That is impressive, Travis, my almost 2 year old, was 14lbs 14oz at 1! I have tiny kids though, except Kincaid...he's average size, the other 3 aren't even on the growth charts.

Ezra's about 15 1/2 lbs at almost 12 weeks. His weight hasn't jumped up like it did early on so he seems to be stretching out some.

Eli was 8.5 # at birth, and was 14 # at 9 wks. 11 wks now, and I would guesstimate him to be around 15 # based on all his new fat rolls! DD was much smaller at this age, despite weighing more at birth.

Chloe will be 10 weeks tomorrow, at her appointment yesterday she was 12lbs14oz, up from 8lbs even at birth. She's wearing 6 month clothes. Sob. DH and I are both feeling like our expectations for her behavior are higher because she's so big...we're not used to having such a big newborn. DD1 wasn't this big until she was like 5 mos old.

Weird--my DD is 1 1/4 lbs less than yours and she's still fitting in most of her 0-3 mo clothes. I don't think they'll last until she's 3 mos, but it's surprising how different they can be. If I kept her in sposies, I think she'd probably make the 3 mo mark in them. She also fit into her newborn clothes until she was at least a month (although not with cloth diapers).

I have a freak baby as usual.

Samara is 10 lbs 11 oz and almost 25 inches long. She will be 10 weeks tommorow. She is in the middle of the breastfed baby chart so Im not going to worry too much but it seems my children always grow up and down rather than out. She is long and skinny but already into 3-6 mos clothes because the 0-3 mos are too short. However, everything is baggy on her.

Sigh... Her sister was the exact same way and is still tall and skinny as a 6 year old. WAAAAY taller than all her classmates.

Shelley, married to my wonderful DH and mama to DD (10) DD (4) and  DD (1)

Morgan was 8lbs3oz, now he's 8 weeks and I'm guessing 11-12lbs, he was 10lbs3oz at 1 month old and has definitely grown. In cloth diapers, he's wearing 3-6m clothes.

River is in newborn/up to 7lb clothes still, well, except his onesies are still preemie, and he has one preemie sleeper that still fits. He is still in newborn disposable diapers. I have 4 kids, and he's the 3rd tiny one. Janelle was 15lbs at 18 months old and 17lbs at 2 years old. Travis is 20lbs now at just about 2. But Kincaid was 17lbs at 4 months...though, he was only 19lbs at 1...he's been in the 50th% since 1 year old...the other 3 just aren't on the charts at all.

I was at the doctor's office on Friday (my oldest son had to get stitches out of his head!), and I weighed Theresa. She was 11 pounds 7 ounces on Friday and she was 9 weeks. She was born at 8 pounds 12 ounces.

G is 10 weeks old today. He is 11lbs. He was 20.5" at the doctor appt. two weeks ago, but I don't believe it b/c he has outgrown all of his clothes length wise and according to them, he gained less than an inch.

He was 6lbs 13.5oz at birth and 6 1/2lbs at hospital discharge.

Griffin was 8 lbs at birth and now at 13wks he weighs 13.5 lbs. Not sure about length.

nak- 14 lbs 13 oz now at 12 wks (8 lbs 9 oz at birth). Having a chunky baby is so foreign to me, as DD started at a slightly higher weight but gained much more slowly.

Babywearing has def been harder at first, as he was too chunky to fit in the sling lying down without getting smooshed. Now that he is stronger, he does great in sling, since he's happy to face out.

DD was 8 lbs 1 oz & 21" @ birth.

She was gaining a pound a wk for the 1st 3 wks (11 lbs 1 oz by the Saturday before she turned 3 wks in light clothing according to the Post Office scale) then went to .5 lb/wk since so as of Monday she was about 14 lbs (MILs scale is old school from DH and SILs so if you have a wiggly baby sort of hard to get exact as it moves).

At 6 wks, I measured DD at 24" and as of today at 9.5 wks she is 25". One more inch and I will have to get a new forward facing/high back booster car seat for DS1 so DD can go in his convertible car seat.

Weight is is .5 lb/wk lighter than my boys since 3 wks but length wise she is keeping up with DS1 (DS2 was slightly slower but he was my longest at 22" coming out). I like to fatten them up quickly and make them grow in height fast too. DD has been in 3-6 months clothes since 4 wks and shortly will be in 6-9 months though I have already put her in some and not all are that big on her and she is not even 10 wks yet!

I have no idea about the length of my little Millee, but at 14 wks she is 14lbs 5oz she was 8 lbs even at birth! Baby wearing is totally great she loves the ergo and that's what we've been sticking with since the beginning! I always have chunky babies and I think it makes it easier, they don't seem quite as fragile as skinny babies!!
