Dd was always in the 25% area (on CDC charts). At 10 months old she was at the 5% area. Pretty sure at almost 14 months old and 17lbs she's not even on the charts! lol

My big kids were literally off the top of the chart until they were six months old (21, 22 lbs at six months).  They gradually dropped into the bottom half of the chart over the following couple years.  Baby shows every sign of following that same growth pattern.

At her 6 month appointment, she was 15.5lbs. Now at 9 months, she's 18lbs.

At 6 months weve been just under the 25th but by a year they're under the 3rd percentile.

 I have 4 kids and they were all different.  My oldest has always been above the 90th since birth.  My second has been Mr.Average his whole life. My dd has always been petite and fell out to the 25th for weight by 6mo.  My youngest has been 50-75%.

DD just had her 4 month old checkup yesterday and is in the 10th percentile. She's gaining weight and following a good curve, just not a big girl.

Sounds a lot like my son-at 16 months old he's 19 lbs
