Baby sister had her first doctor's appointment. We knew she was big. Although she is 2 months old, we have been dressing her in the 6-9 month outfits. Our apologies to those who gave us 0-6 month outfits. Those clothes are just too small for our girl.
The official measurements are in, with a comparison to other 2 month old girls.
Height: 24.5 inches – off the charts, I assume she is the biggest 2 month old girl in the world.
Weight: 14.07lbs – off the charts, I assume she is the heaviest 2 month old girl in the world.
Head Circumference: 40cm (why it's in metric, I don't know) – 95% percentile, so 5% of the little baby girls out there have freakishly larger heads than baby sister.
So now baby sister is unofficially known as giganto-baby. In fact, she is so big that her waist is only 2 inches smaller than little man's waist, and he is almost 2 and 1/2 years old. Guess who will be wearing boy pants for a while!
Some might fear an enourmous baby, but I am so proud. She is a healthy breast feeding champion with a possible basketball scholarship if people are still into women's basketball 18 years form now. At the very least, my baby can probably beat-up your baby.
You go girl!
