My Little Shrimp Loves Shrimp

Even though we did this last night as well (see post below), it deserves its own post. We went to Red Lobster last night for dinner because we are shrimp fanatics and they are having their "endless shrimp" fest right now. Hannah ate EIGHTEEN shrimp all by herself.....and she wanted more (or "myrr", as she likes to say) but I had to say no because she had also eaten a biscuit, a lot of my salad, 2 or 3 mushrooms stuffed with lobster, and a few bites of my steak. She ate more shrimp than my mother-in-law did. I was afraid that she was going to barf. I just couldn't believe it. I wasn't really introduced to shrimp until I met my husband, so the fact that my daughter is in love with shrimp scampi is amazing to me. My family is not really big into sea food, but I've certainly become a fan since I met my husband (although I'm still having a hard time with fish, but I like shell fish). Anyway, Hannah is definitely her daddy's daughter!

She ate 18 shrimp...are you serious!?! I can't believe that little body can hold all that food. We went to Red Lobster while we were in Utah and Jake had the all you can eat shrimp. I actually tried it and to be honest, it was pretty good. I liked the scampi and the fried shrimp. It's the texture that gets to me but I'm sure I can learn to get over it.

Wow... you've got a little shrimp lover. I actually have some salmon in my fridge that I'm going to cook up soon-- my first attempt at cooking seafood. I just tried the orange shrimp at PF changs and it was pretty good. I still think I would prefer the chicken though.

Hey! So cute that Hannah likes shrimp, that's a great picture! She's a good eater! That's awesome. I noticed on the video for Hannah's birthday that you had had a c-section, but i never knew and kept wondering what had happened with you after i saw that. I guess they didn't give me enough drugs, so i felt "more" than they normally like, but my recovery has actually been really good so far. I don't know what I weigh now. im kind of curious. thanks for your comment! Yeah, totally worth it!
