15 Months Skinny

Again with the time travel....

(Don't worry...this should be it!)

Catherine turned 15 months on the 24th. We took a visit to Dr. L on the 25th.

It was a pretty good visit. He told me what I already knew...she is SKIN-NY! She only weighs 19 lbs (5th percentile) and is 31 1/4 inches long (60th percentile). So, of course, I felt like a bad mom. But, we talked about her eating habits. She snacks all day long. She also carries around a cup of milk all day. But, she doesn't eat much at meals.

Dr. L said that we should not stop her from eating small portions throughout the day, as this is a very healthy habit. But, since she isn't eating much at meals, I can't let her have her cup during the day. (this has been TOUGH!). We are also adding Carnation Instant Breakfast to her milk at meals. So far, this has really seemed to help. She is eating more at meals and has already gained 4 ounces.

On to the happy stuff!

  • pillow fights
  • wallowing on anyone who will let her
  • telling her sisters "NO-NO"
  • climbing on everything
  • dancing
  • corn
  • singing
  • slashing in the tub
  • being held
  • mac n' cheese
  • Emma
  • Hannah
  • being thrown up HIGH
  • spaghetti
  • playing outside
  • jumping on the trampoline/bed/couch
  • peas
  • sitting down in the tub
  • being told "NO-NO"
  • coming inside
  • sitting in her highchair
  • when Mommy leaves the room
  • not having her cup all day
  • roast
  • being put down
  • when her sisters lock her out of their room
  • strangers
  • pickles
Catherine is still carrying her baby and sucking that thumb. But, if you ask me, she is growing up WAY too fast. She is at such a FUN stage (very challenging to keep out out of things!).
