Levi now eats "solid" food. And boy, does the boy eat his solid food! He can't get enough...total opposite of our experience with Colton who never really was a good eater (and still isn't to this day). Because of this, I'm facing all kinds of new challenges like can you overfeed a 4 month old? (seriously if anyone knows the answer to this, help me out...sometimes the 1 tbsp. just doesn't seem to satisfy him!)
|he's actually gotten much better and now barely makes a mess,|
but this picture from his early eating days was just too cute!
each day! Another part of this is that he now stays up in his bed before nap time and bed time just "reading" to himself...we'll watch/hear him on the monitor going through his books and saying the things he knows...it sounds something like "horse, duck, dog, cat, baaaa, blue, red," but is way more entertaining than any tv that is on!
Levi has fallen in love with his lovey, just like his big brother did. I don't know if it's something all kids do, but Colton has always loved putting lovey's tag in his mouth and sucking on it. And just a few days ago, I went in to get Levi out of his crib only to discover him doing the exact same thing!
Levi has also discovered his feet. They just may be his favorite new toy...and favorite sucking item!
And finally...and possibly most exciting of all...the boys are really getting to know each other. Levi is absolutely fascinated with Colton. Colton has his moments with his little brother when he doesn't want him around, but he's much more open these days to sharing things with him and even gives him a kiss when we drop him off at school.
