Sarah had her 15 month well baby check-up this week and in addition to being in good health and on track developmentally we found out that she’s 29 1/2 inches tall (25th percentile) and weighs 20 pounds (10th percentile). So she’s a little bit teeny, and I’m OK with that for the following reasons:
- With no new baby on the horizon, I’m happy that Sarah is still kind of baby-sized and little.
- She’s very easy to tote around because she’s super light and compact.
- She can still sit in her infant car seat until she’s 22 pounds, so we can put off buying a new car seat for a few more growth spurts. Since they say you should replace infant seats every five years, this way we’re getting a LOT of mileage out of ours before we have to get rid of it.
I’m trying to be more mindful of enjoying the kids at their various stages, and I’m definitely loving Sarah’s sweet tininess at the moment!
