Lemon Love

Izzy has had a love affair with lemons from his very first taste. Once while I was cooking, he stole a wedge off the table and instead of this, he giggled, smiled and kept on sucking it, as if it were candy. At first I thought this was quite odd and that perhaps it wouldn't happen again. But lo and behold, his second lemon encounter was the same, in fact he grabbed for it. I knew then it was genuine love. I started to give him lemon water as a beverage and I often spritz lemon juice into salad or veggies for him.

For awhile I began to think this was common amongst toddlers..I imagined them all screaming for lemons...that image was crushed this evening, seeing all those tiny sour faces.. Let's see if I can get a shot of Izzy and his lemons...stay-tuned.

Tilda and Charlie like lemons too, and for some reason tilda believes that lemons are John's favorite fruit, and that yellow is his favorite color because lemons are yellow.
