I’ve decided that our kids are eaters. Our fast growing little man Garrett thinks he needs to nurse as often as possible. I keep thinking it is a growth spurt and soon he will settle into a schedule, but I’m beginning to wonder. We are fast approaching the 8 week mark for the “G-Man” (as Travis & Jack so affectionately call him) and if I’d let him he would eat every 45 minutes most of the day. I wonder where such a long and skinny boy puts all that milk?
Jack too likes to eat. Our latest family favorite is to make blueberry pancakes on the weekend. Poor Daddy doesn’t get too many pancakes. Jack & Mommy are the little piggies who eat up most of them and Daddy is left with scraps! (Jack IS a growing boy and since Mommy is feeding someone else every 45 minutes, she needs lots of sustenance!) Blueberry pancakes are quite an adventure though, take a look at the aftermath on Jack.
Lately when you ask Jack what he wants for dinner, you receive a swift reply of “ICE CREAM”! I think this makes Daddy very happy. At last Travis has someone to share his ice cream addiction with. Generally Jack and Travis share their ice cream (I like chocolate & peanut butter, so I can’t share with Jack) but occasionally we let Jack have his very own ice cream. Since Daddy had to leave on a business trip Monday, we made a special outing to Dairy Queen where Jack had his own cone. The picture tells the rest of the story!
