Light Weight

Brittain is small for her age. She is barely at the 3% curve, at least for her weight. She has 3 more pounds to go before I can turn her forward facing in her car seat. She can easily put away more than her older brother and sister at meal time. I don't know what the deal is. Maybe the fact that she has a minimum of 4 poopy diapers a day has something to do with it. Is that normal?
My 6 month old nephew? He's not so little. He's not HUGE, but he easily outweighs Brittain who is 8 months his senior. Sadly, I haven't even met Braxton in real life. My cute sis-in-law Beckii thought it would be fun to compare their size and came up with the laundry basket idea. You can see her cutie pie here.
This turned out to be much more fun (and difficult) than I ever imagined, as Brittain was much more interested in standing and pushing the laundry basket rather than sitting in it. This girl must be starving. At least that might explain why she was eating blue and green watercolor pencils as I went to fetch the laundry basket.

Mason thought it looked like great fun too.

I love this one of them doing the exact same thing. The best part? They were entertained for the next thirty-something minutes.

Adrianna is at the 3% curve too. We are gonna have two petite chicas :) She is such a doll!

I've never had a tiny one. But all of my kids did poop 4-8 times a day until they were about 18 months or so. I know that you really needed to hear that today.

Julie- 4 to 8 times!!! I guess I should be counting my blessing she holds closer to 4 and 5. I thought that was excessive. Good to know!

She is super cute. Sally might be bigger than her too! She is 18 pounds, 9 months. There's something so precious about a little one that can't even sit forward in the car, but can walk around. Oh, and Sally only poo's once a day, unless she's on amoxicillian then it's like every 10 minutes.

I love the laundry basket pics. I have some of those when my girls were little. They used to pretend like they were in a boat. They would even get sticks in order to "row" themselves down the river.

I can't wait to see the pictures!!!! Cory is going to pick them up on his way home from work. Is that okay? I'll call ya later just in case you don't check your blog before then.

Love ya!!

I love that Dest! Brittain is adorable!! And you already know this I think, but my boys were teenie too. Jakey is roughly 23 lbs. and he is almost 3. ;)

I love the the new look of your blog and holy cow, the kiddos look so big! Mason is looking more and more like Ryan as a little boy! Brittain is so tiny and petite, she's such a doll. My kids were all skinny little things (Sylee was a chunky baby though)and still are. I don't think Brett is even out of the 10%tile for his weight, they get that from their dad for sure! She'll be greatful for that down the road!
P.S.-Did you get our package? The kids have been asking,and I was just curious if it made it or not!
