Bitty cooks all the time to
procrastinate, so of course Jack has gotten used to the “Here, taste this”
and the proffered spoon of whatever Bitty had decided to whip up for the day.
Jack doesn’t even look up anymore when he’s helping Bitty chop up the vegetables,
or if he’s watching a documentary on his laptop in the kitchen so he can keep
Bitty company. He just opens his mouth as he continues to do whatever he’d been
doing, and gives comments like, “Mmm,” “Good. I like this,” “Is
there chicken in here,” and the “Hm. It’s okay,” which Bitty has learned
to interpret as a ‘No, don’t feed me this anymore.’
They start unconsciously doing it everywhere. At the Haus, when Bitty scoops up
the chicken salad he’d been mixing and shoves it towards Jack, who’s already
leaning in, Holster complains to Ransom, “Why don’t you feed me like that? It’s
like you don’t love me anymore, bro.” (Ransom responds, “Bro I used to and then you betrayed me and ate more than half of your share of the sundae.”) When Bob and Alicia visit Providence,
they witness Bitty in the process of feeding Jack a spoonful of something that looks like casserole, and Alicia didn’t even have time to comment, “Jack, I
thought you didn’t like casserole” when Jack says, “It’s good. Is there more?”
They go to a fair when they visit Georgia and Bitty doesn’t even think twice
before spooning the slush from his snow cone and offering it to Jack, who
nearly swallows the entire spoon because he hadn’t been paying attention.
Jack finally returns the favor at their wedding, when he offers Bitty his
forkful of cake and kisses the icing off the corner of Bitty’s face.

On May 2, Bucky was 13.9 pounds. On May 9, he was 19.6 pounds. At this rate, I’m going to have a grizzly bear for a puppy.
And someone needs to fanfic my life. “Bucky, why are you eating a wheel?” “Bucky, stop chewing the dishwasher.” “Bucky, stop chasing the cat.” Though that last one will hopefully be the plot of Black Panther.
