For the last couple weeks I've been saying "Maggie just looks REALLY big to me." Every time I would make this statement Paul would say- "Sadie was the same size when she was her age." Now, on the one hand, I know that Sadie was a big baby. She has been in the 99th percentile since the day she was born and doesn't seem to be slowing down. On the other hand, Maggie just seemed gigantic to me, for her age.

So today while I was over at Nani's house with the girls I happened upon Sadie's baby book and took a look to see if my suspicion was correct. Sadie was 9 lbs 4 oz when she was born and 22 inches long. Maggie was 9 lbs 1.3 oz and 21 inches long. At four weeks Maggie weighed in at 12 lbs 15.5 oz. At eight weeks Sadie weighed in at 12 lbs 3 oz. Maggie really is a pretty big girl! She was bigger at one month than Sadie was at 2 months!

I can't wait to see how big she is at the two month appointment.

In other news I didn't get nearly as much use out of the first size of cloth diapers as I expected to (which is related to the news above). While I skipped the newborn size and bought the diapers that said they were for babies "up to 16 lbs" Maggie is no longer squeezing in to them very well. Today I broke down and ordered two dozen regular sized pre-folds. I'm really hoping these last longer than a month and a half. Now I just need to find some time to put away the baby outfits that are smaller than 3-6 months... At least over the course of two girls most of the newborn outfits got worn a couple times before they were outgrown!


  1. Wow, Maggie is a big girl! My older daughter was about four months old by the time she was as big as Maggie at 1 month.

  2. Awww. I just love big babies. Zavier was 13lbs 1oz at his 2 month checkup and is now 15lbs 4oz... I can't wait until his 4 month checkup (is on the 30th). I keep meaning to look at Kalila's baby book to see the diff, but haven't. I know he's bigger though. She chunked out pretty early despite being born so much smaller, but I don't think this much lol.

    As for diapers... I can still use the infant size prefolds, but I can't tuck the top down... He is fitting in the premium size a lot better though. LOL I ran out hte other day (all the clean ones were on the line and needed to be fluffed) so I put him in Kalila's toddler ones she never used... way too big but they work! I just had to tuck in a bit more lol.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
