Beautiful Day

It's a beautiful day here in Pittsburgh and Baby J was able to spend some time playing in the yard this afternoon. He loves being outside and exploring the grass, sidewalk, sticks and stones. He also likes walking along the sidewalk to the road - he really keeps mama on her toes!

Clearly, the antibiotic is working and Baby J is feeling better. No middle-of-the-night wakings for the last 3 nights and he slept in 'til 6 without needing to be held in the early morning. He's also starting to eat a little bit better. Yesterday, he decided he had a new favorite food. Apples. Not applesauce, not boiled pieces, whole cruncy apples. As Baby J was enjoying his snack of cheese, crackers and fruit pieces, I had an apple. He lost all interest in his snack and was screaming, crying and reaching for my apple. So, I let him try it out. Of course, I was quick to remove any large chunks that came loose (I'm absolutely terrified of him choking). When it was time to clean up, he didn't want to give it up and threw a fit. It was quite a sight. Since it was so cute and daddy missed it yesterday, I decided to replicate the scenerio again today. I wasn't even done rinsing the apple before Baby J started acting out and reaching for his new favorite snack. I ate most of the tough skin and handed it over.

This is all my fault. Every time we go to the grocery store, I let Baby J help me pick out apples - that is, I let him hold them for a minute and I explain that apples are round, red fruit. I guess I can't let him hold the apples anymore. He'll be taking bites in the store!!!
