Last week, I packed away all of Colson's 9 month pants...not because they were too small but because he's 13 and a half months old. It was time to move on up to the big boy clothes! :o)
But as his little butt waddled away wearing 12 month rolled over pants, that he was still stepping on and walking out of; I thought to myself that maybe, just maybe, packing away those 9 month pants was a bit premature.
I haven't pulled his 9 months pants back out...mostly because the weather has been beautiful and I have been putting him in shorts. But those, too, are size 12 months. Do I seriously need to go out and buy my 13 and a half month old son size 9 months shorts?
I love the fact that he is our little peanut but a part of me can't help but worry. At his 12 month appointment the doctor assured me that he was fine, but that if I wanted to bring him in for a few weight checks before his next appointment, that I could do so.
So, to not be the overly worrisome mom, I decided to only bring him in once for a weight check and split the difference between his 12 month and 15 month appointment.
This past Thursday our little peanut weighed in at a whopping 20lbs 2oz and measured 28.25 inches. That is up just over half a pound and a quarter inch from his 12 month check-up. Not really what I was hoping for but I guess I just have to keep telling myself that a gain of anything is a gain and that he is eating and is happy and healthy otherwise.
And just to give you a visual of his numbers since he was born, here is his growth chart:
Everyone keeps telling me that he will have a growth spurt. They have been telling me that for a few months now. I try to believe them but with every dot on his chart, I begin to worry a little bit more.
