HEAD CIRCUMFERENCE:17.9 INCHES~ 56 PERCENTILE
I know what you are probably thinking....holy cow 3rd percentile!! Yep, we have one slender little dude. When entering into our visit the nurse says "Whoa, he weighs as much as my 6 month old!" In my mind I was like...hmmm...thanks. Peyton is categorized as a high-risk baby. He's 16 lbs but with his height he should be at 21 lbs. After going over his feeding schedule with our doctor he did not seem worried at all. We just need to try to beef him up a bit! He said to us just because he's slender does not mean he's unhealthy...so that put me more at ease. A coorelation between mission and having a baby is~ don't stress about the numbers! So true!! A couple of new things to us, St. George tap water doesn't contain fluoride like up North. So we have to start giving him fluoride drops every day. As for as his eating, we need to introduce him to meats. And power pack his bottles. And as for as movement skills, next step is for him to begin crawling. He's been sitting independently for six weeks now. As for everything else, he's hitting every growth milestone that he needs to. It's crazy how pregnancy goes by so slow but when they are out of your tummy it goes by so fast!!We love him to pieces!
