"When one has tasted watermelon, he knows what the angels eat"
~Mark Twain

To say that Conor loves watermelon is an injustice.  There are no words strong enough to describe his affection for it.  His first taste was last weekend at his friend Griffin's house.  He enjoyed it, so we tried it again last night.  He was able to hold his own slice and eat it well enough, and we could tell he was enjoying it by his little "mmmmmm" noises.  

What we didn't count on was that he'd try to eat the rind, too.  When we took that away from him, he was beside himself.  He cried.  Hard.  I'm not talking pouty, whiney cries - these were full on sobs with HUGE tears streaming down his face.  He could see the leftover rinds on the table and just pointed and cried.  (Of course we gave him a little more then quickly removed all traces of the leftovers from sight.) 

Today at lunch, he enjoyed a presliced serving with no leftovers anywhere in sight:


  1. Madeline loves watermelon too! I've been worried she would get a belly ache from the amount that she will eat! When I showed her these pictures, she said we should give you the other watermelon from our garden (she and Jason were able to get a few watermelons in the garden this summer). :)

  2. If only there was some way to combine watermelon and cheese that wouldn't be gross...
