With Alex, I would have worried about how unhealthy that food was. And though I do get the turkey bacon and the all-natural sausage for him, I really don't think too much about it.
Because, 1 year ago, he wasn't eating anything.
And as you can see below, he went from being the fattest baby on earth at 2 months and in the 98th percentile...
...to being a rather skinny-looking toddler in the 13th percentile at 15 months.

That's when Derek started on formula for the first time in his little life. For he was a boob man. And because of his tendency to be allergic to the world, his momma got the priveledge of eating the world's crappiest diet for a year.

So for over a year now, Derek has been drinking the Elecare, and racking up these receipts for said substance. Care to guess the total cost??
Yes, I counted the right amount of zeros.
I do believe that it should be illegal for 15 months of formula to cost that much, don't you?
And you know what else?
No matter what I hear from other folks who don't appreciate military healthcare, I will never rip Tricare.
Because they have paid for every.single.drop.
And since eating is still a bit of a challenge for Derek, if he wants to strip down and roll around in a pool of bacon, I say okay. As long as he eats some while he's in there.
2) These are my handsome guys all ready for church and taking a moment to read the always-riveting Little White Duck.
Hey D, do you ever get tired of that book?
I'll take that as a no.
3) This is what you end up with when you realize it's Jan 28th, you don't have a 2010 calendar, and you take your 4-year-old daughter with you to get one.
Oh well, at least it was marked down to $2.50.
4) Does this happen to you?
5) Alex and Derek have been disappearing into their bedrooms and playing together, nicely, for long stretches of time. So I choose to ignore that this is what happens while they're in there.
6) I keep feeling as if there's something I should be doing right now, but I can't quite put my finger on it.
