Playing favorites.

These days it doesn't take much guesswork to figure out what point Henry is trying to get across to us. He's definitely beefed up his communication skills and it's pretty clear when he does or doesn't like something. Try to give him a bite of something he's not particularly craving and you get a "No-No" and dismissive head turn. Ask him if he wants you to play "his music" and you get a delighted little giggle that clearly means yes. So it's been pretty easy to identify what he likes and what he doesn't.

I think it's safe to say he likes mashed potatoes. And Mr.-I-don't-need-any-help-with-my-spoon managed to create quite the little masterpiece on his face.

These days when he hears the word "playground" a grin and a giggle quickly follow.

Although he hasn't really said so, I'm pretty sure he likes the new skull and crossbones pajamas his Mama bought him. I mean, who wouldn't?

His fellow redheaded friend continues to be a source of wonder and amazement for Henry. We love it when Jack comes to play.

He's quite the fan of hanging out with his cousins too.

And when a weekend trip to Pulaski results in getting lots of attention from lots of people, he doesn't seem to mind that so much either.

Henry is really turning into a good eater. He'll try almost anything we give him a bite of (although he doesn't always come back for seconds) and we're really trying to expose his palate to a lot of different flavors and textures. Time in the highchair is good for new foods...and new photos.

Another new food I hope I can tempt Henry's palate with will be as a result of these little beauties.

New tomato plants clearly need a good source of light. I had sufficient grow lights, but wasn't thrilled with my whole light setup from the last time I grew tomato plants. Handy Brit to the rescue! Give Will some PVC pipe and a hacksaw and he will give you great things.

A little phone dump to end this week's entry! Happy March!
