Milkaholic

Cornett & Company flew to Mexico yesterday, an interesting day of travel for us all. Jude was up early, four hours before his usual wake-up time, and didn´t really have a chance to nap much to catch up, so we made an executive decision to let him have as much milk as he wanted during the course of the long travel day. He usually drinks about 20 ounces, sometimes up to 25. Yesterday he drank FIFTY FIVE ounces of milk. We were amazed that he could get that much liquid through his system, but I think he might have had even more if we had offered it. On the airplane it was unlimited, otherwise just the usual amount.

Upon reaching our hotel room, we stripped him out of his sweaty travel clothes and let him run around naked for a few minutes. Jude christened the room with a huge puddle of urine. This is the first time he´s had a major accident outside of his diaper, and we all just started laughing. Luckily it´s a tile floor and cleaned up pretty easily. He looked so shocked to see that much liquid coming out of his body. I wish I had a picture of the expression on his face.

We´re having a great time on vacation, but I´m just using the hotel computer, so no photos until we return home. Jude loves the beach and waves and there are lots of toddlers at the resort, so everything is working out really well so far. I´ll try to post more later in the week.

WOW 55 oz!! That's amazing! He's a calcium fanatic! Great teeth on that one! :-) Sounds like the flight wasn't too bad, and funny story about the peeing on the floor (especially in light of our still unsuccessful potty training attempts...). Have fun!

nice! have a wonderful time! We took Nora down to Mazatlan over Thanksgiving and it was a blast. She's wake up every morning and pass out swimsuits - she loved the kiddie pool at our hotel.
