Happy 18 Maevey Baby!
Height 31 inches (5th %)
Weight 19.9 pounds (5th %)
The pediatrician has been muy annoying to me in regards to Maeve and her growth. I took a peak at her chart and saw "failure to thrive" written in bold letters and I almost choked! She's perfect, beautiful, climby, smart, chatty, sleeps well, interacts with others, eats well...
She. Is. Just. SMALL.
I've been telling the ped. over and over--she's happy, eats well, sleeps well--she's just shaped just like her father!
She's small! She's fine!
So this visit, she's finally gained some weight (b/c we haven't had the stomach bug or ear infections in a few weeks and she's had an appetite!) and the doctor says:
"Whoa! Time to stop gaining weight now! I guess she's healthy but just smaller than other kids..."
I'VE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR 9 MONTHS NOW!!!!
LISTEN TO MEEEEE PEOPLE!
Whew. Sorry about that. I just couldn't believe that once the kid finally gains weight I get a "don't let her gain too much" lecture.
Those people are never happy.
Praise the Lord for a healthy, happy, active baby girl.
So glad my next appt isn't for another 6 months!
