honey i blew up the kid

Brandon is a month old. I wanted to weigh him so I could log his growth month by month in his baby book. Yes, I am keeping a baby book. I didn’t think myself to be the kind of mom who would save hospital bracelets and locks of hair, but my sister bought me this adorable baby book and I wanted to fill every space in completely as instructed. Steve saved Brandon’s umbilical cord stump and a booger the second week, joking that it would go in Brandon’s baby book – both items repulsed me; I do draw the line somewhere.

 So Steve stepped on the scale, stepped off, then stepped on again with Brandon. He weighs 12.2 lbs. He is big enough to wear size 2 diapers now. Then we measured him – he is 24 inches: two feet tall already! He’s only a month old. So I looked up his stats online to see how he was growing. He’s in the 95th percentile for height. Are we raising a giant over here? Maybe we should have named him Gulliver. Oh wait, that name sucks. Brandon’s doesn’t. I don’t care if he is a giant or a little person or a regular Joe. We love this cute kid regardless.

But I am a bit anxious to see what his two month milestone has in store for us. I’m afraid we might be in a new size of clothes by then. Already his one-piece sleep n’ plays with the feet are becoming pretty stretched by the time they make it to his neck.
