Feeding the boy.

For the first time tonight, Clone ate a hamburger. It’s not that we’ve never given him one before. It’s just that he usually picks them apart, eating the cheese, licking off the ketchup and mayo. What is left is a soggy slobber covered bun and matching meat patty.

Tonight he didn’t pick apart the burger. He ate the whole thing the way it was supposed to be eaten. Well, except he would dip it into the ketchup that was for his French fries. Maybe things are changing in the way he eats. We could only be so lucky.

I know how you feel. When the boy ate a burger for the first time, I was really excited. He would only eat the bread before, and only if it didn't have ketchup or anything on it. Now, he chows on burgers and will even eat a cold-cut sandwich if I tell him I made it special for him. His eating habits have definately changed.

Well hell, you really do learn something new everyday.

That's the way I always eat my burgers.
