Since my post last week after his pediatric appointment, Jack has decided that food is the best thing in the world. Suddenly he is ravenous. He’ll finish a whole box of raisins in a sitting, eat the corners off all the slices of pizza, and finished off a package of cherry tomatoes in a mere 3 days. Can we say growth spurt?
He still isn’t drinking much during the day but luckily many of the foods we give him keep him hydrated and he still nurses like a champ when we’re together. I have no idea what to do to encourage him to drink during the day, as no vessel seems to tempt him.
I like the fact that Jack can now tell us when he’s hungry. Last night he gestured upward with his hand toward a box of Cheerios and opened and closed his fist while he chanted, “Moremoremore…” It’s adorable.
Gosh, sometimes it seems these kids like to freak out their parents on purpose.
