Can You Have Too Much of a Good Thing?
According to Emmett's pediatrician, the answer is yes. Here are Emmett's two month stats:
Weight 16 lbs 5 oz-- 100%
Height 24 1/4 inches-- 90%
Head Circumference 16 1/8 inches-- 75%
Thomas' 2 month stats are lost in the mists of time. However, at one month Emmett was 1 lb more than Thomas had been (almost 13 lbs vs. almost 12 lbs for Thomas) so he's probably still running a bit bigger. Dr. Sexter said it was fine that Emmett weighs 16 lbs at 2 months but she doesn't think he should weigh 18 lbs at 3 months. How she thinks we can stop this from happening, I don't know.
Emmett has a sizeable baby cousin, Theodotia. Theo's 2 month stats can be found here-- http://elsieasayo.blogspot.com/2008/09/theo-had-her-two-month-check-up-at.html.
I don't want to get all competitive, but let's just say we look forward to a wrasslin match sometime soon.
Also, does anyone know anyone who needs some newborn baby boy clothes? Because we seem to have grown out of all of ours.
Thomas on the other hand has decided that he won't be growing up--
