She's a Fatty

Jeramy took Hayden in for her 4 month check-up and shots last week. I suspected that she's a big girl since she is nearly in size 3 diapers and in size 6-9 month clothing, and the stats confirmed it:

Height: 25.75" (90th percentile)
Weight: 16 lbs 12 oz (95th percentile)
Head circumference: 17.25 (100th percentile)

Not only is she bigger than Jillian was at 4 months, she is a little bigger than Jillian at 6 months (she was 25.75" and 16 lbs 7 oz). When putting tights on her the other day, I threatened that what she really needed were some spanx! She has some serious thunder thighs and fat rolls. And yeah, I'm more than a little jealous that she makes it look cute whereas I make it look...well...not so cute.

She tolerated tummy time long enough the other day to show us that she is fully capable of rolling from front to back, and I can tell that rolling back to front will come as soon as she can move that pesky arm out of the way.

Oh my...it is going by way to fast.

This just made me look up Pumpkin's 4 month stats. Oh my- we have some chubbers! Except mine was a good inch shorter & a pound heavier! Which has seriously thinned out & slowed down considering.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane! How about some pictures of the cute roly poly!

YAY!! I LOVE fat babies!!!!

And I agree, those rolls do not look nearly as cute on me either! Not fair.

So Maggie jsut got back from her NINE month check up - 28 inches and 19 lbs. And I thought she was finally chubbing up! I think Cameron was about Hayden's size a 4 months. Chubby babies are awesome. And it is unfair that we applaud fat baby thighs and shun our own.

Oh - and don't let any little old lady stress you out that 'big' babies do everything later. Cam was 21 lbs at 6 months, and was walking by 10.
