Cleavage already?

MC had her 15 month checkup today. On whatever scale they rate "baby breast sizes" she rates a 2. He said he would be worried if she was a 3 or higher. So in other words, she has big boobs! At 15 months old! He said she would most likely be wearing a bra at 8 or 9 years old (before other girls) but it doesn't necessarily mean she will hit puberty early. Oh my goodness...my little girl...wearing a bra? Big boobs??? Puberty??? He said she was "estrogen-rich"...so baby boys WATCH OUT! hahahaha :) It normally goes away by this time in most kids, but obviously she still has "baby cleavage." I couldn't believe I was even having that conversation!!!

She weighed 24 lbs. 10 oz. Then we had a long discussion about her eating habits. The Dr did say it was odd that she did not like table food still, but the fact that she was still gaining weight and growing meant he was not concerned at this point. She is "slow and extremely picky on top of that" in that department.

MC has had a REALLY rough day today: vomiting, diarrhea, 2 vaccine shots, and still teething! I'll post a pic of the new driveway later. Sorry nothing new to post today! Hope everyone is having a good week. Oh, I posted some new songs. I can't be from Mississippi and not put Elvis and Faith Hill on there!

We went through the same thing with Addison. Even at 6 months she had a lot of tissue in her breasts, which made her look like she had boobs. The doctor kept checking her and eventually the growth kind of slowed down and evened out. And, now she's right where she needs to be. So funny to think about them having boobs though at such an early age.

Okay, where do I start? I just read your post to Wes and he said for me to tell you (and I quote) "Baby Jack is licking his chops!" Oh dear!

Anyway, I've never heard of a baby breast size. No doctor has ever mentioned this to me about Jordan Ann! I would struggle through that conversation with the doctor, for sure!

I would NOT worry about MC eating. She is weighing more than Jack does! She's definitely growing and doing just fine, despite the fact that she's picky. All girls are, right?

And with those big boobs, she'll need to start early being picky! :)
