4 Month Old Comparison's and Mae's Growth

Mae had her 4 month check up today and all is well! She's growing well and doing what she's supposed to. :)

She weighed in at 13lb 10oz (50th percentile) and was 25.5 inches long (80th percentile). She is actually shorter and lighter than Arabelle and Bo were, so she's going to be our little peanut it seems!

Considering she was born off the chart on weight and length (9lb 10oz and 22 inches), it may appear that she's not growing like she should, but Arabelle seemed to follow the same growth pattern (quickly dropping to the 50th percentile for weight, which she is still at). Mae nurses well, is content between feedings, and has some sweet fat rolls, so we aren't concerned. Considering she grew 2 inches in 2 months, I'd say she's just fine!

At 4 months, Arabelle weighed 14lb 10oz and Bo was 18lb 7oz (hefty!!!). Arabelle was 26.75 inches and Bo was 26.5 inches long.

Here's a comparison of them at 4 months old. Arabelle on top, Bo in the middle, and Arabelle in the bottom. Everyone says she looks just like Bo, but I still see both of them.


  1. I think she looks a lot like Arabelle! Though yes, I do see some Bo. She's a perfect mixture.

  2. I def think she's a perfect mix of the two...and some beautiful uniqueness of her own too :)
