Charlotte's Journey Home

Just a Regular Kid, Sort Of

Fattening, er, Feeding Charlotte

Leave a comment

Now that it’s summertime, you may have noticed that Charlotte has a double chin, some little tiny fat rings on her neck and on her thighs. I forgot to mention in the feeding update that she weighed in at 28.6 lbs–a near 2 lb. weight gain in 3 weeks. She also grew 2 cms.

If you’ve eaten at our home, I hope you’re thinking that it is my home-cooking that is doing the trick. You know, the healthy, as-natural-as-I can-make-it, varied food that I love to cook. Of course I’m not feeding my daughter high fructose corn syrup, processed sugar and flour, boxed foods or chemicals. I’m not the totally organic type (cannot fathom the $6+/gallon for milk), but I strive for hormone-free meats, local veggies, etc.

Yeah right.

Her favorite food right now is pizza (puree). I make it for her from scratch. Here are the ingredients (I am seriously cringing as I post this).:


And here’s a picture of the finished product. In case you’re wondering, it smells and tastes quite good.


You don’t want to know what’s in Charlotte’s peanut butter and jelly puree!

How do I feel about this? Check out my LiveJournal essay from August 2006. I feel the same way today.
