Dr. Debbie Downer Strikes Again

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

We took Kenley in for another weight check today. She weighed in at 12 pounds 6.9 ounces. Kenley wasn't very happy with her Mommy when her Mommy took her off of the scale and put a diaper on her and then put her back on the scale for a non-nakey-blog-worthy photo.
{We did learn that a (size 2) diaper adds .6 ounces to her weight so that is why the weight in the picture is different.}

Kenley is still in the 1% weight range but she has dropped below where she was at her last weight check. The Doctor told us that Kenley is a little bit anemic so he prescribed a multi vitamin with iron for her to take once a day. The Dr. never has anything good to tell us so that is why we refer to him as Dr. Debbie Downer :). I am a little leery of giving the multi-vitamin to her because I try to stay away from parabens and methylparaben is one of the ingredients. We are going to Myrtle Beach this weekend though so I think we will try to stop at a natural foods store down there and see if we can find an alternative multi-vitamin for her.

I personally think that she is developing just fine! She babbles all day long and loves to eat her solid foods! Last night she got to try potatoes, I promised her that when she is older the potatoes will taste much better because Mommy will add lots of butter and cream cheese!
