Imagine when they’re 16

My sweet little 16 month old boys….man can you eat. In all honesty, I think you’re (both) going through a growth spurt. However I’m starting to fear get a glimpse of what our grocery bill life will be like when you’re 16 years old. It’s no secret the cost of groceries has gone up, and we are buying more groceries all the time, but I never in my wildest dreams thought that you would be able to eat as much as you do at this age. For example:

On Wednesday
Breakfast: toast, banana, oatmeal, blueberry waffle, milk
Snack: Miscellaneous stuff (cheese, raisins, goldfish, etc.)
Lunch: 1/2 an avocado, an entire sea bass (I heated more up 3 times), leftover mac n’ cheese, leftover crack soup (i.e. Healthy Kid’s Campbell’s soup that you eat like it’s crack), cookie, mandarin orange slices, milk
Afternoon snack: two bowls of yogurt with apple sauce
Dinner: breakfast burritos (minus the tortilla), potatoes, blueberries, milk

On Thursday
Breakfast: toast, banana, oatmeal, blueberry waffle, milk
Snack: Miscellaneous stuff (cheese, raisins, goldfish, etc.)
Lunch: 1/2 an avocado, 1/4 pan of baked spaghetti, whole can of crack soup, 1/2 bowl of homemade stew, green beans, cookie, milk
Afternoon snack: two bowls of yogurt with apple sauce
Dinner: lamb chops, 1/2 pan of cheesy potatoes, green beans, raspberries

You two right basically eat the same amount of dinner that Ben and I do. Meals with leftovers are a thing of the past.

I just can’t imagine what it will be like when you’re 16. By the way, for future reference, you are never allowed to bring friends over for dinner–unless they bring their own food. It’s very apparent that we have boys already…excuse me…dudes.

 

 

 

Avocado Face

The boys tried their first solid food last night. We chose avocado since: 1) we were having tacos for dinner, and 2) who doesn’t like avocado? They ate about 1/2 teaspoon each, and were more perplexed at what we were doing to them than being interested in the actual food. Regardless it’s a start and made for some pretty cute photos:

Ummmm…. Yeah, it’s pretty good.
