Long and Lean!

Wow! This is a record 4 posts in one day!!!

Yesterday William turned 4 months old! We celebrated with three shots... Poor guy! He tried to be brave but the silent sobs came anyways. He was fine as soon as I could snuggle him close.

Now onto his stats. Its official! He is a peanut!!!!
He weighed in at a whopping (for fake) 12lb. 10oz. Thats the 10th percentile in case you were wondering. Here is the funny thing though. He was 26 inches long!!! Thats the 87th percentile. The kid has grown 3 inches in the past 2 months!
His pediatrician was not concerned about his slight stature at all. The important thing is that he is growing. His rate of growth has just slowed down. Hannah actually went through a similar growth pattern (minus the extreme height). After being born in the 95th percentile, Hannah lived in the 11th-15th almost her whole first year. Our pediatrician thinks most of his growth went into his height instead of his weight. (You think?)
So now we hope that he will start packing on the pounds, just not at 3:30am. He was doing great there for a while. He was sleeping 8-9 hours, but now he is back to waking up once during the night. I'm fine with it because he does go right back to sleep but a whole nights worth of (uninterrupted) sleep can go a looong way! Plus, my only other experience was Hannah who was sleeping 12 hours no matter what at this point. SO, its an adjustment but the little guy is so worth it! =)
See what I mean?
