Strawberries are one of my favorite treats of summer. And Naomi is also developing a taste for them.

Today I was making a fruit salad while Naomi was eating her lunch. During much of the process she was very preoccupied with spooning her lunch herself {she is entering the independent phase where she does not want any help in eating} and not that interested in what I was doing. Until I began chopping up the strawberries, then she began fretting and fussing. At first I did not understand, but once I figured it out and handed her a few pieces of strawberries, all was well in the world.

Don't you wish all problems in life were so easily solved? A few strawberries and happiness ensues.
