My daughter was born at five pounds, eleven ounces. However, when we left the hospital, she went down to five pounds four ounces. She was having a hard time with feeding. I do have pictures of my daughter lol of course, most mom's do, but they are on another computer. Also, I am not so sure about posting personal pictures online. I kind of have a fear of doing so for some reason. Lol, that is why my only picture on here is of our dog.

Our son was 7 lbs 2 oz & 19 inches, not tiny , not huge, so we were happy. Had been told he might be as big as 9 lbs.

aw thanks for the + on the pic....and yes my youngest was a preemie, he was born at 24 weeks gest..as for my other two..well both their father and I were adopted so we dont know much about the bloodlines etc but we do know that my bio parents were 5'2" (my mum) and 5'9" (my dad) but my ex's bio father was 6'7" LOL so there are definately tall ppl in his history

I had a boy, 7 lbs 3 ounces with a 9lb sized head! (14 1/2 inches!!! Yikes!!) Thankfully I had a waterbirth so no tearing. :-) My daughter was a slender long little thing....7lbs 4 ounces and two inches taller than my son. Ha! Her head was perfect and petite and she was a very fast delivery - 2 1/2 hours of labor TOTAL. And probably only 5 minutes of pushing.

lily with daddy at 1 week - my daughter and husband asleep on the couch
my son was 7 lbs 14 oz & 21" (and my dr said at most a 5 lbs baby bc I only gained like 25 lbs my pregnancy) my daughter on the other hand was expected to be big and at 38 weeks she was 7lbs 8 oz and 20 1/4" so she wasn't too big, but the dr feared if we waited until 40 weeks she would have been over 8lbs and too big for me to have (Im a small person with a small frame and build)

36 years ago she came in a healthy 8 lbs. 6 oz. and 20.5" long. She had 10 fingers and 10 toes and turned out to be a wonderful, wonderful human being. She is happily married with two little boys and lives about 1 hr north of me so I get to see those boys often. Parenting is the best gift of all.

right,my mother was 4 foot 9 inches & my dad was like 6 foot 3 inches but none of us kids were tall out of 5 girls & 2 boys. I had hoped my son would be taller like his biological father's family but he is average height too. If that's your family in your avatar they are a beautiful group ;) you got +'s :)
