I got 5½ hours of sleep last night! Thank you, God!

Yes, it does get annoying hearing that Caspian is "big" and answering, "Actually, he's in the 50th percentile, so he's exactly average." I think part of my annoyance stems from the fact that I don't want people to perceive him as "big" just because his mommy is, KWIM?
I put his length (28") and weight (20lbs, since he was 20lb 5oz clothed) into one of those online Growth Percentage Calculators, and here were his results compared to 8 month-olds:
    Length = between 50th and 75th percentile
    Weight = between 25th and 50th percentile
Here are his results compared to 9 month-olds (he's actually 8½ months):
    Length = between 25th and 50th percentile
    Weight = between 25th and 50th percentile
So he's actually skinnier than average, no matter how you calculate it! HA!

We just used H&R Block's online tax filing service, and it was sooo easy, even with all our self-employment stuff. You just follow the prompts on every page and enter your info. It even keeps a running tally of your return as you go along! You can have your return direct-deposited too, so you can get it even faster.

I'm taking some time off from blogging. See you next week!
