Yesterday we had to take Hunter in for an unexpected doctor visit to get the nasty diaper rash that has invaded his man parts area examined. Turns out he has some fungal infection that needs prescription cream to treat. Lovely. I told him this is what he can expect his wee wee to look like if he hangs out with skanky girls when he's older.
One bonus of the visit was getting his latest stats and he's now clocking in at a hefty 22lbs and 27.5" long at 7 1/2 months.
This weekend I pulled out my baby book to do a little size comparison between Hunter and myself at his age and here's how we measured up to each other:
Hunter- 7lbs 12oz 20.5"
Me- 7lbs 14 oz 22" (the only time I've ever been tall)
Hunter- 11lbs 12oz
Me- 9lbs 12oz
Hunter- 12lbs 14oz
Me- 11lbs 8oz
Hunter- 17lbs 9oz
Me - 14lbs 8oz
Hunter- 19lbs 14oz
Me- 15lbs 10oz
Me- 16lbs 13oz
**I didn't hit 22lbs until I was 18 months old!!!
So as you can see my kid is enormous. Even though I started out bigger he quickly surpassed me in size. I can't really compare him to Kristian as a baby since he was born 2 months premature so his stats are a little off because of that.
Also, from looking through my baby book it appears that my child is a genius who is hitting most of his major milestones well before I did (that or I was just slow).
I'm so happy my mom kept such detailed notes in my baby book because it's been fun to compare my development with my sons. It will be interesting to see if I ever have a daughter, if her growth is closer to what mine was since it seems I'm raising a future NFL linebacker at the moment.
