Carter ate FIVE waffles for breakfast....and a yogurt, and his homo milk. I figured out that he got about 20 grams of fat from the magarine alone. Breakfast is the meal that we can cram all of the fat/calories in that he needs. It has always been his best meal. We rotate between pancakes/waffles, hot flavoured oatmeal, and cold cereal. For some reason, toast and eggs are unappealing to him...I don't blame him for the eggs, but I don't understand how a person doesn't like toast? Lunch is usually useless in our house. I have to strongly encourage Carter to eat a small amount. He has taken to requesting a "lunch snack" instead of "lunch." I guess his breakfast sustains him through the whole day! By suppertime he usually eats an acceptable amount. However, his bedtime snack is the time he becomes a ravenous eating machine once again. It is normal for him to consume an applesauce cup (or 2), a yogurt, a couple of bearpaw cookies, some apple slices, and then complain that he is still hungry!!
Carter is going to be 5 in January. He weighs 37 pounds, which is not bad....but it is a constant struggle for him to gain weight. My husband and I were looking through some old pictures from Carter's babyhood the other day. It is amazing, looking back, at how far he has come.
