Head, Paper, Now

Monday was a big immunization day for Ms. Hayden. I was rifling through the papers afterwards to look for her new medication dosage and glanced at her percentiles. I saw 92.98% and assumed it was her weight. Later I realized it was her head circumference. And there's a 60 percentile point spread between her head and weight percentiles. What? I carry that kid around all day, I thought for sure she was up in that 90th percentile. What's that delicious chub made of? Marshmellows? Probably.

So...whatever. Nobody cares about percentiles unless it's really out of the ordinary. I was more excited that my kid has an unusually large head for her body and I get a tidy reason to post one of my all time favorite movie moments.



Actually, this one makes me laugh harder.

Hayden is so adorable, I wish i could just squeeze her. Were did you get her cute head band? I always have the hardest time finding cute hair accessories for Keira. Hope you guys are doing well. We miss you.

Oh my gosh! Bring her back to me! The holidays were an absolute dream, I'm so glad we've been able to get so close to your precious little ones over the past few months. We were definitely spoiled because now I'm having Hayden and Abbey withdrawals. Will you please mail them to me?

I got that particular headband from my friend, Chantel. She has an awesome website at http://www.thedarlingdaughter.com/home.html

Then I crocheted the flower. They're my favorite hair accessory right now :)

Erica said...

Okay, although Hayden is darling I was actually going to comment on the movie! I love that movie so much and between that and Austin Powers I am reminded of our youthful days in Jr. High. Good Times!

I've never seen a crotched flower before. You are quite crafty...I wish I had your talent. I saw those headbands your friends sales... I need to get some. Mady is barely on the charts. How much did Hayden weigh? Mady is 11 months and almost 14 lbs.
