If you give an Olivia some cereal, she’ll stare back at you with those baby blues, clutching that oh-so-fascinating plastic spoon to her heart as the serving you had so carefully poured onto her tongue dribbles like a fountain right out of her mouth and all over her baby jowls.
If you give an Olivia some cereal, she’ll start to realize that her oh-so-fascinating plastic spoon has a habit of sticking itself into her mouth without warning, and she’ll look at you with a face that asks both “Why is this happening to me?” and “Is this normal?” as you continue to spoon baby scoops onto her tongue.
If you give an Olivia some cereal, she’ll start to let her pudgy body hang over the side of her kitchen throne in defiance of that plastic spoon she thought she knew and loved. Sometimes you’ll trick her into a smile, but most of the time, she’ll stare longingly at the February snow outside, dreaming of the day when her pudgy legs and back muscles are strong enough to escape her spot on the kitchen table.
If you give an Olivia some cereal, you’ll learn that she may not be cereal’s biggest fan. But she’ll give you a face like the one above and reveal a cute nose wrinkle that you hadn’t noticed before, and you’ll find yourself eager for the next time you decide to give your Olivia some cereal.
