Number crunching

Dude had his 9-month well-baby visit today. He's 90% of the way to doubling his birth weight. I don't know what it is with my kids; I bake 'em extra long, they start out a more-than decent size, then they just plummet starting around 6 months. Not that I'm worried or anything, Perp did exactly the same thing, and Dude is probably going to beat her 12-month weight (18 lb), but it is sort of odd to me. So that's like half a pound a month. A bit on the slow side, but he's crawling like a madman and burning hella calories so frankly, I should be jealous.

Stupid fast metabolism baby.

can you email me the name of your doc ? oh wait -- is your doc different than dude's ped?

dd2 plateaued from about mid-summer until sept. Good thing bc I was worried she would be in 3T before dd1 was out.

I forgot to add: I love my kids doc, but want a female gen-practioner for myself.
