Bottomless pit. . .

We're raising a little eating machine. He just sits and eats and eats and eats. This morning for breakfast he ate a pancake, 3/4 of a banana, a handful of Cherrios and 5 oz of milk. . . quite a feat for a man who supposedly has a stomach the size of his own fist.

Today was heaven for him, Thanksgiving. He didn't like turkey, but the potatoes, the stuffing, the cranberry sauce, and the bread. . . dear lord the boy ate 2 whole rolls, one each family dinner! The boy doesn't stop. I don't now where he puts it.

I'm worried if he keeps up this pace we're going to end up on Maury Povich in a couple years, with an 80 lbs preschooler. He's still not a big boy by any means, but if he keeps putting away so much food he'll have things flying in orbit around him in no time.

My older son was the same way. If you kept putting it on his tray he would eat it. He was 23lbs by a year old. He has since evened out. Peyton is a carbaholic. Will only eat carb related stuff. He will eat chicken and turkey, but would much rather eat bread given the choice.

Glad you all had a nice Thanksgiving.
