Elisha got a pirate hat last week from his great Aunt Celia, along with a pirate puzzle and the game battleship. He wore the pirate hat constantly for 5 days, even adding a feather to it to make it more like a real captains hat. He did let Malachi try it out, and what a cute little Midshipman did he make!
About 2 weeks ago Malachi started to give baby kisses back to me whenever I would kiss him all over his face. Or, a better way to describe them would be slobbery open mouthed attacks. It is a fun game to kiss him until he is giggling, then let him come at me and slobber on my face.
We are starting to give Malachi finger foods. He seems ready, and when I put some sweet potato puffs on his tray, he had a blast chasing them around and trying to maneuver them into his mouth. Most fell on the floor, to the delight of the dog, but I'm sure in no time he will get the hang of it. He has now tried banana pieces, cooked carrot pieces, and the sweet potato puffs. No gagging yet; he very happily gums the food until he can swallow it.
I am constantly amazed at how unique each child is!!
