Weight/Height Comparison

I took Hadley in for her 6 month check up today.

She weighs 16 lbs 15 oz, which is right at the 50th percentile.

She is 27.5″ tall. Which is at the 95th percentile.

The dr said she is a big underweight for her height, but he was very happy with her growth curve. She seems like she is going to take right after Cady on that. Tall and skinny.

Cady at 6 months was 16 lbs 7 oz and was 26 1/8″ long. So Hadley is a little bigger all around. Plus, this was Cady’s “chunky” phase. I think Hadley’s chunky phase may be a few years long vs a few months šŸ˜‰

Her pediatrician was really happy overall with her development. He did say we need to work a bit on her bearing weight on her legs. But I’m really not concerned about that. She just prefers not to right now. I am sure she will change her mind soon enough. Nothing to stress about yet.

We were actually at the dr’s office on Friday because Hadley had an ear infection again. So we have moved on from amoxicillin and are on cefdinir now. Today, her dr said her ears were healing up nicely, so hopefully we won’t have to be back until the 9 month checkup.
