My first diet
Since this is my first "Fro" carnival, I thought I'd begin - at the beginning. I was only 7 lbs 6 oz when I was born, but I quickly learned that I liked to eat.
This is a picture of me at 6 weeks old. Yeah, that's right 6 WEEKS!
My family went to Florida for vacation and left me with my aunt (who lives near Tampa) the day they took my sister to disney. I cried the entire time and my aunt (who has 3 children all at least a decade older than me) had no clue what to do with me.
Her neighbor called to see what the commotion was about (yep, I've got that big of a mouth) and suggested they feed me a bananna. At 6 weeks old. I ate it and then slept the rest of the day. My aunt has later said she was terrified she'd killed me.
But thus began my love of food. Shortly there after I was put on a diet. My mom had to give me a bottle of sugar water as a test - if I drank it, I was hungry and needed a real bottle. If I wouldn't take it, I was just being fussy.
I thought it was fitting to share this with you now, given that I have just started diet #815 (high fives all the LOST fans out there).
