As in Stella's chunky little legs. And arms. And feet. The girl's got the cutest little fat feet.
A chunky baby is something totally new for us. Both of the boys, Braeden especially, were long and lanky; sometimes bordering on the scrawny edge of things. Like little spider monkeys. But not Stella. She came out looking just like one of those cute pudgy cherubs. She loves her milk. She loves her food. She's our healthy little eater. The boys were never really into food and honestly, have just begun to become good eaters on a regular basis.
Just another new learning experience we've had as parents of a little girl. I'm telling you, everything about this 3rd child has been different than the others. It's refreshing in a way. Keeps us on our toes. Keeps it interesting.
I have a feeling that Stella will always be a good eater. She doesn't really have foods that she doesn't enjoy. She attacks nearly everything we put on her plate with such ferocity that we are often lucky to keep our fingers! But seriously, she loves to eat. She even is a noisy eater, especially when she really likes what she is eating, which is often. She'll sit there and babble, "mmmmmmm" the entire time she is eating. It is hilarious!
I'm sure she'll lose her baby fat as she begins to enter toddlerhood, but for now we are enjoying the cute, chubby little baby we have.
All is well, 18/26 down, in Drosche Land.
