My son could be a human advertisement for Kirby vacuums. I'm not sure they have those around anymore, but my parents had one when I was little, so I'll use it as my reference for today's post. Since our last name is Kirby...it works. Jack is a human vacuum when it comes to his appetite. He will eat until we stop giving him food! Even his grandmother and great-grandma have commented how they've "never seen a child eat like Jack" before.
For example: We have eaten out a couple of times this weekend and Jack's eaten almost entire kids meals each time. On Saturday we went to IHOP (one of my faves) and Jack had a whole meal consisting of 5 silver dollar pancakes, 2 scrambled eggs, and sausage. PLUS while he was waiting on his food he ate 4 banana teether cookies and a handful of puffs and a whole cup of silk (soy milk). And I think he could've continued, but it was all gone.
Last night we went to Tom Fooleries for Happy Hour (GREAT deals even if you're not actually drinking at Happy Hour). He had the grilled cheese kids meal and ate the WHOLE thing...some of the pickle included! He even got to have his first popsicle, as that was the dessert the kids get with their meals. He loved the bomb pop! I thought for sure he wouldn't do too well with the cold, but he just kept on sucking on it. It was too cute. His daddy added, "You've inherited your mother's sweet tooth." :)
It's been fun being able to eat out as a family and not have to take a separate meal for Jack. I'm thankful for his hearty appetite and I definitely won't be complaining about a picky eater any time soon. I'm going to enjoy his willingness to eat whatever we give him now, because I'm sure he'll turn picky one of these days.
Until next time...
