Giant Baby

Phoebe had a very good 4 month check-up on Monday.

She’s up to 15 pounds 2 ounces and an amazing 26-1/2 inches. The kid is TALL!! I didn’t realize how tall she was until I was sitting in the well waiting room at the peds office and met a 9 month old little girl. She was toddling around and was fascinated by Phoebe. The little girl kept coming over looking at Phoebe and wanted to take the baby with her.

Conversation with the little girl’s mom turned to how big our babies were at birth. The little girl was a healthy 7 pounds at birth and was now up to 17 pounds and 26 inches. I oohed and ahhed over the little girl.

When Phoebe was measured – again coming in at a tall 26-1/2 inches tall – I realized that my little pumpkin was TALLER than the little girl in the waiting room.

But I’m always reminded that she comes from tall people. All of Moo’s family are tall and my dad’s family are all giants (mom’s family were all average height).
