Monday at the health clinic Maddy was weighed and measured again. And she has an entirely NEW set of percentiles. These ones make so much more sense to me.
Height 90th (23 inches)
Weight 90th (12lbs, 12oz)
Head 90th (still)
She is a large baby. Everyone comments on it, in comparison to babies older than her she's just as large. But not disproportional. Then how was she only 50th percentile for length? And then 75th for weight? Feeling more confident about these new numbers.
Although, with these numbers I realized something. Something that made me beg Maddy to slow DOWN on the growing! My 2 month old (well, 9 week old) is now fitting size 2 diapers! This child better be potty trained quickly, otherwise we'll have her in Depends.
She's changing daily. More and more cooing and babbling. And more smiles! So many smiles from her now. "They" say we should be starting routines. Naps times, wake times, bedtime routines. Well, we're just now getting the idea of taking naps down (I am so sorry I didn't start this sooner, Maddy-moo!). I don't want to start regimenting her yet. And "they" we should soon start trying to get Maddy to sleep in her own room, in her crib. Right now we're the evil parents that have her sleep in her swing during the day, bassinet at night. Again, maybe next week I'll start that chore. It's NOT going to be easy. Maddy fights the sleepz to begin and then put her alone? Not good... So not good!
