First 6 Months, by the Numbers

Jun. 7thAs mentioned earlier in the week, the photos from last weekend were taken on what was Christian’s first half-birthday. And after having his six month checkup on Tuesday, I thought I’d give a numbers update and review up to now.

At Birth

  • Weight: 7 lbs, 12 oz
  • Length: 19″

One Month

  • Weight: 10 lbs, 14 oz (75th percentile)
  • Length: 22″ (75th percentile)
  • Head Circumference: 38 cm (50th percentile)

Two Months

  • Weight: 13 lbs, 11 oz (90th percentile)
  • Length: 23.25″ (50-75th percentile)
  • Head Circumference: 40 cm (50th percentile)

Four Months

  • Weight: 17 lbs, 4 oz (90th percentile)
  • Length: 26.25″ (75-90th percentile)
  • Head Circumference: 42.25 cm (50th percentile)

Six Months

  • Weight: 18 lbs, 10 oz (75th percentile)
  • Length: 28″ (90-95th percentile)
  • Head Circumference: 44 cm (50-75th percentile)

Not a bad scorecard so far. Next scheduled visit is at the nine month mark, so we’ll see then whether his growth trend continues.
