Watermelon Please

We first discovered that the twins LOVE watermelon when we took it out to the pool to help replenish the twin’s fluids in this Texas summer triple-digit heat. Then, Ellisa started having feeding issues a couple days ago–complete bottle aversion– and we thought we should try giving her watermelon to help her hydrate. Well, she loves it so much we were literally putting milk in the watermelon rind, using it as a goblet, and letting her drink it that way. Crazy I know, but you’ll do anything when your baby won’t eat. Here’s some shots of us having a bit of Saturday fun with watermelon.

And just to let people know, in other parts of the country*, watermelon is known as piss punkin.
