Growth Spurt?

Okay so yes I am going to post this....Is it a growth spurt or what?!?

So as you all know Caleb is our first child and we have delved into the world of eating (so we are trying to figure out how much a child of his age would typically eat)...A wonderful world! He is finally eating by mouth and now lets me know when he is hungry by signing eat. Of course, we started off slow but he now eats three meals a day with snacks in between and this is all based upon when he signs to me that he is hungry. Here is a sample of what he ate yesterday:

Breakfast: Bowl full of Oatmeal
Lunch: Toddler Tray with 3/4 cup of a pudding snack
Snack (hour after lunch): another pudding cup
Dinner: another Toddler tray
First snack: HUGE bowl of ice cream
Second snack: Two toddler fruit bars
He signed that he was still hungry after the second snack, but I thought that was more than enough for a child his age?!? Am I wrong? Yoi this kiddo can eat (LOVE saying that)!
He still cannot chew so we have to cut things up for him and we are working on the drinking. I did get him to take multiple gulps of apple juice yesterday and the day before, so hopefully this is a sign too that we are getting close to getting him to drink. We shall see!
God Bless you all!!
God Bless Caleb!!

Awesome job!!! That is huge progress!

(What by the way is a "toddler tray?")

Has he passed a swallow study for fluids?
