I suspect Yvette has yet reached 10kg though many have highlighted to me she is getting heavier.
Well, I reported Yvette is such a glutton nowadays. Yes she is. But there are days when she’s totally not eating much at all. And she’s such an active toddler. She climbs everywhere within her reach now. (Up to coffee table, sofa, dining table chair, etc.) I think soon she will climb up to the dining table.
I remember when I was a little girl; I was always regarded as skinny. I ate a lot and yet I hardly put on weight. I only started to put on weight when I was 15. My heaviest weight I had was 73 kg when I was expecting with Yvette. And now I am only 59 kg. I have been eating a lot and rarely put on weight. I guess mainly due to hectic schedule I have with Yvette and breastfeeding.
Label as “Skinny” is a norm in my family. My mother lost all her weight after each pregnancy easily. She only put on weight on much later in her life when she keeps eating without control. My brother standing at 186 cm and his weight hardly crosses 65 kg. My sister standing 158 cm and her weight is never crossed 45 kg. My dad and my weight were classified as average.
Coming back to Yvette, she’s always at 50 to 75 percentile for height but her weight always couldn’t make it to 50%. Having that, the nurses in polyclinic who measured her weight had hardly highlighted to me that I need to “pump” up Yvette.
“A blessing in disguise” of not fitting into the “right” weight ranger for us are:
- Yvette could put on M size diaper where many of her peers are using L or XL. (Diaper is expensive and I toilet train Yvette using disposable when we are out.)
- Yvette could still fit in the nappy cloth. Something really useful for my night training.
- Yvette is still wearing clothing from 12 to 18 mths. I can save money on clothing from time to time.
So weight an issue, I guess not anymore.
