As I'm scrolling through all the Facebook photos I might have ever posted of him, I begin to notice a pattern - that I take an awful lot of pictures of my kids...with food.
And then I realize that probably doesn't surprise you...as it shouldn't surprise me.
So, what better way to celebrate the wee one's birthday than with a montage of him with food.
These two were taken when he was about four and a half. You'll notice his palate is quite unrefined as he prefers single items: frosting and strawberries.
From right around that same time period...
Always the BLUE ring pop!
And about three years later, he still has a thing for frosting...
But, he's also not afraid to try new things...like shellfish. I didn't say he liked it, I just said he wasn't afraid to try it.
A few months later, he tries gelato from a Dutch chocolaterie. It appears to go well.
And, just recently, his maturity really begins to take off when he tries (and likes) poutine, the classic Canadian dish.
He's come quite a ways, culinary-wise, in the last ten years. Hopefully the next ten will be even better. Happy Birthday, kiddo.
