Tall and Skinny.

by - 9:00 PM

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.

She passed.

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!

  1. I am so glad it went well!! She is such a cutie :)

  2. Some babies are just skinny babies. I vote that healthy is better than a weight percentile.

  3. It is so hard not to blame yourself but I am so glad she passed this month! Wells is in the 29% for weight at 18m and the doctors are always telling me that he needs more calories but boyfriend eats all day and runs all day!

  4. It is hard not to blame yourself but you are doing great! Wells is tall and skinny too and the doctors are always telling me to give him more calories, but boyfriend eats all day and runs all day!

  5. Hang in there. You're doing great!

  6. I knew she'd be fine! You are a great mom <3
