Little Days: Big Appetite

Recently, my mom got the the chance to watch Piper for a bit, giving us a much needed break from the kiddo. And during Piper's stay, G'mi learned some first hand lessons about our girl: She's got a wild mane, a suspicious stare, and a ferocious appetite.

For real. This girl will eat you out of house and home. (where does she get it?!)

While Piper was away, my mom sent updates, along with some pictures, so we'd know everyone was doing ok. She also sent some pictures...apologizing: "Here are some of my favs! So many involve food ...just noticed!" But it was fine by me! I know that a well fed girl is a happy girl...and boy did our girl seem happy. Some highlights from her smorgasbord:


"Went to Wendy's for lunch. Piper ate a Jr cheeseburger but I forgot she doesn't like American cheese. (learned that with a grilled cheese). We peeled it off and she ate the meat and then the bun. Hmmm. Wasn't keen on the fries much until I bought a vanilla frosty and she dipped the SAME fry in over and over and sucked it until it was a mushy mess. Wouldn't let me give her a new fry!"


"I thought she would eat my dinner as she eats Chipotle, but no go. It had corn and beans and chicken etc but we went back to the meatloaf from last night. So here is my question- do you ever cut her off? She ate more meatloaf than Vern and I put together. She just keeps asking for more!"
 

"At the store we picked out frozen mini pancakes and she HAD to hold them and would not let me scan them~ no no no~ I finally did and she then had to hold them the whole way home!"
"She "cooked" in the kitchen while I made dinner which was so cute. 
Vern came home and she wanted papa to taste it. He is just smitten!" 
And from the last email:
"Piper just stood on the scale by herself! 22.4 lb Should I cut out the midnight buffet?"

And deny us that cute that little buddah belly she's working on? No way. Seconds for everyone!

  1. Hooray for healthy appetites! Piper and Maggie should become friends. Maggie eats more than I do.

    I love that your mom welcomed the opportunity of watching Piper so that you and Dustin could have a little time away AND that she sent such great updates! Does she have any interest in watching a 3 and 5 year old? kidding!

  3. Katie's head is in the fridge all day long! She's always grabbing grapes, cucumber slices, or squeezable yogurts and rolling!

    How nice that you guys were able to get some together time away and even nicer that your mom is so more than competent in taking care of Piper for you! Her little Welcome Home note from Piper was heart melting! What a blessing to have someone who takes care of all of you (mothers need so much gentle reassurance when they leave their babies for a time) in that way!

    Piper's sweet belly is adorable.
