We all know that Madeline is an extraordinary child (not to sound like one of those my-child-is-GIFTED moms), and it was proven today at her six month checkup.

She’s right on target with her motor skills and development, and very well-nourished. VERY well-nourished.

She’s in the 95th percentile for weight and as for height – well, they couldn’t give me a percentile because she’s so tall it was off the chart. Seriously. She’s 28 1/2 inches tall and weighs 19.1 pounds. Not to worry, though. Dr. Glasgow says her growth spurts should slow down from now on and everything will even out. Although, she will probably continue to be fairly tall, at least for a while.

So, bring on the comments about our chunky baby! Ask us what we’re feeding her! Cleverly observe that she doesn’t miss any meals! We will beam with pride at our big ol’ healthy baby and squeeze her beautiful, chubby cheeks. 🙂

How stinkin’ cute.
