diagnosis.

I'm guessing most 6 month olds could be diagnosed with pica. According to the DSM IV, "pica is a medical condition typically defined as the persistent eating of non-food items for a period of at least one month. People with pica crave and eat materials such as dirt, clay, chalk, lead chips, laundry starch, dishwashing soap, chalk, burnt matches, and many other non-food substances."
Non-food items that the wee one has attempted to eat today include "a camera chord, kitchen utensils, her own fists, her feet, shoes and one action figure."

I have been debating on if I want to get Brayden some cause I think they are so cute! Did you see the flamed ones that have a matching cap? I was thinking of getting those for him, putting them on his arms with a short sleeve shirt - so it would look like the layered look. What do you think?

Do it. I love those flamed ones on boys...I haven't seem the cap, but it sounds fun too. You'll like 'em. Are you getting them online?
