The Peanut Grows!

Baby C has always been on the small side. He's been dropping his weight percentile since pretty much day one, and fell off the charts completely a while back after hovering at the 5-10%ile mark.

I always dreaded the weigh-in at his appointments. My pediatricians are generally fantastic, but I always wondered if they were judging me or blaming me when the numbers stayed so low. I never understood it, either, because he eats all the freaking time. It seems like every time I check in on the daycare webcam he's eating a snack.

He had his 15-month appointment yesterday and I'm pleased to announce that he's FINALLY on the weight chart! He weighed in at a whopping 21 pounds, 1.5 ounces, for the 7th %ile. Yay Charlie!

I don't think he looks that small, either.


  1. Weigh ins at the pedi made me so nervous that first year. Baby C looks perfect no matter what his size!

  2. As long as you know he's healthy and that he's eating and "regular" there's no need to worry!
    R gained a ton of weight at first and then totally slowed down, like went from 90%-70%-50% and now 10%.
    He was 23 pounds at 15 months!
    now that they're so active, it's a little tougher to get the weight to go on!
