Pounds Per Square Inch

A few weeks ago I found this old picture of Ari sitting on a scale when she was 5 ½ months old. If you look really closely at the picture (probably can’t see it too well posted here) you can see that she weighed about 14 pounds.
We took Devyn to a local store yesterday called Mother and Baby Source where they have a scale that they will let you weigh your baby on. She was right at 15 pounds and she is only 3 months old! At her two month appointment she was right around the 95th percentile for height and weight so she is just a big girl. Ari was always around the 75th percentile for height and 50th for weight.
I just hope that people don't expect her to be more “grown up” than her age because of her size rather than what she is mentally ready to be doing. As far as I'm concerned she is perfect in every way...can't tell I'm a mom can you?

All my boys were at different weights. Some were real stocky and thers were so teeny. It all works out in the end.
Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. That made me smile and is much appreciated.

Braden has always been in the 90%-tile and even now, he looks like he's pushing 4, not 3. People always expect so much out of him, because they think he's older; it's especially hard because of his autism, he doesn't even act like he's 3, more like 18 months - 2 years old. Thankfully Kaylie is in the 25%! At least he'll like it when he's older, she wouldn't! Both your girls are darling, though!
