97th percentile? Eek!

Kyle had his 2 month checkup this week.

Drum roll please...16lbs 3oz, and 25 inches long! Which puts him squarely in the 97th percentile for both height and weight. Frankly I'm shocked. I understood when he was born big with the gestational diabetes and all, but he isn't showing any signs of slowing down! If he continues on the same track, he'll be a good 23lbs by 6 months, and as many as 29 inches. Yikes!

Which isn't exactly why we did this, but on Monday we bought a bigger car. We traded in my beautiful Escape and John's cursed Fusion and got a fabulous Ford Edge. It's glittery and everything! Here she is...

Going to one car is a bit of a sacrifice, but all of the medical bills we've had this year have done a bit of a number on our savings so having one less car to pay for is going to be a big help. So far we've managed fine, and it should get easier once Kiki is back in school in the fall.

But I do miss my he is for old time's sake...


  1. Wow.... Kyle is going to make Sonia look petite in a while! I love big babies. And I love the new car!

  2. Dude he's going to be as big as Sonia is now by Christmas at this rate!
