Baby Eats All
Our baby has always been a great eater. When we were reading the books describing newborn feeding styles it has been clear from day one that Ethan is what is described as 'The Barracuda' - he is all business when it comes to food. Now that we are on solids, his voracious appetite is apparent from not only the quantity that he eats, but how he eats. He attacks and clamps down on the spoon as if he didn't just have a mouthful of food a second ago. If we are too slow at spooning him food he will pound the table in eager anticipation. If we show him his bottle and don't feed him the next second, he gets very upset and actually cries in anger. And if there is a toy that he wants, it's in his mouth the next second. Lately, every time I pick up a camera to take a picture, I always find an object in his mouth. There is no doubt about it - our baby loves to eat.
