Big Head

I won't accuse Kate of having a big head metaphorically (though she would come by it honestly--Matt and I both struggle with the sins of pride and self-righteousness) but physically, she does have a really big head!

Once again, at our regular doctor appointments, we've found that the percentile for her head circumfrence was much higher than her height and weight. 95th percentile, in fact, as compared to 50th for height and weight. My third-degree episiotomy should come as no surprise to anyone!

Kate weighs 15 lbs, 8 oz now, and is 26 inches long. The doctor said she is just great--very healthy and hitting all her milestones.

*PS, I hope it's obvious that the photo above is in a wonky perspective. Her head is big, but she's not an alien!

She'll also get a big head from the zillion times a day she's told how beautiful she is

My Shark has a big head too, but the other two are normal.

The pics of Chattanooga are really cute too!
