Breakfast of Champions

Avocados and Bananas.

It’s his favorite breakfast.
He loves feeding himself,  and I love it too. It will keep him occupied for a good 30 minutes.

Someone made a comment to me the other day that my son was too skinny. Like, I don’t feed him enough or something. I’m depriving him of food. The poor kid probably only eats three meals a day, has milk every 4 or 5 hours, and then all night long.

He eats an entire banana and half an avocado at 9:00am. He is not skinny. He’s perfect!

I think he’s doing just fine.

  1. That's my son's fav too! But I smush it up and feed it to him. I think it's time for him to do it himself like Lucas!

    He is NOT too skinny! Look at those wonderful baby rolls on his arms!

  2. He's a growing boy! Look at those cutey-pie folds, not tiny but just right 🙂 I only wish people thought my folds were cutey-pie 😉

    D-man isn't in to the mushy foods, but he does feed himself. Dried bananas & strawberries are his favs right now. Yum.

  3. I always get told my 8 mnth old son is too skinny. Well, he's tall. He eats like a little piggy! He's super active and burns off calories as fast as he gets them in!
    Really, people are so “helpful” aren't they??

  4. As long as they are content, who cares what others think. If they are hungry, they'll eat. If not, they'll refuse.

    I love his baby rolls… my favorite; something I miss in my own little ones 🙂

    And really, why is that people feel like they need to provide their unsolicited opinions?!?

  5. Holy cow! He's way chubbier than my baby and she eats a TON!! She is pretty slender but that's ok, every baby is different. Your lil guy looks just perfect! Love the baby chub!

  6. Oh yeah he looks great to me!! My kids love avocado's too…we usually just slice them in the skin of the avocado and then sprinkle a little garlic salt on them…yummy!!

  7. It amazes me what silly things people will say about babies and children. Not every baby needs to be super pudgy. And he is totally adorable and perfect!

  8. Also, the doc tells me Jordan's too skinny and everyone else tells me he's chubby. I think he's just right. He eats and he's active, so “whatever” to all those opinionated people!

  9. Too skinny?
    I was just admiring his baby chub when I read that…

    He's too cute, and absolutely perfect!

    Avocado and bananas must be a favorite among most little ones… They don't last long in our house!

  10. He is NOT skinny! My first thought when seeing the first picture of this post was “Look at those chubby little arms!”

    With my first child, a lady at the WIC office told me she was too big. That she shouldn't have chubby wrists. With my second child, I have been told by several people that she is too skinny. I have learned to ignore everyone that makes comments because no one but me knows how much or how often my children eat. You are doing a great job and have a healthy looking little man. Don't let other's comments bother you. Keep doing what you are doing with confidence, you are a great momma!
