Fifty Five Pounds
Until her mom and her sister, Doodle struggles to put on weight. Being elbowed by her or having her chin rest on you is a painful experience because she has so little fat. Tonight I looked at her and noticed that her face looked fuller, so I asked her to step on the scale. Drum roll please: Doodle now weighs 55 pounds, 3 more pounds than she weighed just a month ago and 7 more pounds than Tootle. While the girls are four years apart, Tootle only weighed 4 pounds less than Doodle when she came home two years ago. The gap is now the largest that it has ever been. My girl is still skinny but at least she now has a bit more meat on her bones.
