Watermelon is definitely E's favorite food right now. He calls it "wawa", just like water. We have a bowl of mixed watermelon and pineapple, and he likes to give all the pineapples to me, and eat all the watermelon himself! With all of this interest in watermelon, we're also trying pickled watermelon rinds. They're just the rinds, water, salt, and a few days out on the counter. We'll find out how they are in another couple of days.
Here's the cooking assistant just after we finished measuring out the salt. He's in his learning tower which *drumroll* ... he can get in to by himself now - a big step in motor skills! E is quite pleased that he can get in to the tower on his own too.
Mr. Muffin learned how to make the "sh" sound just recently, and right away added new words to his vocabulary, like "shoes" and "shirt." He's also been really interested in lining up objects lately, especially his block crayons (they're small rectangles). He arranges them more than he colors with them these days.
Update: Those watermelon rinds didn't turn out so tasty afterall - the texture was a bit odd...
