We've been using this sudden interest in healthy foods to learn a little about the food groups, and how it's good to have something from each food group at every meal. I've been impressed with myself - I actually do pretty good most of the time! And when I don't, it's kind of nice to have someone else remind me - and for them to be excited about putting one more healthy thing on their plates.
Along with this interest in health, Micah's been exercising a lot, too. He runs in place,
he does "push-ups,"
he "makes his arms stronger."
He will also occasionally throw some sometimes-coordinated-sometimes-not-so-coordinated jumpingjacks in there.
Yes, we've definitely got some work to do on his form in the future! :) And don't miss the seriousness in his face - this is very serious business for him these days. Honestly, what I think is really happening here is a desperate attempt to catch up with his big brother - which might actually happen someday, who knows? And until then, I hope we can keep up this interest in healthy food and exercise! :)
