So Totally Off Topic

It must be a growth spurt. It just has to be. I'm shocked and amazed at how much food my little guy, Josh, is just packing away today. I mean really!

First of all, he's nursed about 3-4 times today. He usually will nurse for anywhere from 15 - 45 minutes. Then had probably 1/2 cup of cheerios (with milk) for breakfast. Then he ate an entire full-sized breakfast burrito filled with scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, cheddar cheese, cut up leftover hamburger patty, and sour cream. He ate the whole thing! He was asleep during our late lunch but he made up for it. He just finished packing away 2 slices of cheese pizza minus the crusts. That just seems like a lot of food for a 16 month old toddler...and its more than my 8 year old ate today. Oh, and now he's begging his sister for some of the yogurt she's eating.

He's also managed to slurp down about 20oz of Tang and another 10oz of water, as well. He's always drinking something. He drinks so much that I actually asked the pediatrician about it at his last appointment.

What am I going to do when he gets older? Take out a second mortgage just to feed him?
