Four Month Check Up

Josiah went in for his 4 month check up today. I was amazed at how much he weighed considering he is strictly nursing. Here are the statistics for him along with Caleb at the same age.

Josiah
4 months -- 18 pounds, 12 ounces (95th percentile); 27 1/4 inches long (100th percentile);
17 1/4 inches head circumference
2 months -- 13 pounds, 15.4 ounces (95th percentile); 24 inches long (90th percentile);
15 3/4 inches head circumference
2 weeks -- 9 pounds, 6 ounces; 22 inches long, 15 inches head circumference
Birth -- 9 pounds, 2 ounces; 21 inches long

Caleb
4 months -- 17 pounds, 2 ounces; 27 1/2 inches long; 17 1/4 inches head circumference
2 months -- 13 pounds, 13 ounces; 24 3/4 inches long; 16 1/2 inches head circumference
2 weeks -- 9 pounds, 11 ounces; 21 1/2 inches long; 14 3/4 inches head circumference
Birth -- 8 pounds, 12 ounces; 20 3/4 inches long

Caleb at his 6 month check up weighed 18 pounds, 11 ounces and was 28 1/4 inches long. Josiah has already passed that in weight! I am curious to find out how much Josiah will grow in the next two months. Josiah had 2 shots today and has been a little cranky this afternoon. But I definitely understand and he has been enjoying an abundance of attention.
