I am aware there a few graduates who, like me, still reguarly check in on how everybody is doin. Thought I would start a thread for us all to update on how our little ones are doin.

Guilty! I check in all the time. :) Hannah is 4.5 months and she's tiny. She's still fitting comfortably in 0-3 month clothes. Her 4 mo check up she was 11.11 lbs and 22 in. That's 9% for weight and 1.5% for height. She actually looks kind of chubby :) She's already rolling over, by far my earliest to roll over. And her smile lights up the room. She's a very happy baby. She talks and laughs. She doesn't like to be lying down. She wants to be in her bumbo or standing on my lap (with assistance). She LOVES her family. Her brother and sister get the biggest smiles. She doesn't ever want to be alone. If we leave the room and she's in her bouncy or on the floor she cries until we bring her with us, usually to the table for dinner.

Leila, I think that size does make a difference. My other 2 were very healthy in size and they didn't roll over until about 7-8 months. Both of them crawled at 8 months. DS walked at 12.5 months and DD1 walked at 14.5 months. So DD2 rolling over at 4 months is a big deal in our house! She's also much MUCH smaller than they were. They were her size or larger at 2 months.

Thank you for confirmin that! I've not heard of it makin a difference before so wasn't 100% sure if HV was just tryin to make me feel better! I have a few friends who had babies around the same time as me that are all doin things much faster than Benjamin and they are much shorter than him, there's no one even close to his height, so it's difficullt to assess if he's just slow! And of course it's made worse by the fact he looks like a much older baby! I'm happy that he'll do everythin in his own time

No problem! He certainly will do everything in his own time. :) When I was really worried that DS wasn't rolling over yet, my mom told me something I will never forget. She said, honey... Don't worry, he won't be 16 and not able to roll over! LOL I still get a good laugh every time I remember that. :D

Totally guilty of sticking around, mostly as a lurker, but posting here and there!

Silas is now 5 months old as of yesterday. At his last appointment he was 50th percentile for weight and 98th percentile for height. He defenitely doesn't get his tall skinnieness from me :smileyvery-happy:. He's just learned to roll from back to belly in the last week and he's pretty proud of that! Never stays on his back for long anymore when we lay him down. He's the sweetest happiest little guy. Totally love being his mom!

Here are a couple of recent pics of him.

I still lurk here but I do post on the graduate page. By the way it is a great page you all should check it out.

Charlotte is 10.5 months old now. At her 9 month she was 17.5 pounds and 28.5" long. She is long and skinny. Makes finding clothes interesting. Crawling all over the place and pulling up on anything and everything. Her favorite game is chase the cat around the living room (cat doesn't like it). She has tons of hair which you can see in my siggy pic. She says mama all the time. Knows what the word kitty means. Still working on eating more solids then purees. She'll eat it if it comes off of my plate. Oh and she still doesn't have any teeth.

It's so good to see pictures of all of your LO. They are all so cute.
