples are your favorite. When you see them in the store you reach out for them, and usually get one as it entertains you and all the people we encounter in the store for our entire shopping trip.
Actually you have been getting apples for months, but since most view whole crunchy apples as not an appropriate baby food, I kept that mostly under wraps and made sure you only ate apples when supervised. You never needed intervention, but it made me feel better although we definitely got some weird looks and questions from nosy old ladies in the grocery store as you munched away. You sure did let me have it that day at the supermarket when I had to take it away so we could drive home. I couldn't have you eating an apple when rear facing and I couldn't make sure you were not choking. I gave you a new one when we got home...
You carry that thing all over the place and sometimes set it down for a while...but you always know where it is.
I often find myself wondering what is so magical about eating an object almost as big as your head...whether it be apples, peaches or plums. Never mind we still have to have a bath after you smear the various whole fruits in various stages of consumption all over yourself, but your bathing frequency is another topic altogether. I am convinced you have a master plan to get as many baths as possible in a single day. The good news with an apple is it is one of the lesser of the messy whole fruits....so apples are all good with your momma!
The water table is always a good place to leave it while you go play for a bit...and I like it that you wash off some of the grime that accumulates from your traveling apple snack.
When you need a little nibble...
