Gabe Eat's Edamame from the Garden

I picked some of the soy beans just before lunch and decided to try making edamame for lunch. I figured Michelle and I would split some. Much to my surprise Gabe go into his chair and dove in.

It took him a couple attempts before he figured out how to get them open, but he learned quickly.

Nom Nom Nom goes Gabe.

Earlier this morning Gabe shelled a bunch of dried peas for me, so I'm wondering if that helped him out with the edamame. Though eventually he copied mom and dad and started popping the pods in his mouth to break them open.

Happy boy full of fresh organic edamame. If I ever doubted if all the time in the garden was worth it, watching Gabe happily eat GREEN things from the garden has dispelled that doubt.

A birthday toy

Gabe picked out his gift at the toystore.

He likes it almost as much as the balloons.

Thank you everyone for the fleet of toy construction vehicles, and the other lovely gifts! Gabe loves them all.

Overheard on the Baby Monitor. . .

"One diaper, two diaper. One diaper, two diaper. I did it!"
