Not So Little!

Little Man went for his 3 month well baby visit on Tuesday—and he's not so little!   While I wasn't shocked, I was still in awe of his weight: 16 lb!  He's the weight of a six-month-old!  And he was in the 90th to 95th percentile for weight.  However, his length was only 23.5 inches, which is the 25th to 50th percentile for height.

I'll say it again: I hope he grows into his feet, which are large.

My husband is 6'2" and slim.  I'm hoping Little Man takes after his daddy in that respect.  I'm 5'4" and average. That's going on pre-pregnancy weight.  As of now, I'm carrying about 15 extra pounds. No. Scratch that. I'm carrying around 31 extra pounds—16 of them is my son!!!

But otherwise Little Man is healthy.  The first week of December we're going to see a pediatric urologist for his Hydrocele and are going to Cranial Technologies to get a free assessment to determine if he needs a helmet or not for his (my guess) Brachycephaly with Plagiocephaly. I think his condition is somewhere between mild and moderate and want him to get a helmet if he needs one. It's not at all apparent from front-on photos. But if you see the back of Little Man's head, it's pretty flat.

So that's the most recent update. Sorry I've been MIA since last week, I had to send my MacBook Pro to the Apple Store to get a new optical drive. They always seem to die on me... and I don't even burn discs too often!
