Big Boy

This is a kid we were worrying wasn't gaining enough? Yikes.
He officially weighs in at 13.6 - 90th percentile. 
His height is 23 1/2 - 75th percentile.
Head circumference is 40cm - 50th percentile.
Cuteness is 100th percentile.

My mom purports that 13lbs. is the magic number. The amount they weigh when they calm down, stop crying and relax into being a sweet baby. Maybe we're getting there. Maybe. It's hard to tell with him. Just as I think things are getting easier, he has a crappy day. So, no promises, but I think we're still headed in the right direction. As we speak, he's hanging out on my bed just talking to himself.

Your little guy is adorable! I know what you mean about those big boys, my little man is now 5 months old and pushing 20lbs. My arms get so tired hauling all that baby around!

Hurray for great news.

I was told they mellow out a bit once they reach double their birth weights. But who knows? I think some babes are cranky sometimes. Whatcha gonna do about it?

Glad you got reassuring stats. Nice to know they're thriving, isn't it?
