Big Ben!

Big news coming out of the Malnar house tonight! Benjamin has gone from being our smallest baby at birth to our biggest baby by 2 months! He surpassed linebacker Andrew!

He had his two month check-up today and here are his official stats:

Weight: 15 lbs, 1 oz (92nd percentile) -- Andrew was 14 lbs, 4 oz and Jackson was 12 lbs, 1 oz at each of their 2 month check ups!
  
Height: 25 inches (99th percentile)

Head Circumference: 39 cm (35th percentile) -- I'm not sure this measurement is correct though, because the tape looked a little low on the back of his head to me and I had already corrected the nurse once when she had it over his ear...

Somewhat ironically, this article popped up on my Facebook newsfeed today...10 Things Moms of Chubby Babies Know to Be True. Just perfect! 

So yes, this is what 2 months of round-the-clock-on-demand-feedings looks like. =) And to all of our relatives who I told that Benjamin is wearing 6 month size clothes...I'm so sorry. He will likely be in 9 month by Christmas! 


In addition to being big, he's altogether perfectly healthy for which we are so grateful!

His favorite part of the visit was checking out that handsome baby in the mirror.

Praise the Lord for another healthy, happy, growing boy!
