We finally made it back to the doctor to do a weight gain check for Grace on Wednesday. Back in January Grace registered a 4 ounce weight gain in a 3 month time period. So they gave us a month and we had to come back to check and see where things stood.
As in.. I think the doctor realizes my tall and skinny husband helped make a tall and skinny baby. Grace went from 17 pounds 6 ounces to 18 pounds 4 ounces in a month. Which was a jump from the third percentile to the fifth.
I hate the crazy amount of pressure that came with her weight being checked. I cried after the appointment in January. Hello, I am responsible for our sweet girls nutrition as she still breastfeeds.. and I prepare all of her other meals. After a long reassuring chat with my husband though I cut myself some slack.
Being a mom is hard y'all.
We go back at the end of April for her 15-month well baby check. Hopefully we will see more progress and this whole walking game will not deter the gaining weight game.
Wish us luck!
