Vital Stats

Orlando’s visit to the pediatrician on Wednesday went well. He’s growing nicely. His latest stats:

Height: 25.5"
13 lbs. 13.5 oz.
Head Circumference:
43 cm

I used the Baby Growth Percentile Calculator on and got the following results:

Length = between 75th and 90th percentile
= 50th percentile
Head Circumference
= between 75th and 90th percentile

Not bad!

He received four more shots. He howled in pain, but he was fine again in a few minutes. He didn’t get a fever later, thank God. He rolled over three times for the doctor and he giggled while she was examining him, so he’s becoming more and more social. At his next appointment (6th month checkup) he should be sitting up on his own!

Ahhh, normal size babies. My oldest is in the 99% or height and 85% in weight.But as a freind of my told me once," What did you expectm Dude. Two great Danes are not going to have a Chihuahua"

I doubt that Orlando will stay in the 75th percentile for height. Everyone in my family (except for maybe two people) is short. It would be cool if he's eventually tall enough to reach stuff for me from the top shelf in the supermarket.

So Michelle. When does the little guy go for training to be a Jedi Knight? I think he should have a White Lightsabre. I've never seen one of those before! Whattaya say Michelle? Huh? Huh?

Naw, I think a purple lightsaber like Windu's would be cool.
