Alex: Covered in food and happy as can be!
That boy loves to eat.He always has. (Perhaps that's why he weighed 6 lbs. 1 oz. at birth!)
Isaac is still thinking about this whole solids things and Sam has caught on pretty well, but so far hasn't taken all that much.
But Alex, oh Alex.
Today Alex ate almost half a jar of applesauce plus a couple tablespoons of rice cereal all by himself.
We've only been taking solids from a spoon this week (which is a whole new challenge for me), and after about two days, I noticed that Alex would take his bite, swallow and then open his mouth and wait for me to come around again. He looks just like a little bird, waiting with his mouth wide open while I feed his brothers.
I can already hear him saying to his siblings, "Are you going to finish that?"
