With all the toys we have lying around the house, this is what Patrick has chosen to play with today. Lord, help us all! :)
Other updates: this morning, Patrick had two packets of oatmeal (prepared with milk) and a cup of watered down juice (with vitamin). An hour later, he requested a banana and ate the whole thing. I’m not sure where he’s putting all of it, but I’m sure glad he’s eating.

Patrick enjoyed his first lollipop. I had to steal it away to get rid of it before naptime.
Items to note: Patrick is growing by leaps and bounds. He is definitely embracing his own personality. In the last few weeks, he has decided that he doesn’t want to sleep in his bed, but rather, on the floor right next to it (Mike and I are debating whether or not to put his crib banister back up this weekend). He no longer wants to play with his bath toys, but wants to play with a cup and wet himself during bathtime. He is eating again – picadillo and rice, chicken, apples, bananas, yogurt. His vocabulary is increasing: happy, pamper, thank you (in English), it’s okay. He is reciting the alphabet daily and can recognize letters and numbers with no problem.
