benjamin & buddy the elf.

if you've been an avid cheers, bethani blog reader, you know my fascination with christmas. and maybe buddy the elf.

but this post has nothing to with christmas. but a little about buddy the elf.

yesterday was my 6 month check up at the baby doctor.  i look forward to every appointment. to make sure benjamin is growing properly, that he's still a benjamin (which now we are 100% sure) and make sure i'm doing okay, blood pressure wise and all. and yesterday did not disappoint.

typically at this point, baby's weigh approx. 1-1.5 lbs in the womb.  well apparently benjamin has already decided he is an overacheiver. based on the super awesome high tech sonogram tools, benjamin weighs 1.11 lbs.  seriously 6 oz over the "typical" weight in the womb.  i still have 4 months to go & the last trimester is when baby's go into super growing mode.  dear lord, help me..

but i shouldnt be surprised. husband is a big guy. and was a big baby too.

but hopefully i dont have a buddy the elf on my hands. i'm not that big. i'm 5'3''. and i can imagine benjamin sitting in my lap at 6 months wearing size 2T clothes. now that would be a picture.

anyone else have super sized babies in the womb?? or deliver a super size baby??


  1. I don't know the exact weight of my son yet, but I know he's measuring a bit large according to my bump measurements. But you can never really tell! He may be a big baby, he may slow down one week and get back to being the average weight. We won't really know until he makes an appearance! My first son was 8 lbs, and I'm 5'1", but I know women my size who've had bigger! Crazy huh?

  2. Tee Hee. :) I couldn't help but giggle imagining a buddy baby. ;) I have a 3 year old little boy, and before he was born he ALWAYS measured HUGE! They told me he was measuring like weeks ahead for his size. Then he was born...and he weighed 6 lb 12 oz! Not big at all!! (And I am 5'2'' so I get why you worry). Moral of the story...those pre-birth measurements aren't always correct. I bet you won't have a Buddy the elf in size...but personality wouldn't be so bad? :D ( "I love smiling! Smiling's my favorite!!")


thank you for stopping by!
you made my day.
