Really, I'm not avoiding you

I've just had a very boring last few days, and nothing much to say, really. The Boy has been sleeping through to 5:30/6am....but this has been going on for two weeks now, people. And only about a third of the the nights has he slept all the way through to 7:30/8. I have no idea what is going on, although he does want to nurse, but seems more sleepy than anything. Usually, he nurses at 8am,12pm,4pm, and 7:30ish, and goes to bed around 8. He also eats about 8oz of baby food at the first three times. Tonight we tried moving his 4pm meal part to 6:30pm, and then nursing at 8. Maybe it will help him stay a little fuller through the night. This kid is nursing PLUS eating at least 24oz of food each day. By the way, he is huge, and has to be over 25lb. We'll try weighing him this weekend to see for certain. So, being that he is the size of a two year old, how much does an average two year old eat in a day? Anyone, anyone?

I think it's at least half a horse and a bushel of apples. It's either that or nothing because they're having way too much fun on the trampoline/Jupiter jump/mini-blind cord.

Don't feel bad, my 8 month old is at least 21 or more pounds and he gets an 8 oz bottle at 7:30, 12, 4:30, and 8pm just before bed. He gets jar food around 8:30am, 12:30pm, and 6:30 pm. Sometimes he only eats half a jar but sometimes he eats 2 JARS! I think he's gonna eat us out of house and home someday. I just recently weaned him.

I wanted to go a whole year nursing The Boy, but I'm thinking that I'll need to wean him earlier due to the fact that my milk supply just isn't what it was. He already gets a supplementary bottle after he nurses, and doesn't seem to mind at all.
