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.
