Addison went and had her check up last week, just a week after I freaked out and insisted she was sick from her air conditioner cough. We headed out to see Dr. D on Tuesday of last week, and got all kinds of awesome updates.
Addie is still just a tad under 10 pounds, but I am sure she is over by now, as she was 9 pounds 13.5 ounces last week. I had to put the .5 in there, because I think that is just as important as the 9 pounds. Her doctor was over the moon with her weight gain, as am I.
All of my kids really thinned out in their first months of life, and were slow gainers, but Addie has kept her adorable chubby cheeks, and started developing those cute little baby rolls we all just want to eat up.
She is also up to 22 and a half inches! I couldn’t believe it, but I also knew she really was getting bigger since she grew out of all her newborn clothes. Tear.
But in the past week she has also started an awesome new trick. I am sure both the boys did it, but I don’t remember for the life of me… I think these years are all starting to blend together.
She is now doing little mini baby crunches… or trying to pick her head up all on her own from a laying down, or sitting position. I first noticed it early last week when my oldest son came to me going “Mommy LOOK! Addie is trying to get up!” While I was under the impression she was out like a light in her swing while I was eaten by a pile of laundry in the toddlers room.
It is so funny to see her doing all the things she is supposed to be doing at almost 3 months old, but being so tiny! I guess that is what happens when your mom is a whole 4 feet 10 inches tall, and you clearly are taking after her…
I can hope my boys take after their father right?
Now we wait till September to head back to the Pediatrician, and I can’t help but wonder how much she will weigh by then. I know for breastfed babies, I shouldn’t really focus on her weight all that much, but I can’t help it when I had two older children with serious weight gain issues in the first months of their lives. I am simply over cautious.
Do you track your little ones weight?
