95th Percentile

Ten days shy of his 4 month “birthday” we took the small one in for his 4 month well baby check up. He weighed in at a substantial 16 lbs 10 oz, which was actually less than we had expected. But then we heard the height – 26 inches. That’s the 95th percentile (i.e. he is taller than 95% of babies his age). Can I reiterate that I am 5’2″? That my husband is 5’10”, that the only person in either of our families to break six foot is the small one’s great grandfather? The doctor said we’d have a better sense of height when he’s two years old, but that at this rate, he is likely going to be tall.

If it wasn’t for the fact that my husband followed the small one ou of the OR and into the nursery to be cleaned, and that he looks exactly like his father, I would be suspiciosu that I’d taken home someone else’s baby.
