I mushed up a small amount of an organic avocado and diluted it with a little bit of water, as I just wasn't up to thawing some breast milk and I hate to waste any of it. I probably should have just done it anyway to include something familiar to the taste, but I guess I was just hoping that she would find the avocado so delectable that she wouldn't care. But Evangeline wouldn't be a princess if she didn't care, now would she? And so began The First Supper...
The spoon certainly made a big hit. She was adamant that she, not I, would hold it. So, into the mouth it would go, where Evangeline simply intended to gum at its nice, rubbery end, when suddenly there was a taste of something new! Her face exclaimed, "What is this?! This isn't Mommy's milk! I didn't sign up for this! What are you doing to me?!" Then, after the shock wore off, her face would say, "Oh, well, I guess it's not that bad. Maybe I did overreact just a bit. Oh, look--a spoon!" and we would get to experience the fun all over again.

The past month has been so busy that I haven't had a chance to post. It's been a good kind of busy, though--visiting family and friends in Tennessee and Georgia. I'll hopefully get a chance to post some pictures in the next couple of weeks, but, until then, I'll try to entertain you with just a few of the cute things Eliana has been saying lately:
I not my name. My name is Mommy now. There are different kinds of mommies. I don't know why there are different kinds.
I love Grandma. I love Daddy. I love Eliana.
I'm such a good mommy!
Eliana has pretty, curly hair.
Kayla (her cousin), you my granddaughter.
My eyes is cold. I need to wear my sunglasses.
I don't like sleeping.
I cannot go to bed because I sick.
Don't look at me, Evangeline! I trying to eat!
Evangeline, don't look at my food!
I love you, baby sister!
I'm so proud of you, Evangeline!
