Our growing boy

With Austin turning 1 month old tomorrow I decided to try and weigh and measure him to see how much he's grown in the past month. At birth he was 18 inches and 7lbs. 9oz. and at his 2 week visit he was 21 inches and 8lbs. 7 oz. (we think they measured him wrong at the hospital, how does a baby grow 2 inches in a few days?!) Well, today he measured 22 inches and was 9lbs. 6oz. This means that his length is in the 50-75th percentile and his weight is in the 25-50th percentile. For anyone who doesn't understand percentiles, if Austin was in the 25th percentile for weight, for instance, it means that he weighs as much as or more than 25% of babys who are 1 month old.

I can't wait to see the professional stats and hear what the Dr. says when we go back to the pediatrician in December!
