Today Harry is 36 weeks and 2 days old. Harry was born at 36 weeks and 2 days. It's crazy to think that he's now been outside my tummy longer than he was inside! Well, tomorrow I guess is when he will have been outside longer. Today is also the one year anniversary of finding out that Harry was a boy!
Baby's First Pickle
Yesterday for lunch I got a sandwich from a local deli. It was wrapped with a pickle so I thought it'd be funny to give it to Harry. He's never eaten anything besides rice puffy things outside of his mesh feeders so I wasn't quite sure how he'd handle it. I honestly thought he'd get a taste and hate it. Pickles have a very strong flavor that I didn't think would appeal to babies. I bet you know what happened!
They are hands down, his favorite food to date. He wasn't able to bite off the skin so a few times I took the pickle and bit it off for him so it'd be easier to eat. Kiddo had a total meltdown every time! I think part of it was he just loved feeding himself, but it was obvious he really liked the taste, too. Remind me to put a jar of pickles on our shopping list :)
What makes the pickles even funnier is that they are hands down, Ant's least favorite food ever. As in, he can't even touch a pickle without gagging. Seriously. He wasn't too happy that I even gave one to Harry in the first place. Oops. I like them, but I don't go out of my way to eat them usually.
No swimming for us this morning. Ant wants to go look for some new tennis shoes. Not sure if I'm going to go or stay home and work on stuff around here. Or take a nap. I'm going out tonight with a few girlfriends so I think a nap will do me good. Although I must admit Harry and I have been taking short naps together after his morning bottle recently. Not every day, just occasionally.
One more thing, I've been working on a cloth diaper accessories post that I had planned for today. Then the whole pickle thing happened and the pictures I took were just too cute not to post, so look for that later this week.
