Kirra had her 7 month appointment yesterday! She is 17 lbs and 25.5'' long. I can't believe how big she's getting! 7 months ALREADY?? where does time go, seriously?

Everything looks great except the doctor said her head circumference seems a bit big at 17.2'' i guess that's a lot of growth compared to her last appointment 2 months ago? she's going back for another measure in a month, then again for her regularly scheduled 9 month check-up, just to make sure things are ok. it was kinda funny, he also measured mine & my husband's heads and it turns out i have a big head too (95 percentile!! ***!) so she probably just got the big head genes. I'm kind of worried nonetheless & i'm sure you all know how i feel..

Besides that, everything's great. Kirra chows down on mum-mums like they're going out of style. She's starting to hold her bottle up on her own, too! Until she gets tired and then we just stuff a blanket under there to hold it up lol. She also just started rolling onto her tummy to sleep at night. It makes me a nervous wreck but I guess she's comfy that way.

Thanks for reading!!

It sounds like she's doing really well!

You are her mommy and you know best but bottle propping can be really dangerous for baby. Here is a link to some info: The Dangers of Bottlepropping - Associated Content - associatedcontent.com

Thank you MommaDucks for the AMAZING siggy!

Glad she's doing well! I wouldn't worry about the head at all. First of all it is so hard to accurately measure a baby's head. It's impossible to get it in the exact same place every time so moving it up or down can throw the measurement off quite a bit. I've had a nurse measure DS' head when he was little and then another one do it a few minutes later and they came up 1 1/2 inches different!

My boys' heads always measured off the charts. My DH and I were both there for one of the appointment and the ped said "well you both have big heads so that must be where they got it." So nice. She also said "big head means lots of brains." Sounds stupid, but my boys are really smart!
