Aaron's 1 month doctor's appointment!

Yesterday, Aaron visited the doctor for his one month check up and second Hep B vaccination shot. The doctor said that everything looked good, and the following measurements were taken (and I compared them with Peter at the same age):

Height 20 1/4 inches - 15 percentile (Peter was 22 inches - 75 percentile)

Weight 8 pounds - 10 percentile (Peter was 8 pounds, 13 ounces - 25 percentile)

Head Circumference - 14 1/4 inches - 10 percentile (Peter was 14 3/4 - 30 percentile)

Brett says I should compare Aaron to Peter when Peter was only one week old because gestationally that is how old Aaron is now (since he was 4 weeks early and is 5 week old now). Regardless, they are about the same, except Aaron isn't quite as tall... however I questioned the nurse who did the measuring, so who knows!
