You have to forgive me this week for being a bit lazy.
I haven't had the time to browse all my favorite blogs. I apologize for not saying hello!
This week seems like I can't quite get a handle on life. The house has been a constant state of mess even though I feel like I am constantly cleaning and tidying. I feel like I have been running in circles and getting nowhere! I have failed on the exercise this week. I have the energy of a sloth! Whoa is me. Snap out of it already! Quick where is coffee or mmm Diet Pespi?
A couple days ago I went to the health clinic where Sophia gets her immunizations. My friend and I stopped in before heading to the mall to get our babies weight checked. Sophia was last weighed at her Dr's at 9 months. She weighed 17.5 pounds. In my head I was thinking Sophia weighed at least 20 pounds. Maybe even more. She seems so big to me these days. I get her undressed and place her on the scale press the magic button and lo and behold she weighs 17 pounds and 14 ounces. WHAAAATT! How can she have only gained a few ounces?!?!? My mouth became dry and guilt kicked in. It has been 2 long months and my baby basically weighs the same.
How is this possible?
Yes she is a finicky eater.
Yes she did go through a 'hunger strike' a while ago.
I know she has gotten taller. All her pants fit in length and are huge in the waist.
A problem I wish I had not my daughter!!
I know she is healthy. She is full of energy and is happy. She has radiant skin. She eats what she wants and as much as she wants. When she is done she is done. I do not force the situation.
She has her one year check up next month. As much as I wanted to run and scream towards the Doctors office I have resisted. With much talk from my sister and mom I now feel less stressed about the whole thing. I know she is healthy! Maybe just maybe she has a speedy metabolism and won't have the same curse I have in life with weight. I hope so.
I went out and bought a bunch of new foods that I hope Sophia will like. I gave her peanut butter yesterday for the first time. It went over ok, she gulped down milk with her PB sandwich. Cute.
Oh right I named this Post 'Mommy and Me - Self Portrait'. Here is why. We attempted yesterday to get a photo together. Remember how I can only get pictures of the top of Sophia's head. Well now when I do get a picture of her face...her eyes are closed. Lord have mercy.
HAHAHAHA So Funny!
