4 ounces

We took Henry into the doc's office this morning for his weight check. In the past month he gained four ounces. Four. That's it. Even though he's been consuming everything we can think of that should have put the weight on. Darr surmised in the car ride to daycare, somewhat facetiously I think, that perhaps our bodies are so accustomed to high fructose corn syrup that Henry can't grow off nutritious, healthy foods. We're meeting with the doctor tomorrow to discuss what to do next.

Man, if he only knew how much lots of us would pay for a metabolism like that! I'm sorry the appointment didn't go as well as you were hoping. I'm sure the doctor will have lots of suggestions though.

Did he grow taller?
Time to swap the Tillamook for Cheez Whiz?
I think he's a perfect lil' guy!

I was just reading an article about Michael Phelps (you know, the "best Olympian ever?") and he apparently eats 12,000 calories a day and is quite a slender guy. Maybe Henry is a swimmer at heart?
