"Honey, I shrunk the baby!"

Today was Blake's 6 month well check visit. Poor little guy had to get 4 shots, but he was a trooper. I got home and compared his new stats with his 4 month stats along with comparing them to James at the same age. WELL, Blake was:
27 1/2 inches at 4 months and today was 26 3/4 inches at 6 months. I've never thought the length was very accurate at the dr with a squirming baby and this confirms my theory because I really don't think he got smaller. Atleast, I hope not!

So, his official(as official as possible) 6 months stats were:
Height 26 3/4 inches -59%
Weight 16 lbs 8 oz - 28%
Head 17 1/8 inches - 40%

James at 6 months was 18 lbs 2 oz and 28 inches.

No matter what height Blake is we are happy to have a healthy baby boy!

Blake no matter your size...you and your brother have a "BIG" spot in Morgan's heart! :)

I question the height measurements too! But they should have caught that at your doctor's office. LOL My pediatrician will often re-measure the height if the new percentiles don't match up with the previous percentiles. We go for Hannah's official 3 year old check tomorrow. Not fun.
