When it came to naming each of our children, my husband was allowed little to no input.
It's not that I didn't want input. It's that he was completely incapable of being serious during any of the baby name discussions.
Most of his name suggestions came from The Lord of the Rings. With choices like Galadriel and Bilbo, I'm sure you can understand why I didn't take him seriously.
But as I have gotten to know my son, I am starting to think that perhaps Samwise Gamgee was not such an off the wall suggestion. I am pretty sure that John might be a hobbit. He doesn't have unusually hairy feet, nor is he abnormally (or even normally) short. But his eating habits are definitely becoming more and more hobbit-ish by the day.
Here is his normal food schedule:
Wake up. Immediately have breakfast.
An hour later, have second breakfast.
An hour and a half after that, it is time for elevensies, which is then quickly followed by lunch.
By 12 o'clock, it is completely normal for him to have eaten 4 times! And I don't mean a cracker here or a few grapes there. I mean two waffles, followed by a whole banana and a carton of yogurt. And that is just first breakfast!
The other day, I put him in his high chair for dinner at 5:45. At 6:30, he was still eating!
I don't know where he puts it.
The kid barely weighs 21 lbs.
Where is the food going!?
