Eat more!

To no surprise of his parents, Christopher is quite the eater!  He loves all types of food - crackers, pasta, chicken, turkey, bananas, carrots, green beans, quesadillas, applesauce, bagels... and the list goes on and on...
What's fun for us is that he has learned sign language for a few key items.  One of the things we love about Christopher's day care is their passion to care for each child as well as their curriculum for the little ones.  In just a short time after his move into the Doodlebugs room, he was signing for when he wanted to eat.  For a while, Sara and I thought he was just playing around and clapping while he ate.  What we didn't understand is he was trying to tell us something all along.  He just wasn't quite good enough at the signs for us to understand.  But now there is no doubt.  He knows a couple more signs, but for now I will share his two favorites.
"Eat" - We see this sign a lot!
"More" - We see this one a lot, too!
And here he is enjoying a banana that he wanted within minutes of waking up the other day
