Boys. I have two of them. Both are off the charts on the height and weight scale for their ages. I have always attributed this to the size of Eric and I. As a baby Eric was a tank and so are my boys. One word: thick. Their appetites have always amazed me. Ethan is hungry at all times of the day. I blame this on type-1, but Eric says it's just a boy thing. The kid is 4 and eats more than I do. The other day when we went to Chicago, Ethan ate:
Breakfast: 2 eggos waffles, yogurt, milk
Lunch: 2 corn dogs, applesauce, a few chips, water
Dinner: Cheeseburger, apple dippers, a few fries
4th meal: Chicken strips, grapes, crackers, crystal light
He probably even had a second snack in there somewhere. What's interesting is that he has leaned out recently, and it is becoming difficult to find a spot to insert his pump. He seriously eats like a 16 year old and has no fat on him. I keep telling myself to limit him but Eric thinks it's normal. I think it is all going to catch up to him - who's right?
