Funny story from last night: We were having dinner, and Dashiell was gobbling up his pasta like crazy. Rick said to him, "Why don't you have a bite of your green beans?" so Dashiell picked up a green bean and said "green bean really really good!" Then he took a bite, got this grossed-out look on his face, and said "Maybe not," and put the green bean back onto his plate. I tried so hard not to laugh, but man was it funny! We thanked him for trying it and said it was okay if he didn't want to eat anymore. :) For the record, he's had green beans before and liked them, though there have been other times he hasn't liked them so I think it just depends on his mood. Green beans aren't always my favorite either, so I can't hold it against him.
Attached are a couple of pictures of Dashiell doing his new favorite outside activity: watering the plants. Which also includes watering the sidewalk, the driveway, and his shoes. This is a daily (if not twice daily) activity for him. I'm hoping this will inspire me to actually do something with my yard this year!
