Ever since Paloma has recovered from surgery & the flu, she hasn't stopped eating - literally. This afternoon when I picked her up from her crib, she immediately began to sign "eat" over and over again. Apparently she is making up for the last few weeks when eating just hasn't been her top priority. I still have no idea why she isn't registering on the growth curve. Anyways, she has figured out where we stash the snacks and dry cereal and unfortunately it is totally accessible to her. She now "helps herself" to a snack whenever she is hungry.
