...apparently, I've given birth to one.
Scarlett recently had her 9 month well-baby (although she's actually 10 months) and weighed in at a whopping 14lbs 12oz and 26 inches in length. She was only 5% in length, but that's still significantly better than her weight, which wasn't even anywhere near the bottom of the percentile chart. Our (fabulous) doctor isn't all that worried, but he'd like her to come in and have her weight checked at the end of the month, just to be sure she's growing.
She's a tiny little thing, but we love her anyway. She's all dimply smiles and giggles and is such a ray of sunshine and joy in our home. Not to mention, she has the biggest grin I've ever seen. Her smile to face ratio is insanely unbalanced in favor of her smile. That's ok, I still think she's beautiful.
On a random note, a friend of mine sells aprons she and a friend make...and I just gotta say, they're absolutely fabulous (then again, everything Carrie does seems to be fabulous;). To top off the rampant fabulousness, they're having a free give away! yay! yay! Visit here to enter.
Stay tuned, when I get up the motivation I'll post some pictures from our trip to Amarillo and Georgia looking like a homeless man (big stretch of the imagination there, I'm sure)...
