Eleven Ounces

Our little girl is in the midst a growth spurt. I was on the case today while her mom attended Forrest High School's graduation, and that little lima bean put down eleven ounces of milk in under three hours. That's unbelievable.

That's like eating the meal of many meats, all by oneself. Then polishing it off with a meatball sundae and a barbecued-shrimp Blizzard.

Crazy! But the upside is that she'll be strong when the dead pitch up out of the earth and stumble through the streets, trying to nom my grey matter...

Thats a lot of milk. I was amazed when my daughter would pack away alot of food untill I had to clean up her "Byproduct". Sure you had fun with that one.

Afternoon, Courtney,

Yeah, those byproducts can be stunning in their own right. Lots of nice earth tones, with a variety of...um, textures...

I'm amazed at how they eat. She put down four ounces last night like it was a handful of peanuts at the bar--slurp, slurp, gone.

Take care...
