Orange is still Ollie's color of preference, but he likes "all the colors" too. He loves mac'n'cheese, olives, and broccoli. Oliver thinks he likes sweets but never actually finishes anything sugary we give him--especially chocolate. Last night we had s'mores around the campfire and all Oliver wanted to do was eat the graham crackers. No marshmallows. No chocolate. But he would eat a vat of blueberries any day.
