Nick’s 6 Month Check-Up

Posted by nattya61 on October 8, 2009

I just got back from taking Nicholas to his 6 month check-up and shots. He now weighs 25 pounds and 2.5 ounces. He is 28 inches tall and has an 18 inch head circumference. So according to the “master charts” he falls into the categories:

Length = in percentile 90
Weight = above percentile 95
Head Circumference = in percentile 90 

These charts basically tell you how different he is from the “average” child, so yes, it’s pretty arbitrary. He’s big. No kidding. I can see him. It’s like if someone walking down the street would yell out to me, “Hey, you’re fat!” My response would be, “No, really? Cause I don’t have a mirror you know.” Nicholas isn’t fat, but he is big. And he’s smart. Maybe he’ll become a doctor or researcher one day who tells people, “You know what, it’s ok to not be average. Average is boring.”
