How Much SHOULD a 9 month old eat?

I have no idea the answer to this question. Brooks is still nursing several times a day (5-7), but the dude eats like a horse. One day for breakfast last week he ate, an egg, ¼ of an avocado, ½ cup of strawberries and a banana. He doesn’t eat like this all the time, but it’s not unusual.

Upon returning from our camping trip we had nothing thawed in the house, so we decided to continue our mini vacation to one of my favorite restaurants, Hooters. Normally this is not the place who find synonymous with my name, but I LOVE Hooters 3-mile Island chicken wings, and since I can have gluten and dairy again it was such a nice treat.

We decided to order Brooks something off the children’s menu since there was so much heat in the sauce. Got the dude 5 chicken wings, figured he’d eat two and the banana we brought him. We fed him the banana first and gave him some of his O’s while we waited for our food. Once it got there John and I pulled the chicken off the bones and broke it into smaller pieces. Brooks couldn’t get to it soon enough, he was a man on a mission, a man who had “hiked” 5 miles that morning and needed to recharge. He ended up eating all 5 of the chicken wings, sans the skin. He eats like a 3 year old, and he’ll eat just about anything. I hope this continues for forever and eating isn’t a battle at every meal *fingers crossed*.

Here he is lounging in his high chair at Hooters.
