Memory Lane

This is a picture from July 2003. DD2 with her very first ice cream cone. It was actually MY ice cream cone, but - at the urging of my oldest sister and my mom (peer pressure)- I gave DD2 a little taste. That was the end of it... she screeched like a howler monkey until I let her have it, and every time I tried to take it out of her hand she screeched even louder than the time before. (I had to keep taking it from her, as it was chocolate chip ice cream - and while I did give her the ice cream, I was not giving in to the chocolate chips - so I had to keep picking them out.) DD2 was absolutely in love with this new found deliciousness, as a 8 months old she had never, ever tasted anything like it. (She didn't start on baby food until two months earlier, and she was still nursing at this point.)

My oldest daughter? I think her first taste of anything like that was at her first birthday, and then certainly not her own cone for goodness sake!

It pays to be the second child.

Ganelle - By the third one I'd have been giving them smoothies from Jamba Juice instead of formula!

tz - I'm sure there are people out there who are horrified that I gave that chubby little darling child anything with that much fat and sugar! She was SO cute, though. Gosh, she was an easy, fun baby.

That will always be one of my favorite memories!!! (Perhaps this is where the eternal love for chocolate came from??)

I love how she is so intent with her (your) ice cream. That's a girl who knows what she wants!

Sometimes I wish I could do their baby years all over again. (Of course, I've forgotten most of the really awful stuff. Sleepless nights again? Not so much!)

She is still a girl who knows what she wants!
