Growing boy!

The mystery behind why Cooper is outgrowing his 9 month clothes and developing a bit of a double chin has been solved... the kid is HUGE for his age! And by huge, I mean long... almost off the charts long. He had his 6 month well-baby check-up this morning and all is well with the littlest member of the Thames family. He's growing like a weed, getting close to popping in a couple of bottom teeth (which also explains the out-of-control drooling), and he's even beginning to get up on all fours and rock back and forth... say it isn't so!

Here are some stats...

Length: 28.4" or 2' 4.4" (94th percentile)
Weight: 18lbs 9oz (62th percentile weight-for-age, 20th percentile weight-for-length)
Head: 17.76" (80th percentile)

Why does it seem like Cooper is growing exponentially faster than Riley and Tyson did at this age? Our baby is growing up so quickly!
