Many of you know we have been stuggling with Palmer's weight. She looks perfectly healthy, just petite. She has plenty of rolls and extra. She just looks younger than she is. Developmentally, she's doing great. She'll be 8 months on Thursday and is crawling. She's been sitting up since six months. Palmer only gained one ounce from 4 to 6 months, so we are working on getting her to gain weight. She gained 7 ounces after only three weeks. That was great! However, the doctor said she is still in the 5th percentile, so we need to work on getting extra calories down.

Another issue is the bottle. She refuses to take a bottle. It would be easy to supplement if she would take the bottle. We've tried every bottle and nipple out there. Hopefully, it will come with time.

I've been really stressed the past few months about her weight, but I am now at ease with it. I think she is just going to be a petite little girl. Wouldn't everyone love to have that metabolism? I know I would. Here's a picture of her precious smiling face:
