6 Month Stats!

At Cami's 6 month appointment today we not only got shots, but we also got all of Cami's 6 month stats. She is officially the most perfect non-proportionate baby.

To start things off, she is 27 inches long - that is the 90th percentile. 90th?!? Whose child is this? Jon nor I are exceptionally tall but apparently Cami is well on her way to being tall. At her 4 month appointment she was in the 80th percentile for her height and now she is in the 90th percentile. Wow - Mommy and Daddy's lean machine!!

Next is her weight. She weighed in at 16 pounds even, which is in the 50th percentile for her age. She was also in the 50th percentile at her 4 month appointment so all is staying the same in this category. Jon and I are really happy with this since she was so sick for at least a good 2-3 weeks after her 4 month appointment and at one point when she was refusing to eat we had her weighed (she was almost 5 months old) and she had lost weight - she was only 13 lbs 13 oz. That means Cami gained over 2 pounds in about a months time. Way to go girl! We knew you'd catch back up after getting over that nasty sickness!!

Lastly is her head circumference. Her head measured in at 41 centimeters which puts her in the 25th percentile. Her head has been tracking on the 25th percentile curve since she was born, so all stays the same in this category too. We talked to the Dr. about her head being flat in the back and she told us that it's nothing to be concerned about. She said it will even out as she gets to be more mobile and that even if it stays a little flat in the back, it's simply cosmetic and her hair will grow long and pretty to cover it. Jon and I were relieved to hear this because Cami has been through SO much in her short 6 months on this earth and the last thing we need is for her to have to have to wear a hard plastic helmet to round out her head.

So - there you have it. We have a tall, average weight baby with a slightly smaller than average head. We couldn't be happier. She is perfect in EVERY way!
