The Truth (or at least as Ryan tells it)

Since I get the priviledge of giving Heather a break from writing every Sunday, I thought that I would provide some clarity for everyone and give you my version of the truth.

Sawyer may not be doing as well as Heather may want you to think. She might say that he is a little "big" for his age, but the truth is that he has a bit of a weight problem. I have seen him grab Cheerios six at a time and they can get lodged right inbetween two of his chins. You should recognize this picture from our trip to the beach, but now I want to show you the angle that Heather would like to keep hidden. Notice the extra large mid-section.

Sometimes I get nervous while feeding him because of the way that he looks at my fingers like they are vienna sausages. Also it is tough to tell him that meal time is over, I would advise anyone doing so to covering their ears...and watch their fingers.
Not to bring up another problem but you should see the way that Sawyer hits the bottle. I would estimate that he downs 3 or 4 bottles a day and he never goes to bed without one. I have even seen him have one in the car. I am thinking about getting him into a 12 step program, as soon as he can count to 12 that is.

If you are as concerned as I am please make comments to open Heather's eyes to the elephant in the room...before we have another elephant in the room.

Thank you! I will be here every Sunday, and remember to tip your bloggers.

Ok, Ryan, that was GREAT! I was laughing so hard, I had tears! I needed a good laugh after all my hard studying today (and, yes I am just taking a quick study break and then right back to the books!) Sawyer is still so darn cute -- he can get away with a little "chubbiness!" He and Taegen are exact opposites in the eating/food department!

Love, Mom/Gramma Debbie

Hi Guys! This is great - very funny! We miss you guys and I'm so glad you're doing this blog so we can keep up with what's going on in your lives. Sometimes when Cade is talking about Savannah, I'll set him up at the computer watching your picture slideshow. Heather - How are you after your medical ordeal?? I'm so sorry you had to go through that. Hopefully we can chat soon. love, Annie & the other Schilperoorts

Dear Abbie "Ryan"
While your struggles deal with a child who will not stop eating, I have a child who doesnt want to eat. I think she might be anorexic (sp). What do you suggest?
