Unofficial - Measurement of 25 inches and weight measurements - 14.2 pounds
6 Months - July Official Stats (which is actually 6months, 1 wk) - 25 3/4 inches long (50th percentile!), Weight: 15 lbs, 8 ounces (40th percentile), Head: 75th percentile
7 Months - Unofficial Statistics: 16.2 lbs, 25 3/4 inches long (probably not right, because measuring her is "like trying to catch a butterfly") 8 Months - Unofficial stats: Weight - 16.5 lbs, Length 26.25-26.5 inches, you are a rapidly moving target.
9 Months - Official stats (9 months + 3 days) : Weight- 17 lbs 4 ounces (25th percentile), Height - 28.25 inches (75th percentile), Head: 65th percentile
10 Months - Unofficial Stats: Weight: 18 pounds, Height 27 inches. Obviously the nurse did measure you wrong at your 9 month appt as I don't think you've shrunk 1.25 inches over the last month, and this seems much more accurate.
11 Months (+ 6 days) - Unofficial Stats: 18.2 lbs Weight, somewhere between 27.5-28 inches tall. Very happy with the weight since she got down to 16 lbs 15 ounces when she was so sick this month!
12 Months - Official Stats: 18.4 pounds (10th percentile), 29 1/8 inches (50th percentile), Head: 18 1/4 inches (80th percentile)13 Months (+6 days) - Unofficial Stats: 19 pounds, 28 1/2 inches tall (I think they ALWAYS measure her wrong - we measure as she stands and they measure through toe length).13 Months! Time just keeps on flying, it seems like only yesterday we were throwing your first birthday spectacular! You are STILL a major featherweight (one day I will pull this back up to show you how you used to eat ALL the time and still gain no weight!), but you are our Mighty Mouse! There are two comments we get about you ALL the time - a)you're too little to be walking and b)you have no idea you're the smallest one in class! You love the "bigger" kids and could care less about other babies, you'd much rather be running and chasing the older ones. You can hold your own just fine with them, too! We had one marvelously warm weekend, during which we discovered you don't like grass. I guess it makes sense - you've been walking since you were 9.5 months old, but since that was early November you really haven't gotten to play outside much in this awful winter! You're starting to be really be a much better eater - right now you love blueberries!! Your favorite fruits are blueberries, oranges, apples, grapes, pears and peaches. As far as veggies go, you like green beans, corn, peas and sometimes carrots. And of course your quesadillas. You have been a teething machine, and now have 8 teeth with what looks like 2 more on the way. Thankfully we've had another good month health-wise, with no colds or any other issues. You are still totally in love with Pippin and OFTEN get in trouble for feeding him your snacks and dinner. Your favorite toys are still blocks, cars, and anything that plays music you can dance to. Your understanding of the world around you has grown a lot - you know, if asked, that milk comes from the fridge, you can identify your nose, shoes, bellybutton and know what sounds several animals make. You love to press the buzzer at school to be let in, and get really excited when you see all your past and present teachers. They all say you're a joy to have in class -especially when you dance (oh heavens). And you now face forward in your car seat!! I know, you are not technically 20 pounds yet but your feet were scrunched and we were all pretty much over the meltdowns that come from not being able to see us. Riding in the car is much improved now! You still wear mostly size 6-9 Month pants and clothes and Size 3 diapers. You love eating out and are a social butterfly! We can't wait to see what the next month holds for you!
