I was going to start this post out with a picture of a fat baby to show what Cole is NOT. However, when I Googled "fat baby" in images, I couldn't bring myself to use one. These babies looked like their cheeks were eating their faces. I can only figure that they drink from bottles of bacon grease.
So, we will focus on what Cole IS. I'd say happy.
So many of you left reassuring comments after I mentioned Cole's lack of weight gain. Thank you. I thought that I'd update on the subject. And I'll try to sum it up and get to the point --not one of my strengths.
The week after Cole's year check up, I took him to the lactation consultant I'd worked with before. I knew that even though he was drinking cow milk now, she'd offer good advice and weigh him for free. She did both. I decided to tell the docs that I wanted to wait. We'll see how things are going at 15mos. We feel good about letting it be for now.
He's such a content kid. What a blessing to have him in our family. He thinks he and his sister are hilarious. They are.
