sweet potato queen
S has been devouring sweet potatoes for a week now. She eats them with a voracity usually reserved around here for the relationship between her father and a bowl of ice cream. She loves them. Loves. Of course, the child cannot go through life only eating sweet potatoes, so this morning we moved on, introducing a new food. Avocado. While she didn't like it quite as much as the sweet potatoes, she gobbled up an entire half of a pureed avocado. I think it's safe to say she's not going to starve. The downside to her healthy appetite is that soon enough there will be avocado poop. The sweet potato poopers haven't been as bad as I worried. They were a very Texas Longhorn shade of orange. Here's a lovely shot of mealtime...when her daddy was feeding her. Also, she can both crawl and sit up now. Both are developments from the past few days. It's very exciting stuff around here. Of course, she bonked her noggin once when she was sitting up and fell over into the bookshelves. Luckily, she hit the flat part and not an edge. I guess the time has come to start really worrying about bumps and bruises and whatnot. Lovely. It's just about nap time, so I must be off. Happy Monday, folks.
