The 2nd child or chance...
I was so worried about her for that whole first year (okay, and I still worry about her plenty) and we had so many follow up appointments and checks I don't think that until she was a year adjusted that I stopped knowing exactly what she consumed in a day. Taylor on the other hand, I rarely look at what she has taken in during a day. She is fed on demand when with me, and of course I would notice if she didn't eat all day but otherwise its a pretty natural relaxed system.
With Kate, I worried and fretted. We had to try every spoon, and even just work up to having her allow something up by her face. With Taylor I actually enjoy feeding her. I really don't think about it much except for choking and the possible allergy worry. Taylor in response enjoys every last minute of it all, she eats with gusto, loves the spoon and nearly explodes with excitement for the mesh feeder with fresh fruit in it.
But, it sure is nice especially when you are exhausted at the end of a work day after 6 months of not sleeping a ton and dealing with a bossy 3 year old to just relax and watch a pudgy little baby enjoy her peas and watermelon.
