    Today was Kate’s 12 month well child check.

    We’ve spent the past 5 weeks encouraging her to eat as much as possible.  We’ve switched to yogurt with 15 g of fat per serving and I add heavy cream and peanut butter to it.  I butter her sandwich before I add the peanut butter and jelly.  I scramble her egg in butter with full fat cheese, flax seed and heavy cream.  I mean seriously.

    Although I can tell that she’s gained weight this past month and I can see that her clothes have gotten tighter I was a little nervous about what the doctor would have to say about Kate’s weight.  Would you believe that Kate went from 16 pounds 2 oz a month ago to 17 pounds 8 ounces today?  Hooray!  She’s up to 4%!  And that’s with the stomach flu and a full week of eating next to nothing.  Literally- next to nothing.  Her height has popped up too in the past month.  She went from 5% to 7% in length!

    I’m so proud of my little girl.
