Growth Spurt




I've been told now by a couple of medical professionals that Tate may go through a growth spurt now that he's had his surgery. Well, I think he is! All he wants to do it eat and sleep! He is playing and just enjoying life more, but eating at the same time. He eats the hugest breakfast ever...it's unbelievable...then he eats a snack between breakfast and lunch and prefers to munch on chex cereal or crackers or something between that. At lunch he's at daycare and apparently is eating like a horse. He wants to eat the second he gets home from daycare...THE SECOND HE GETS HOME! Tonight he ate 8 chicken nuggets, a can of green beans (yes, a whole can), apple sauce, cheese, a piece of bread and butter and 2 oreos (I know, the oreos weren't necessary)...he was saying "more" and I decided I needed to stop answering to his "more" request. So he got down and headed right to grab a box of Rice Chex and sat down on the living room floor and started eating those! He's seriously a bottomless pit! I didn't think this was supposed to start until the teenage years! Between him and Sean, they are going to eat us broke!!!

As far as the sleeping part, he's been going down GREAT since his surgery...I know it's because he can finally breath! He naps for WAY longer than usual and I no longer say that it's uncommon for him to sleep for 3 or 3 1/2 hours for his nap. Before I was lucky to get him down for a nap for 1 1/2 hours.

So anyway, I'm going to say it's a growth spurt...I hope it is. :)

I'm just wondering how big of surprises you guys are going to be finding in his diapers after eating that much.

Wow! That is so good! I am so happy that he is doing so well!
You can imagine that the last comment left by Lora and James wasn't me!
Anyways, he looks very happy and healthy. I wish Ava would eat just even a third of that! I miss you guys and can't wait to see you.
Love you,
Lora
