Remi's growth stats:

This information is interesting to about .03% of you. But I am going to post it anyway. I'll include some pictures of baby fat and Remington's cuteness to keep the rest of you here.

Our sweet boy is now 3 months old!

His stats:
25 inches long = in the 75th percentile
13.8 pounds = in the 35th percentile
15.75 inch head circumference = in the 10th percentile

Since birth, he's grown 6 inches, gained 6 pounds and 2 ounces, and his head is almost 3 inches bigger (so glad I didn't birth him now).

He is right in between sizes now and wears some 0-3 and some 3-6 depending on the brands. The cute sleeper he is wearing above is one of my favorites that went in the "too small" box recently.

He is on track with his milestones and is still a very delightful baby. He loves his routine and sleeps very well for naps when we are home. Night time he sleeps for one long stretch, but I haven't been able to manipulate him into a night that is restful for me as well (usually about 7pm to 1am). Recently he has been eating more often, the signs of a growth spirt and I try not to be frustrated when I have to get up in the night for a hungry baby. I dream of sleeping all night. It has been years. Literally.


  • holds head steady
  • does push-ups
  • bears weight on legs
  • squeals, gurgles, and coos
  • interacts and makes eye contact
  • recognizes voices and people
  • turns toward loud noises
  • brings hands together and thinks he is super cool
Thanks for enduring. This will help me later when I am compiling for Rem's baby book. Like in 17 years or so.

I am a total stranger to you...but a sister in the Lord via Melanie Scherf's church in Pittsburgh. I am thrilled at the news of Phil and Mel's engagement, and checked out your blog after looking at the pictures they both put up on their blogs. I love the enthusiastic love for the Lord, your family, and homemaking that come shining through. May you be richly blessed in this season of short years, but often LONG days! Janet in Pgh

I'm one of the .03% ;) Can you share what schedule you have him on? I keep thinking I should try one with Millie but not sure how to get it going or what schedule is best. You can email me directly markcarrie dot peeples at gmail dot com. If you have a chance. I realize you have a lot more going on in your life ;)

I have to admit, I rolled right past the stats but, Oh loved the pictures!!!!!!Thanks for sharing them.

What a cutie! I love baby pictures :) Sounds like he's growing and developing just like he should which almost makes those sleepless nights worth it.

I always have to refer to my blog to fill in information in the kids' baby books. I only have the date of Ethan's first tooth recorded. The rest came in but don't ask me when!

I must be one of the .03%. =) I'm beginning to learn all about those YEARS of unrestful nights now that I have 2 children. Sigh. But I like the phrase another commenter left: it's a season of short years, but long days. Oh, how true!

He's growing just beautifully! Camille still bobs her head and won't push on her arms or legs but I know it will come. I hate putting away the cutest clothes, too, but then I look at her 3-6 month Gymboree stash and I'm excited again:-)

Sherri said...

definately part of the .03%:)
The monkey suit was darling thanks for the pictures. He is growing so fast! (Does anyone miss the grandma in front of my name or am I just having an identity crisis? If it matters to either you or your sister I will take the time to change my identity, if not I won't because I felt a little silly signing other peoples blogs as grandma and I could never remember to change it)

Way to go Remy! I have a little girl that is very excited to meet you. Actually she just might be hungry or need a diaper change, but you know how it is.

Milestones are the greatest!
