Every parent is shocked at one time or another by the amount of food that your child consumes during a meal in the middle of a growth spurt. This morning Arabella ate an entire scrambled egg (screw separating the yolk from the whites-she eats both), a large handful of avocado, a huge slice of green tea pound cake from Japan, two slices of cheese, and two handfuls of Gerber puffs. You can tell that originally her breakfast consisted of just the egg and avocado. Once I watched her pound that and look around for more I started scrounging in the refrigerator and pantry for whatever was quick, edible for a one year old, and fast. She's kind of like a hungry ogre that can flip out if she's still hungry and the last bite has just been swallowed and tray is empty. So I quickly fed her more. I couldn't believe it!
