String Bean Theory

We took Felix for his 9 month check up.  He’s still top of the height/length growth chart.  He’s grown 2” in the last 3 months.  But weight?  He’s gained nothing.  He’s actually lost 3 ounces.  And the little stinker will not eat.  I feel like the caricature of a Jewish mother:  Eat!  Eeeeeeat!  I’m about to start mashing up cake and ice cream to fatten the little bugger up.

Yes, son.  You DO eat an elephant one bite at a time.  But we need to find a meatier elephant for you.... (Photo credit: Oui Oui)

I have to take him back in a month to be weighed.

I’m sure it would help if he would ever be still.  That kid is constantly exploring.  He’s so fast crawling now that it’s like someone strapped a torpedo to his back.  I probably travel 6 miles a day just running and fetching him back from some part of the house or another.  I don’t know where he gets the energy, especially since he won’t F’ing eat.  Maybe he’s getting extra calories in all the dirt and debris he keeps putting in his mouth?
