We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming...

And the results are in!  Breaking news: Miss H is a small baby.  Always has been, continues to be.  The numbers go like this:

Weight: 16lbs 5 oz {between the 10th and 25th percentile}
Height: 27 inches {between the 25th and 50th percentile}
Head: large.  {Just kidding, but it's always where she has "excelled"  in the 75th percentile and holding steady.}

The interesting or noticeable part of those numbers is that she was born at between the 25th-50th percentile for weight {6lbs 9oz}.  Then a couple of months later she was solidly down to the 25th percentile.  This was "normal" because she was being more active, learning to roll and sit up {read, expending more energy}.  Well today as you can see she is measuring down again.  The doctor wasn't overly concerned, saying again, now that she is crawling, standing and cruising the furniture she is burning even more calories.  However, we are scheduled to go back for a weight check in 1 month to make sure she doesn't really slip off the charts before we can change some things up.  It will mean a switch to more supplementing.  She is eating solids three times a day now, but is still nursing with only one daily sippy cup of pumped milk with a couple of ounces of formula added in.  From her other two measurements, height and head size, we know she is still growing so there's nothing to be too concerned about at this point.  Updates to come when we go back in a month to check her weight again. :)
