New Health Update on our sweet baby boy!

We just got another health update on Aidan! Still no new pictures :(. It was taken on December 3rd, so he would have been 18 weeks old at the time (he’ll be 26 weeks tomorrow). He was 23.6 inches, and weighed 11.7 pounds. It still seems like his weight is a little lower than average, but he’s made gains from his 8.2 pounds at 6 weeks. Any mamas want to weigh in on their experience? I looked at the baby growth chart for boys and he's in the 10th percentile for height and not quite the fifth percentile for weight. As milestones, it was listed that he laughs during play (made me cry when I read that), brings objects to mouth and bears some weight on foot. He can also roll from his stomach to back. The only thing that his assessment said that he wasn’t doing yet was reaching for objects (the assessment was for a child 3-5 months, so I think that’s not developmentally appropriate yet, right?). Anyway, excited for some new news!!!!!!


  1. I have nothing to add about the development questions, just wanted to say yay for a good report!

  2. Thank you. It's hard being patient during the wait, so any news is welcome at this point. Thanks for your kind words. :)
