Eliza now weighs 7 pounds, 7 ounces! She has gained more than a pound since birth. We’re thrilled with this, even though she is only in the 25th percentile for length (still 21 inches) and 50th percentile for weight. She is also in the 25th percentile for head size. She’s still tiny but the doctor says she is doing well. Her little belly button is slightly herniated, which is apparently no big deal and should go away by the time she is 2 years old. All in all, a good report from the pediatrician today, and we’re relieved!

Yay! I am glad to hear.
You know I was 5 lbs 12 oz. She could be as big as me one day!
Holy crap! She would be one seriously tall girl!
Don’t worry. I don’t mean she’ll be as big as me, just that she has the cellular power to be. She’ll probably be more compact, with means even more power per unit of volume. Like the concentrated venom of a baby rattle snake.
