Unlike her mother...

** (March 14) Update: We tried again this morning with some banana mashed together. Success! She finished EVERYTHING up and came close to licking both the spoon and bowl :) Next time though, we go plain avocado...

Sophie does not like avocado. You should have seen her- mouth clammed shut, face scrunched into incredulous disbelief that her parents would venture to feed her something of such foreign texture, and gag reflex operated at optimum throttle, threatening to barf out what little avocado she did take in all the way back at us.

I'm sorry, Sophie. Mama will not be deterred. Tomorrow, we try again.

you know, i never took to avocado until very much into uni. so maybe its the same for sophie. i envision her taking her avocado out of her california maki in days to come.
