thanks, ladies....i'm definitely not worried.....just thought it was strange that all of a sudden everyone is thinking he is big for his age!...lol...dd was always at the bottom of the charts in weight....ds was born at 36 weeks and had some issues....thankfully he has overcome them...the nutritionists tried to make us feel bad for him being at the bottom of the charts but we told that that dd has alwyas been at the bottom in weight....it wasn't an issue for her and it wouldn't have been for ds had he not had some of the issues he had either.....they agreed we were right!!!....lol....he is alllllll boy!!!!!.....lol...to look at him, you'd never know anything had ever been wrong with him!

looks like he's still at the bottom of the charts....lol....that's ok.....i know he's healthy and progressing normally.....as for him being the "size of an infant"....i don't know too many infants that big!...there are a couple in his class at church that are the same age and are smaller than him and they too are healthy....i just wanted to kind of get an idea of what "average" was....thanks for all your responses!!!!
