|I am about 27 months here. Already too much to love|
This would not be good news for Steve and me or our children as all of us were defined as above as big babies yet none of us were even overweight as 8 th graders, not even me as at that point I had decided to do something about my chunky self, pictured in the post on a horse a few days previously, and was quite thin. We were all very tall though.
None of the grandbabies so far were considered 'big babies' at birth though Tessa and Allie were certainly close. By 4 months, all the babies excepting Oliver, even Danny the preemie who ended up the biggest, were in the 98%tile for height and weight. Julie recently looked at her baby book. Allie so far has surpassed her and Josh's growth at the same age. Will she be over 6 feet as an adult? I bet she will be close but I think we just have fast growers in our family. Even Shanna looked like she was on track for being over 6 feet but then she abruptly slowed down in her growth.
Below is Allie at 4 months and Julie at 6 months. Very similar though Allie has a wider face.
