84/365: Orange You Happy?



Iris is a big fan of fruit. Being mindful of allergy warnings, we’d been keeping her away from citrus and strawberries. But it’s citrus season, and about a week ago I bought a big bag of clementines for Carl’s lunches and snacking. And, after all, how bad could it be? She wanted it. Just a taste.

Iris and I ate pretty much the whole bag, with the only known side effect being a much more satisfactory poop schedule. Yay fiber. Yay hardy babies.

Besides being delicious, oranges are also endlessly entertaining as toys, and I have fished them out of her toy box multiple times now (there’s another one rolling around the back seat of the car that I never remember to grab). They also act as surrogate security blankets.

She is occasionally lured by flashier toys.

But in the end, it’s all about the orange.

  1. Wow, is she cute! I love her happy faces. 🙂

    None of you kids but Stephen ever reacted to citrus (although I did try to keep you away until your first birthday). Stephen broke out with a bright red rash and cried inconsolably, so it must have hurt.
