Wow - my kid is big. I say that like I didn't already know this. His stats are:
Weight - 25 lbs 11 oz - 97th percentile. And you wonder why we call him Piglet.
Height - 29" - 70th percentile
Head Circumference - 19" (I think) It's still big. It's "officially" big.
We were given the go ahead to enjoy most things table food, in appropriately sized bites of course. No fish, peanut butter, strawberries/mangos, egg whites and um, I think that's it. So - time for some cheese and pasta and meat and all sorts of goodies.
The thing with that is, um, I think meat is hopped up on so many steroids it is insane. I mean, are you telling me that chickens running around on the farm have breasts that big? No, certainly not. They are all juiced up, so they get bigger, more chicken to sell, yada yada. I don't think that anyone can deny there is a significant difference between kids (especially girls) at the age of 13 from 20 years ago and now. I know I didn't have breasts like these Jr High girls do. So - what is the point of this rant? Organic meat. It's expensive though - like mad expensive. I can't afford $5-7/lb for organic free-range chicken breast. If you are in the Northern Virginia area and want to split a side of organic beef or some organic chicken, let me know.
Ok -back to Ricky. He is doing great. We still don't have definitive words yet but there is lots and lots of babbling. Nothing like MaMa or DaDa but I have noticed lots of B sounds lately. I think he might just have Baba down. I haven't really noticed if he says it when he sees something or not. I will have to pay closer attention. When he sees his actual bottle, he just gets all wound up and excited, I don't think he can find the words at that moment.
So - that's the status. We have been really busy around the house, putting up the tree and such so no pics this week. We will be in Ohio at the end of next week visiting my family so I will definitely have pics from that visit.
Until next time....TTFN!
