Jumbo Baby

So Theo had his 4-month checkup today. Turns out he's a Jumbo Baby, just as we thought. For measurements, Theo clocked in at:

17 lbs 11.5 oz = 90th percentile
26.25 inches = 90th percentile
head circumference 44 cm = 90th percentile

The percentile means that he's larger than 90% of other babies his age. So as far as 90's across the board, he's nothing if not consistent! He's in excellent health and took his shots like a man. Crying, that is, but was quickly soothed in Daddy's arms with a bottle.

Hooray that he is healthy!

You know, Veronica weighs somewhere between 17 and 18 pounds. :lol:

So good to hear that he's doing well! Har, I have lollipop babies. Sabrina is 97th percentile in height, 46 percentile for weight, 80 something for head circumference. Paloma was on that track too. Very grateful to have healthy little ones.

S had her shots yesterday too. She cried, then nursed. I'm always amazed at how well they bounce back.
