The First Taste


Dear Naomi,

I don't remember the first time I had my first spoon full of goodness.  I can imagine that it was something so new and exciting, and most definitely messy.  Yet, watching you experience food for the first time, watching a little human experience food for the first time, was one of the most amazing things we have done with you so far.  Mama prepared your meal with love and care, as you sat patiently.  The look of excitment that you had in your face was something we won't ever forget.  You practically knew exactly what to do when you saw the spoon.  Maybe that's because you have watched us so closely the past few months or maybe it's because you just instinctually knew exactly what to do.  Whatever the case, you loved avocados!  And we loved seeing you so happy and excited to have it.  It will be a lot of fun introducing you to all the different delicious and healthy foods that are in your future - and a little messy too :)

Thank you for letting us have this moment with you.  Mama and Papa love you.
