Eden had her 9 Month appt yesterday with Dr. Herriott. She weighed in at a whopping 14lb 5oz (still less than the 3rd percentile). On the contrary - her height was 27.5 inches (almost 50%) - what can I say - she is her daddy's child - tall and skinny! Dr. Herriott was pleased with how she looked, though we are still reaching for ideas to help her gain weight more. She suggested adding oil and butter to her solids.. yummm yummmm. Pretty much all those "bad" things you're not suppose to do to fruits and veggies, she wants me to do with Eden's! She does love solids and would much rather eat from a spoon than her bottle. So during feeding therapy we're trying to get her to drink from a cup - and she actually is taking to it pretty well (though its probably not what you're picturing). As long as she stays on her own little growth curve - we'll be pleased.
