Uh, oh...we're in trouble!

It seems that our little Johnathan has his daddy's big appetite. That boy can eat! I don't know where he puts it all, and I'm constantly amazed at how much he can chow down. For example, tonight he had 1) a whole turkey sandwich...two pieces of meat between two slices of wheat bread...with mustard!...2) a baby banana...3) about 1/4 cup of peas...and 4) two cubes of spinach/chicken...homemade by me! And then afterward, while I was trying to recreate his meal for a picture, he was still making his hungry fuss so he had some banana Puffs! Can you imagine an almost 1 year old eating all of that?!! Maybe it's normal, but it sure seems like a lot to me. Here are the pictures of his "meal" and some pics of him as he enjoyed his food.

Of course I didn't feed him the veggies still frozen, like here in the pic, but I just wanted you to have an idea of the amount of food. It's a lot, right?!!
Finishing up a yummy meal!
Ooh, getting frustrated...give me more food!
All done!
Sweetest smile...gotta love those cute little teeth!
I love this crooked little smile!
He was really starting to ham it up for the camera!
I'm happy when my belly's full!!!

He's a growin' boy, Mamma! Actually, that's about the norm for our daughter. You should have seen her plate over the 4th of July weekend (just before she was a year) at Darin's parents house. She ate a FULL plate with a hot dog, beans, corn, watermelon, canteloupe, and then had room for a cookie from her sneaky grandpa. Her 13 month old male cousin ate like a bird on the other hand...quite embarassing when your girl's shoving a handful of beans in her mouth and he's barely eating anything. She still eats like that most of the time...almost as much as me sometimes. As long as it's lots of healthy stuff, veggies, fruit, and meat, then I say let 'em eat. Zoe LOVES her veggies and fruit, so I'm ok with her huge appetite. :-)
