Quick Update on Sid's Height and Weight

So Sidney went to his scheduled 6th month Well Baby exam with his pediatrician this past week. The doctor is amazed at his growth so far. Since Sidney was born, he's been tracked on a height/weight scale for other babies his age (actual age, not gestational). Up until now, he's been well below the 10% range, more like 1% to 5%. Meaning, he was only larger than 1-5% of other babies his same age. We knew this was going to be the case since he was born nearly 4 months early. How could he possibly be the same size as other babies born at full term? We never were concerned that he was so below the line. this visit, he weighed in at 16lbs and measured 25" in length...he's finally above the 10th percentile! This is BIG news...he's growing so fast, that soon enough he'll be caught up to other babies his age. It's amazing how his body is working in hyperdrive to catch up. We're so proud of him.

This week we've even started him on eating brown rice cereal and today we tried peaches. It's taking him a little time to get used to the spoon instead of his bottle, but he's picking up the process pretty quickly. :)

More pictures to come soon...
