AwesomeCloud picked and ate his first wild blackberry!
And he doesn't even like fruit very much. I think there's an instinct for eating pick-it-yourself fruit. I think I have it too.
In all, he ate four blackberries - three I picked for him and one he picked himself. He even sort of followed my instructions on choosing a good berry to pick. "The black ones, not the red ones." I don't know if he knows his colors yet, since he's never really responded to any color in a way that proved he knew it by name. But I keep trying.
Daddy and Joe took him to the Roger Williams Zoo in Providence today, while I spent the afternoon at home sweaty and miserable and failing to find the paper cutter so I can cut the signs I made for Audubon. Meh. Sometimes I go outside and look up at the gray clouds, hoping for a raindrop. None yet.
Hmm. AwesomeCloud had another first today, but I can't recall what it was. They come so fast and furious, especially if you count the nuances, like 'first sentence spoken as a three-syllable phrase' and 'first sentence assembled independently' as two different things.
He tried his first bratwurst sausage yesterday, and had his first taco a week ago. (The bratwurst was my first, too. Hey, we can't all be on the same schedule.)
