When Ben and I first started dating in the summer of '07, we shared many of Watermelons together. After we'd go to dinner, still all nervous and exited, we'd always end back up at his house, cut open a huge watermelon and give each other half. We'd go outside on his porch, and eat away while we talked and laughed. It is still one of my favorite things to do with him. (little things people, the little things) ;) Of course we wanted to share the tradition with Scarlett. And to our surprise, she LOVES it! The kid hardly eats anything as it is and we were pretty sure that was going to continue when we offered her a piece, but she happily accepted and has eaten her weight in watermelon these past couple of days! Ben isn't a huge fan of getting his picture taken, but I think the idea of having more pictures of him and Scarlett together, eases him - hoping that maybe this'll help with the transition of him being gone On the other hand, she's been boycotting pictures with me. As much as it saddens me when Ben is gone, I love what it does for Scarlett and I. I'm hoping that'll continue this time around, this whole "Anti-Mommy" thing is too much!
