Ok, so sorry to keep talking about Spigotbottom's eating habits, but it's just funny, these first forays into solid food.

So there was the episode with the peach this morning, and then this evening, I was really hungry and tucked into an ear of corn that I had boiled up earlier. She went for it. She couldn't make any real headway, what with not having teeth and all, but she proceeded to gum the bejesus out of it for 40 minutes. 40 minutes! That's like eternity in baby time. Actually there were two cobs involved-- she had her fill of the first one and started crying and reaching for the sink where the others were sitting in a colander. So I broke out a second one, and she went at it with renewed fervor. Finally she just exhausted herself-- she started crying, and she was still reaching for the cob as I took it away, and sort of leaned wearily into my chest, started sucking her thumb and closed her eyes.

Just can't imagine what it's going to be like when she finally gets to have bacon.
