Lucy Appleseed

Lucy can eat an apple by herself. It's really cute because she holds it with two hands, and turns it around and gnaws on it like a squirrel, with her eyebrows furrowed, like "nobody better take away my apple!" She's good at it though, and it's an easy way for her to self-feed while I do something else. Today during lunch I gave her an apple to work on while I did dishes. Before I realized it she had eaten almost the entire thing... down to nothing more than a nub the size of a peach pit. This means some of the core must've been eaten too... and now she's a little worried that an apple tree is going to start growing inside her tummy.

Ella loves to eat apples that way too! It never occured to me to give a baby an apple, but a few months ago we were in a store that had a bin of fresh apples out and Dylan handed her one without me knowing. It keeps her quiet for a long time!
