Apples are awesome! Our kiddos are all really into apples right now and they have become a go-to distractor when we need to buy ourselves a few minutes of entertainment. I know I mentioned that the kiddos all have a couple of teeth now and they are using them to good effect on apples. When we first handed them apples we didn't really expect that they would really be able to eat them and at first they really only made a few teeth marks in them, but they've gotten pretty good and actually eat a decent amount of apple if we give them enough time.
Avery's expression in this photo is perfect for this post! She & Ellie both like to talk to their apples =)
In fact, yesterday Isaiah ate an entire apple..no really, the WHOLE thing, core and all! He was very focused on his apple and was a happy camper just eating his apple for a long long time yesterday afternoon. The girls sometimes try to steal his apples because he gets into them a little better/faster than they do so they like to take his after a few minutes to enjoy the sweet juicy goodness he has uncovered under the skin! He has mastered getting through the skin and will often spit out pieces of skin (that we later find all over the floor...but so worth a little sweeping!). Here are a few pics of our little apple lover & evidence of today's almost completely devoured apple.
