Baby Updates

Emilie had a 6 week check-up on Monday and I thought it would be fun for all of us to share stats on their growth.

She weighed 7lbs. 9oz. at birth and now she's 9lbs. 1oz. And she was 19" long at birth and is now 20 3/4" long. I don't know her exact head circumference but it was in the 34cm range and now it's in the 36cm range. So she's in the 50th percentile for both. I love it because my other two were always in the 25th percentile up until just recently so I'm kinda enjoying my somewhat chubbier baby. I call her my little chubber chunkita. Biggrin The picture in my siggy is the most current taken on Tuesday.

Where are your lucky ducks at?

We just got back from Maddie's 2 month check-up and she's doing great! I can't believe how much she's grown already...she's 12lbs exactly and 90th percentile (was 8.8 at birth) and 23.6" which is 97th percentile (was 20" at birth). She's got long legs...all of her 3 month sleepers are way too short for her! I'm wondering if she's gonna be tall like her daddy (DH is 6ft 3in).

Well, our little guy is six weeks old today. At his one month appt he was already 12 pounds (8 lbs 9 oz at birth) which was 93rd percentile and 22 and 3/4 inches. His head circumference was 16" and that was also 93rd percentile!

This was taken today:

Hope was at the pediatricians on Friday--she was born at 8 lbs 13 ozs, and weighed in at 11 lbs 13 ozs. They have had a hard time measuring her length, though. When she was born, they said she was 21 inches, then at her first dr appt they said she was 20.5 inches, and now she is over 22 inches.

Erin, I am having the same problem as you! When she was born, she was too big for any of the newborn clothes (or diapers!). Now only 6 weeks old, she is too big for some of her 3 month clothes and she's moving up to size 2 diapers (so much for that whole 192 count of size 1 diapers I have!) I went to Target and bought her a pack of 3-9 month onesies, and even those look small! I think Gerber runs small, though.
