He is hungry again. Barnabas is getting back his appetite. When he was down with fever, diarrhea and stomachache two weeks ago, his appetite went down. He hardly want to eat and the amount of food that he eats are little. I think it is because of stomach discomfort that he ate little. Now that he is healthy again, his appetite is really big.
Now, he cannot see other people eating. If he sees his mommy eating, he will immediately go over and ask for something to eat. And while eating and he sees his daddy eating some other food, he would then go to his daddy and still ask for some more food. Mind you, this happened even after he had his 6 ounces of milk. Hahaha...I think he wants to regain the weight that he lost when he was sick.
On the dining table his mommy has put various types of biscuits, wafers, candy and other tit-bits. This is where he likes to go when he is hungry, finding food to eat. In the long term, I think it would be cheaper and cost saving to buy candies from bulk candy store. There are various types of candies like Butter Fingers, Kit Kats, Almond Joys, Skittles, and Mentos that Barnabas would love to have in his mouth.
