My sweet little boy is 5 years old today!! I just can't believe it. He has changed in so many ways recently that I am having a hard time keeping up. I think the biggest, and hardest, change for me is that he actually eats like a boy now. He has always been a picky eater who didn't require a lot of food or drink, therefor we have always had to push him to eat a little more and to try new things. Well, all of a sudden a few weeks ago we went on an outing and I didn't have nearly enough food with us for him!! I felt so awful that I couldn't give him anything else to eat when he was still hungry. It is so difficult now to bring enough food for him when we are away from home, and I always feel I am putting too much on his plate, but he eats everything every single time. It's just amazing that he lost 1 pound after his surgery (since he was a lightweight to begin with, this actually halved his percentage!!) and has now gained 3 pounds in the last 3 weeks!! We assume this is related to his tonsils and adenoids coming out, but who knows. Maybe he can actually taste his food now!!
I thought it would be fun to do a little interview with him about what he likes and doesn't like, so here goes:
