Hungy hungry hippo

The littlest dude isn’t so little these days. Slade is over nine pounds, which might not sound big, but that’s a six-pound gain from three months ago. I’m not surprised, really. The kid eats well.

Take yesterday. When I left for work, Slade was nursing, and when I returned in the evening, Sally was giving him a fortified bottle.

“How’d Slade do today?” I asked.

“Same old,” she said. “I think he ate all day long.”

An hour later, Slade was grunting and smacking and fussing for more.

    They do grow fast! Just remember what goes in must come out.

    Eli looks so proud! They look great! Hope Mommy and Daddy are holding up. You guys have your hands full with those two trouble makers!

    D–What’s alarming is that what’s coming in is not coming out. Tick, tick, tick. A diaper blowout is imminent.

    Thanks for the kind thoughts, Laura.
