Our baby is... skinny?

Carter turned 9 months old yesterday so, we headed in to see good ol' (actually very young - Dougie Houser like) Dr. Voytas. Carter seems to be a little ahead of the game with his crawling and pulling up on everything and right on par with everything else. The big surprise came when we found out that Carter weighs 21 pounds 8 ounces (is that all?! He is so heavy!) and is 29 3/4 inches long.

On the charts, he is in the 90% for his height (he is taller than 90% of all babies his age) and only 70% for his weight. In Dr. Voytas' words: "he's on the skinny side, but that's fine."

What?! Please repeat. THE SKINNY SIDE.

He has thinned out a bit from all his activity. I guess it is those squeezable cheeks that had me thinking he was still my tubby baby.

Well how about all that good news! He doesn't look skinny to me but then I see through the pics you show. Anyway, he's as handsome as can be and he has those sweet cheeks to kiss.
