Operation Weight Gain

I took Marlie for her 6 month check up yesterday and I was very eager to see how her weight gain was. Over the past 2 months she has grown an inch and developmentally she is right on track which is great. Over the past month she gained 7 oz but is still only at 13-2. So now he is concerned about her weight. She is going to have to eat about 3 times the solids she has been eating and I have to keep a diary of everything she eats and when. We have to go back in a week for a weight check. I had already planned on starting to give her a bottle of formula a day so hopefully that will help a tiny bit too.
She loves cereal and all the vegetables but last night she had chicken for the first time. She has finally met a food she doesn't like.
However, she is a big fan of Orange Julius!

Cristin, I went through a similar scenario with Gab. At 1 year she was in 6 mo. old clothing. She is now 8 years old and weighs 89 lbs. Uh... seems to have worked out. LOL!

P.S. Dear Marlie, Pixie loves Orange Julius too!!!!
