I have always said slow and steady wins the race. Josephine agrees!
J-Bean is now 18 lbs., 11 ounces and 32 inches tall.
She has gained 6 ounces in 2 months. Again, it’s a step forward, however small it may be.
You may notice the height number stayed the same. I assure you J-Bean has grown! She has outgrown her 12 month pants. So, I am assuming there was a measurement error in July.
Both the GI Doc and the Pediatrician measured the same.
Keep on goin’, GIRL!!!
Last weight check was 3 weeks ago when I took Josephine in for an ear infection. She was 16 lbs, 14 oz, which was a loss of 1.5 ounces from her weight check at the beginning of April. But Josephine was sick and had a pretty bad infection, so I will just toss it to that.
Happy to report Josephine is back on track and is now 17 POUNDS even!
Every ounce is a celebration.
As an aside: I must take this time to say I just found out about a big loss at our pediatrician’s office. Becky Larsen, a fabulous medical assistant, passed on to Heaven on April 24, 2010, as a result of a blood clot to the heart. She was 36.
I feel the need to mention her on this blog because she was a true fan and supporter of Josephine in so many ways. She brought a smile to my daughter’s face, to mine and to every other patient and staff member that had a chance to know her. I know she will be cheering on “Josephine-A-Bean” from up above.
Rest in Peace, Lovely Rebecca. You will be missed more than you know.
Slow and steady wins the race…that’s the quote, right?
I am happy to say, at 19 months, Josephine is now a whopping 16 lbs., 15.5 oz. A total of 4 ounces gained in 5 weeks.
No, it’s not what I had hoped for, but it’s a gain. And gains are good…gains are good.
Josephine had another weight check today and gained 9 oz. in 2 weeks! She is now at 15 lbs., 7 oz.
That’s our little fighter!
And we are happy to report…2 more teeth on top, totaling 7 teeth now.
