gaining weight

not skinny (still adorable)
not skinny (still adorable). lots more teeth and hair.
  • 6 months: 12lbs., 0% (when we started Leo on an avocado a day for a month to jumpstart weight gain)
  • 9 months: 17lbs., 5%
  • 12 months: 22lbs. 12oz., 46%
  • 15 months: 27lbs., 78%
  • 18 months: 29lbs., 85%

In addition, Leo had a huge growth spurt and shot up 3 1/2 inches in the last three months, putting him at 34 1/2″, 94%!  In comparison, I was 35″ and 28lbs. at 3 years old… so basically we have an 18 month old the size of a 3 year old.  No wonder he eats so much!

We’re super proud of our little chubber Gus and all his weight and height gains!  What a buddy!

  1. Hey Kim! Just curious…what are some other foods you used besides avacado to get him to gain weight? (or is that the only thing you really changed?) Israel is still below the charts (not even at 0%…he’s 18 lbs., and the same age as Leo), and we would really like to get him on the charts 🙂 But he refuses to eat avacado. He’s been eating a lot of peanut butter and hummus…any other suggestions? THanks 🙂

  2. aww, little Leo, how sweet! Although he’s obviously the same boy, it’s wild that he’s the SAME boy! I’d like to see our boys together as yours has passed mine and then some!
