the tale of the angry avocado

Once upon a time, a few months ago, Momma decided to feed her boy mashed up avocados mixed with breast milk because it is supposed to be a great early solid food for little ones!

Little J wasn't quite sure what to think of this new and peculiar flavor.

"Mommy, I don't think this is such a good idea..." his desperate eyes spoke to Momma.  But Momma read in a book this was a good idea, so she pressed on and finished up feeding him the portion she had prepared.

About an hour later, Momma took little J outside to enjoy the first 80 degree day of the season and to take some pictures for his 5 month 'birthday'.  The photo session was going swimmingly until J started to fuss and squirm and make funny faces.

And then out came the angry avocado all over little J's little cute onesie.

Score..... Avocado:1     James: 0

"I told you so, Momma, that gross green stuff was not a good idea..."

Momma's thinking, "The downside: abrupt end of photo session.  The upside: material for an entertaining blog post?"

"Seriously, Momma, can you stop taking pictures of me and get this sick stuff off my face already?"

"Ok little man, you were right.  No more avocado for a long while."

Epilogue: James and angry avocado's rocky relationship continued as a I tried introducing it a couple different times later on.  Once it resulted in me walking into his room at 2 a.m. to a screaming boy and the strong smell of puke, reaching down to pick him up out of his crib and feeling slimy vomit all down his pjs (like WAY more than in these pictures), and having to change his clothes and bedding in my half awake state before nursing him and putting him back to bed. (Poor little guy. Poor me.)  Another time I went into his crib to get him after his last nap and found him smiling, left the room for a second to go grab something, came back to find him puking green slime all over his front.  Justin luckily happened to be taking a shower after working out at the time so I literally picked James up and shoved him into the shower with Justin fully clothed to rinse off the grossness.  The third attempt, however, was finally successful and now avocado and JJ are good friends and get along with each other quite well!
