Yo Baby, Check It Out

If Mac looks about the same to you in this month's Ugly photo, it's because he's hardly grown at all in the last three months. At yesterday's doctor's appointment, we discovered he's gained thirteen ounces and grown just a quarter of an inch since December. He's been wearing the same clothes since Thanksgiving.

And this? This is really shocking: he's only in the 45th percentile for weight! Only the 50th for height!

"He's TINY!" I exclaimed to Dr. G. when she entered the exam room.

"Well," she said, eyeing big brother Shef, "he's not mega baby."

Fair enough.

Still, we're pleased with this new kid's progress. He's got a bunch of new tricks, remains utterly sweet and adorable, and is constantly moving - pulling up, cruising, and walking along behind push toys and chairs. I think that has something to do with the lack of weight gain. The lack of height gain is slightly perplexing, and Dr. G. and I both suspected an inaccurate measurement at the December appointment.

Can't believe how big he is getting - he will be one before you know it (and that means, it will almost be summer).

Which one is better?

You know, Eleanor gained just a pound between 6 and 9 months, too. We were back on track with a 2 1/2 pound weight gain from 9 to 12 months, though. Miss you guys!

He looks like he's bulking up.

He's very adorable, as always.
