The Sweet Potato Continues to Rule

My baby has one heck of an appetite! Yesterday at Grandma & Grandpa Neyer's she ate half a smashed sweet potato for lunch. About 3 hours later she drank a six ounce bottle and then inhaled 2 ounces of acorn squashed mixed with the other half of the sweet potato. My god...that's a lot. Isn't it? Have I been inadvertently starving my darling babe? Really, all evidence is to the contrary. Her wrists look like stuffed sausages and her ankles have rolls. She could store berries and nuts in her cheeks if necessary. Nonetheless, I am going to start giving her some more food and see how it goes.

As I have been typing this she has devoured another half a sweet potato and still seems hungry. Now it's on to some yogurt....maybe for dinner tonight we'll grill her up an 8 ounce filet mignon.
Oooh, steak for dinner. I think that might be a good idea.

sweet potatoes rule!


Wow, she really is Stan's girl! (Ask Stan about his appetite when he was a baby.)

Jessica, you seem to talk about food all the time. Even Kate's last name is Cheeseman.

Don't let her become a statistic :)

You brought back a great memory -
When Bryan was a baby I had to take him to the doctor. He turned orange from eating so many sweet pototoes, carrots, and squash. :)
Some how I had to figure out how not to feed him these things. Good Luck!
