While I was pregnant another couple moved in next door and they were also expecting their first daughter in June. Their DD arrived about 3 weeks after Abbey. I don't see them often (especially now that it's winter) but EVERY time we see them they are trying to compete with us for weight. It's the first question they ask...every.time. I don't know if it's just me but aside from the odd time here and there (I use my wii fit) I only weighed her during her monthly visits. Her last one was at 6 1/2 months and the next is at 9 months. I've only weighed her once since her last visit. She didn't gain any weight but I think she's gotten taller so I'm not concerned. She weighs 18lbs...their DD (who is younger and about the same height--accoridng to them anyway) weight 21lbs!!! When I said Abbey's weight they were like "oh, that's not bad"...wth does that mean?
I hesitated asking if she's crawling/cruising cause I didn't want to sound like a braggy douche...but I did anyway. And then they are a like "what did she say first? Mommy or Daddy?" I replied that she has been saying "mamamama" and "dadadada" for months now and DH added, but it's not like she associates it with us yet. So of course they had to one up and mention how the husband returned to work after being on vacation for three weeks and the first day he came home their DD said "PA"(they are French so pa for papa) as soon as he walked in the door
Every time they talk to us I feel like I'm losing some contest that I want no part of. I know DD is healthy, she's breastfed so yes she may weigh less but she's far from underweight and I don't feel a need to compare her to their daughter. Am I odd for not weighing her more often? I just don't see how they always have her exact weight right on the tip of their tongue...I'm like "well she was about 18lbs a month ago"
Here is some pizza and beer for listening to me whine
