I'm a little concerned about my LO's head circumference.

sounds like he is a cute little guy :) I know it's difficult not to worry. One of my babies had a head that was at the 100 percentile....and he is fine, his body eventually caught up! hopefully that makes you feel better :)

The curve of growth is what matters. If it's growing and following a good curve, I wouldn't worry at all.

I have one super small kid (she's almost 5 and not 30 lbs yet). She always had a small head as an infant. But she's super smart. She's in preschool but works with the kindergarteners at school. She's reading. Doing simply math. We do work on reading because she likes it, but she's the one that initiated it. We don't really push her or anything. This is just who she is. So small head doesn't mean not smart. Just means small head.
