Well, I considered DD1 big at 5lb10oz, but that was just because at the time she was the biggest baby in the NICU (34 weeker)! She looked HUGE in comparisson to the babies around here and she was almost too big for preemie clothes to fit properly. DS was 6lb8oz and born at 39 weeks, he seemed very small to us because he was full term and had all this baggy skin... he grew very fast though (11lbs by 5 weeks) so we didn't have long to appreciate his petiteness. DD2 was 8lb8oz at 43 weeks and she seemed very large too.... because she was 2 and 3 lbs heavier than my other kids! That is a big difference! I certainly don't call her huge though, I think of her as nice sized. For me, I think of anything over about 9lbs as sounding pretty big and anything under 7lbs as sounding kinda little.
