Bottomless Pit

When Karter was sick for a week, his diet consisted of nothing but crackers, toast and water/Gatorade. For the past week and a half, he has been making up for the calories he missed out a whole lot more!! These days he never seems to get full.

He eats three big meals a day and a lot of snacks in between. On this particular day he had an entire NutriGrain bar and a cup of applesauce as a snack. For a snack on our recent trip to KC, he ate an entire grilled turkey and cheese one day. He is a big eater lately.

He also drinks milk like it is his job!! When he was sick he wasn't suppose to have milk for a whole week (we caved after about 5 days) and he wasn't happy about it, so now he drinks as much as possible just in case we deprive him of it again! I'm sure he will even out when this little growth spurt is over, but in the mean time we are left wondering about our grocery bills when he is a teenager!!

Here is a little video of Karter feeding himself lunch the other day...don't worry, we've stopped giving him his lunch in our good dishes!

That was too cute! I loved it! Especially the part where he put it on the spoon only to actually eat it with his fingers. Priceless!

Grandma's got tears in her eyes! That is SO PRECIOUS...he is concentrating so hard! I can't believe how much he's changed just since the wedding. Amazing!

Counting the days until we see you! Love you all!!!

This is just plain adorable! What sheer patience working with that spoon! I'm impressed. Quite the growing boy with many talents, way to keep him learning :)
