I consumed a crazy amount of watermelon and naval oranges before Ewan was born (and just after).
Now Ewan and I can finish off a quarter watermelon in two days… if we show much restraint and save a slice for day two.
Sure he was making a mess, but how can you take it away from a little guy this happy? I’d rather clean the floor more often. :)
I tried to confine the mess without limiting the fun by putting him in a chair by the window. It worked wonderfully.
He seems to like the green part as much as the red, but I did eventually take it away. He’s breaking through two molars, so the cold watermelon hits the spot. It’s funny how his hair can look anywhere from white-blond to dirty-blond to reddish depending on the light. And I just love the curls in back.
Unfortunately, the watermelon is not from our garden (the watermelon has not grown well), but Ewan has been enjoying our homegrown cantaloupe!
