John Thomas' Forty-second Week

<< Last week's page View Next week's page >>

John Thomas is trying to stand up every chance he gets now. He'll get upset if you stop walking him around after too short a time. He is very interested in pre-schoolers. When we go to the park he can't keep his eyes off of them, and when he and Mom went to an indoor playground he followed around a little girl who was about 2 1/2 for around 15 minutes.

As far as eating goes, he still wants to eat whatever is on Mom or Dad's plate. If there are just a couple of items on the table, he will eat whatever is there, but if he has multiple choices, he will show a preference and refuse a food that he previously seemed to love. He is pretty insistent about getting his next mouthful of table food from Mom or Dad's plate. But he calms right down as soon as the plate is empty... even if he is still hungry. He will only eat more than a couple of spoonfuls of baby food when there isn't other food options available.
