As the third child in my family, I often wondered why there were less pictures of me as a baby than my older siblings and why my baby book was only half-way filled out. I wonder no more. I feel so bad that I haven't kept up on monthly updates with Adeline like I did for the girls. But Adeline, if you're reading this someday, it doesn't mean I love you any less! Life as a mom of three is so busy and while I often think of sitting down to write a blog post, I rarely find the time to do so. Anyway, we love our sweet girl and it's about time I wrote an update on her!
Adeline is our string bean. She is around the 75th percentile for height while only the 9th percentile for weight. At her last checkup in December, I believe she was 28.5 inches and 15 lbs 14.5 oz. You would think I'm not feeding her but this girl out eats her sisters most days and some days even her mother! She's never been a fan of baby food and so she eats what we eat. She has 8 teeth and has no problem eating just about everything, the only problem is once she tastes something she really likes, she spits out all other food and will only eat her favorite. For instance, she loves oranges and I've learned I have to hide them from her until she's finished the rest of her meal. If she even sees an orange, she starts yelling and flapping her arms and throwing food off her tray until she gets one. She's still breastfeeding as well and I plan to continue on for at least a few more months. I weaned the girls at 16 months which worked out well, so I'll probably do about the same for her.
