I think the stork dropped off the wrong baby. Seriously. This boy...can't be mine. He's HUGE. Compared to Kid1 - this baby may surpass him any day! He no longer fits into his clothes, he's gone all the way to the 3 - 6 month outfits. WHAT. Dude, you are only 4 weeks old!

Let me give you some perspective. There is a chart that pediatricians rank your kid on, as far as growth. 100 percentile is the largest kid in the universe for his age, and 0 is the smallest. The first Kid was always in the negative 10th percentile. Seriously. This boy? He's in the 50th. That may not sound like much to you, but for a Japanese baby - that's high.

While looking around online, I found this "height predictor" for your child. Awesome. I should screw with the calculations and put in my husband's height as 7 feet tall.

This baby also has a giant head. Ok, maybe he is mine.

Will is apparently going to be 5'10", which is okay by me since he seems to be shrinking. Kid won't eat.

I'm only 5'-9" though. That's as tall as Will's get. Wilt's can grow up to 7 feet.

I think the Size Gods must have heard ya when you commented on how little your Kid1 is compared to my huge nephew. :)

Alison and Henry were always in the (greater than) 95 th%ile for height (and Henry for weight!). According to doctors, Alison will be a good 5' 11" and Henry over 6'.

Though in 12-18 mo. outfits (she's 6 mos), Kate is relatively small ranking in at the 75%ile for height. It'll be interesting to see how tall they really end up!

Aww, my poor kids. I don't even want to try that predictor. I'm only 5'1". :(

My son was in the 95th percentile. He's about 6'3" and skinny like his dad's side. Well, my side too but we're only in the 6'1" range.

It's not my job to be as confused as Nigel. I'm pretty sure I have my ' & " straight because of that. Don't want a Stonehenge in danger of being trod upon by dwarves or anything...
