Sooo Big!

I say Alyce is Sooo Big because at her 18 month checkup in April we got her updated height and weight. And she is Sooo Big because her height of 33.5 inches puts her in the 90th percentile. Her weight of 24lbs 7oz puts her in the 50th percentile in that category. Ever since she started walking at 10 months she hasn't really put on a whole lot of weight. Between her 15th and 18th month she only put on half a pound. She is a picky eater (which kid isn't) and she gets a quasi rounded diet, but the quantity is surprising. For instance last night we gave her half of a turkey and cheese sandwich. She probably ate about two thirds of half of a sandwich. Toss on a few carrots, some apple juice, and that sums up dinner. Maybe it is enough to sustain her and keep bones growing, but won't put pounds on her. In any case the doctor wasn't worried about her weight so I guess I shouldn't be either.

One extra thing that was interesting about this turkey sandwich (again with the sandwich). If we were holding the sandwich she wouldn't have anything to do with it. If we put it on her feeding table (thanks Babee Tenda) she was all over it. All over it is usually good, but in her case she keeps jamming in food, not finishing a bite, and not swallowing until she has a mouth full of food. What does the community think? How can we get her to slow down her eating?
