i laughed out loud at some of these pps... (the one about the doctor's holidays... ROFL!!)
my daughter was 8lbs., 9oz. in 1998, and the biggest baby born at that hospital at the time. this year, my son was born at exactly 10lbs. and also the biggest baby born up to that time (the next day someone had a 10lb., 12oz. baby).
i didn't think ds was THAT big til i was out with a friend of mine who has a tiny kid 5 months julien's senior, and a passerby exclaimed, "that baby looks like it wants to eat that other baby." then i was like, "my kids big?" i hear it so much...
i think big is over 11 or 12 pounds. and small is anyone under like 5 pounds. i do want to have a little petite baby one of these times tho. those little babies are so cute. and to be honest, julien didn't fit into some of his clothes anymore at birth...
great topic, btw.
