This Kid is Bananas…B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

Usually for dinner, we give Eddie two baby foods: a fruit and a “meal” (chicken rice, veggie beef, etc.). Monday I noticed we were dangerously low on fruit, so I just cut up a bit of banana that was getting mushy and gave it to him.
At first he was intrigued by the slimy new finger food on his tray. Then he realized it tasted like his favorite jar of mush…BANANA!

So he celebrated.

and then dug right back into his banana. He very quickly (this kid eats like lightening) finished what I had given him.

in fact, it didn’t take him very long to eat the WHOLE dang banana…

And really? He was quite pleased with himself. Even if he did get banana sticky in his hair, ears, eyebrows, nostrils, forearms…well, you get the picture.

What I’m trying to say is…

Eddie loves bananas.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.

    hope it doesn't back him up! (ok, my TMI filter is broke). My girls LOVED bananas too – can't wait to test them out on Gage.
