Belle is officially a toddler. She turned one year old on Friday, December seventh. We commemorated her birthday with her 12 month check up: 17 lbs, 3.5 oz and 26.6 inches. The doctor burst through the door with a growth chart in hand, saying, "She's on the growth chart!" One week later, during her last visit with the health visitor, Belle weighed in at 17 lbs, 7.5 oz.
I serve Belle buttered whole grain or whole wheat bread at every meal. I may even spread a puree on top (We shared Gerber green beans yesterday.). Belle ate a piece of fried fish at our church's holiday dinner last night. She has a hearty appetite. She even climbs out of her antique high chair and onto the dining room table during meals.
