Avocado Craziness

This is what happens when you give control of the spoon to an unexperienced eater.

That's right, she ate this whole thing: half of an avocado. I think that is actually larger than her stomach.

"I know I'm naughty, but I also know I'm cute and I can get away with it!"

Avi started trying new foods when she was around 7 months old. Rice cereal was boring so we expanded immediately to bananas (which she loved). Three days later we tried avocados. She L-O-V-E-D them. In fact, she loved it so much, she ate half an avocado in one sitting! Mommy didn't realize you should introduce a little bit to a baby at first. Well, the next day, Avi woke with a funny rash on her face and chest, and a little swollen around the eyes! Ooops!


  1. That's a true California baby!

  2. Avi,

    I couldn't believe that your Mom introduced you to avocados by giving you a whole avocado!!!! That was probably a bigger quantity than your whole stomach could hold!!

    I think she learned after that. Moherhood is a journey filled with many mistakes!!!

    But I really loved the picture that your Dad took of you with the avocado on your tummy!!
