Grant's checkup on July 20th revealed an interesting growth curve:

27" long = 75th percentile

16 lbs. 9.5 oz. = 37th percentile

44cm head circumference = 68th percentile

So while he has always been long and skinny, he is especially so now! He hasn't been below the 50th percentile for weight before, and now he is way below - the result being that cheap baby clothes (e.g. clothes from Walmart, the fat people store) that fit him in the length hang off of him since he's skinny. He's wearing 9 month sleepers now, 12 month Gerber onesies (since they fit small), and mostly 6 month other clothing. We sure love him!

  1. I hear ya on the clothing issue. Brooklyn is still in 3 month shorts and she has no pants because anything that fits her in the waist is waaaay to short. *sigh*
