Lunchmouth

Those of you who have been around Sophie know that she loves food. You wouldn't guess by her petite little body, but she can really pack it in. If Steve or I come into the room with food, she'll climb all over us until we give her some. And she won't leave us alone until the food is gone.

(Some times when I'm really hungry and don't feel like giving her half of what I have, I hide in the kitchen and eat so she can't see me. Is that mean?)

This is what she had for lunch today, which is typical:

2 kiwis
1/2 c chopped watermelon
a handful of cheerios
a mini glass pyrex bowl full of applesauce & oatmeal
3/4 of a string cheese

Then two hours later Steve came into the living room with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. She crawled over onto his lap and he gave her about five Sophie-sized bites for every bite that he took. . . until the sandwich was gone.

For her sake, I really hope she inherited my dad's metabolism.

I am amazed at how much she can eat! She probably has a fast metabolism already. I was like that when i was a kid. My dad nicknamed me the 'eating machine' because I could eat more than he could at dinner!

Ha Ha! I love the part about you hiding in the kitchen eating your food cuz I totally do that and feel so guilty! I'm glad I'm not the only one! I laughed out loud when I read that!

If it's mean to hide in the kitchen, JD and I must be terrible too because we do it all the time. We go, take a few bites, go back and feed him some of what we've given him, and go back to the kitchen. If we didn't, we'd starve!

I definitely don't think hiding in the kitchen is mean... as long as you actually feed her when she needs it. :) You are entitled to your own food, too! :)
