We discovered this week that Calvin loves cous-cous. I’m not exaggerating - he LOVES it. Whenever I tried feeding him something else, he wouldn’t eat it unless there was also at least an equal amount of cous-cous on the spoon. And whenever his tray was empty of cous-cous, he demanded more.
Oh yes, and did I say that he liked to feed himself? He did it Moroccan style - with his hands. Not just fingers - he used his whole hand - fingers, thumb, and palm, to scoop it up and shove it in his mouth.
Here are a few pictures depicting the event. Also one of Patrick, to show the relative neatness of the two boys; while it is true Patrick wasn’t quite as enthusiastic about the cous-cous, he did eat it – just a little more neatly :)
