Alas, one of my favorite foods is not a hit with CC. But to be fair, it must look very strange to her; all the veggies she's had so far have been orange. And carrots (the first orange food she had) weren't an immediate hit, either. Plus avocado isn't sweet the way orange vegetables are. Hopefully CC will learn to like avocado just as she learned to like carrots.
Once she starts eating avocado better, we will try letting her feed herself with chunks of it. We are a little nervous to let her try chewing larger pieces of food, but the doctor recommended it, so we will give it a try (while watching her like a hawk). I'll report back on the results.
