But that's not why I write. I write because I have been totally blown away by the sheer quantity of food Joseph can put away. The past two nights have been impressive in particular. Here's what he ate (that I can remember).
2-3 tablespoons peas and carrots
1 3/4 hot dogs (almost 2 entire hot dogs!)
What 9 month old can eat almost 2 hot dogs in one sitting???
Wednesday night (it was clean out the fridge/let Joseph get messy night so bear with me):
1 medium banana
5 club crackers
10(ish) goldfish crackers
1-2 tablespoons peas and carrots
3 bites butternut squash
3-4 bites spaghetti w/meat sauce
3 tater tots
And all that was after having a nice, big nursing session.
His tummy is only so big. I can't quite figure out where it all goes. I mean, last night I thought the banana alone would fill him up. It was pretty big. But he just kept eating. And eating. And eating. And drinking water, of course. He's figured out how to use his sippy cup, so now he drinks some water with his meals.
If this is any indication of how much food he'll be eating 15 years from now I better start stock piling food now.
