At four months, Margaret was at 50th percentile for weight, 75th percentile for height, and 50th percentile for head circumference.

Now, at nine months, she is at 20th percentile for weight, 40th percentile for height, and 75th percentile for head circumference.

Hmm.

She moves on her own now, and is fed primarily breast milk, right?

A whole lot of babies I know drop down the weight chart in this time period. Silly formula-based percentile charts.

She does indeed move on her own... quite a bit. She gets formula when she's with Jomkwan and breast milk the rest of the time. Basically she is one lean, mean crawling and cruising machine.

Our kid bounced up and down all over the charts. Individually, they grow in fits and spurts, not in nice smooth curves like they do in aggregate.

I keep meaning to put his height and weight into excel to show how jaggy it was in the first year, but I'm lazy.
