Another month with Jude has flown by, and though this baby is a tiny guy, he's so filled with happiness and some killer kicks!
As I wrote, Jude is small for his age, which tends to make an over-analyzing mama like me worry. Between his last two well visits, he gained only a few ounces, which makes me compulsively check out every baby we come across, comparing body types and ages. His little friend (whose had you see in the photo above), is 3 months younger than him yet 3-4 pounds heavier. We've actually gotten some hand-me-downs from him. Oy!
But Jude is quite healthy and happy, and is growing longer, despite his lean-ness. He's still a pretty good eater, eager to devour most anything we feed him (sweet potatoes excepting). I can't figure out why he doesn't gain more weight. I wonder if he'll just be a small kid. Isn't it just like a doting mom to worry about everything? Too chubby, too skinny, too picky, too sleepy. Just go with it, Kathleen.
I adore my two boys, and at seven months, I think we've finally settled into a comfort zone.
Pinterest for ideas. July's One Year "Jude Update" is really going to blow my mind.
