{16 pounds 3 ounces}

Kenley had her first doctors appointment yesterday with her new pediatrician. I love this pediatrician! She went over all of Kenley's previous weights and she thinks that Kenley's failure to gain weight is caused by the stomach flu that we had had back in January. She said that it takes a really long time for babies tummies to recover and that that could easily explain why Kenley hasn't been gaining weight. Yay! Finally a doctor that thinks my kid is normal!!! Another exciting thing that she said was that she doesn't think that Kenley needs to do a 3 month gluten free trial!! She also said that often times when children her age get the stomach flu it elevates their blood platelet count. So the stomach flu pretty much explains everything!

Who in the world is that little girl and what in the world have you done with Baby Kenley??? You're gone for like three weeks and all of a sudden she looks like a toddler!

I'm glad the pediatrican had good news for you. I had been wondering how she was doing.

Lastly, could she possibly be wearing any more Polo? Haha! :P

My Polo obsession has gotten much worse!

Keri-
Sorry about the package Channing forgot to sent off and I thought he sent it. I will be sending it. Kenley is so cute and is growing up. So do not be worried about her weight she weighs more that what Kennedy weighed at that age. I am so glad God brought you to a dr. that is very understanding and someone that seems to love childern.

Such a big girl and great news about the doc!

That's great news about the flu (who would think you could ever come up with a statement like that!)! I think we live in a world that loves to diagnose and WebMD is not your friend.

Kenley looks happy, healthy, and so wonderful! What a baby bump you have!
