Lara's watching her figure

Olga took Lara to be weighed today, and as we suspected, she's "only" 17lbs 4oz. This has put her down from the 75th percentile, where she's always been, to the 50th. This is still perfectly OK, and isn't a surprise, Lara's not been eating as much as we'd hoped when we've been feeding her. It's certainly not been enough to maintain her rate of weight gain that she had when she was only on Mumjuice, but it's necessary that we persevere with the jars and the carrots, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, courgette, peach and whatever else we've been feeding her for the past 6 weeks or so, topped up with Mumjuice. I fed her yesterday afternoon while Olga was having her hair done, and Lara chugged down a little pot of yoghurt in no time, although the half-jar of fish mornay was more of a struggle.
The nurse also suggested that Lara's burning more calories now that she's more active than she's been before, which would certainly contribute to the slower weight gain.
I reckon she's just caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror and has gone on a diet.... ;-)
