Adding spice to our lives

Or at least to Calvin's.  We got tired of always feeding him just plain pureed fruits and vegetables, so we started adding some natural spices for him to try.  playingindirt.jpgWe started this afternoon with cinnamon in the applesauce and, though we were nervous about this transition, the introduction went pretty well.  Actually, we aren't at all certain that he cared one bit about the new flavor - he showed no real preference over bites either with or without the spice in them.  Oh well.  In general he seems awfully distracted these days when we are inside, but who can blame him?  Now that he's had a taste of playing outside in the yard and going to watch the ducks at the pond bythtepond.jpg(which he invariably laughs at), why on earth would he want to play inside?  Seriously, the last few days it has really felt like spring, possibly even summer, finally arrived.  Of course, we can't really say "finally arrived," because it's still March and this is still Michigan.  Heck, around here spring can't really be considered late until June, so the recent days of sunny and seventy have been a wonderful treat.  Unfortunately, it looks like we will be saying goodbye to summer and hello to spring over the next week or so, but that was to be expected.  Calvin will just have to go back to being happy with his indoor play.

Here's a rhetorical question: Calvin, could you possibly be any cuter?

<scratching head> You mean I'm NOT supposed to be feeding my 15 month-old habanero salsa?

I guarantee that Becky's habanero salsa would get a reaction from Calvin. Cinnamon. Pshaw. (Go for it, Cortney and Jon!)

Actually, that salsa probably shouldn't be fed to adults, either. Ohhhhhhhh so delicious, but quite hazardous.
