9 month check up and other things



Olivia went for her check-up yesterday with Dr. B. And I was suspecting, she had all but fallen off of the growth curve (the 1 %). She only weighs 14 pounds 12 ounces. Ever more reason I am done breastfeeding...so I can fatten my sweet princess up! I will admit, it is a little frustrating that my body doesn't seem to be able to provide my babies what they need. I am always jealous of moms who have these fat breastfed babies and often wonder what I'm doing wrong that neither one of my kids gained much weight on breastmilk. Oh well! She also didn't gain any inches in length either. I assume the medical tech weighed her wrong at her 6 month check up. I truly don't believe she isn't any longer. Fatter, yes, longer, no I don't believe that. Olivia also has eczema on her back. Carter had it too but he developed it earlier and didn't have it on his back. Weird. These kids of mine are really different!

In other Olivia news, she slept the whole night last night! I have officially stopped nursing and I don't know if that is what did the trick or what. But of course, Carter was up multiple times last night. I am truly convinced God is punishing me for something, I just don't know what. Literally, every single night over the past 9 months that Olivia has slept without waking up much, Carter is up all night! Ughh! I'm going to get white noise machines for both of their rooms. enough is enough!

Miss Priss is also loving her some table food. She ate green beans off my plate yesterday and tomatoes and french bread. Carter was really old before he would eat table food but maybe that was my fault for not offering it to him more. But I think Olivia will be off of baby food a lot sooner.

Yesterday, the weather was finally gorgeous (after having several days of 40-50 degree temps and us having the heat on in our house! YUCK!) We headed to the "spinny park" as Carter calls it. There were a TON of kids there. I was a little nervous about being able to keep up with him but eventually the daycare left and all was calm again. I forgot the sunscreen so I was trying my best to park myself and Olivia in the shade. No sunburns for either of us so I guess it worked! I will post our park pictures later but for some reason, blogger is not wanting to cooperate right now!

Olivis looks plentty healthy to me, Jaime. Don't worry too much about those growth charts. Every child is different. As long as she's healthy and happy, you are doing something right. Can't wait to see you next week.
