I took John to his 6 month check up today. He has slowed down considerably on his impressive growth curve. He only gained 1 lb 5 oz in the last two months (whereas in his first 4 months he gained 11 lbs). Here are his stats:
Height: 28. 25 in (94%)
Weight: 20 lbs 8 oz (91%)
Head Circumference: 17.75 in (84%)
So, as you can see he's lost his largest baby in the world status. We might not be able to capitalize on these new percentiles as they don't sound nearly as impressive as 100% for both height and weight. He might have to change the title of his memoir from Baby John: Biggest Baby in the World to Baby John: Not the Biggest Baby in the World, but Still Pretty Big.
He's doing well and continues to be a healthy and happy baby. I am very thankful for him and his health. It is hard to believe that within the next 6 months (or thereabouts) he'll be walking and talking and eating grown up food and perhaps ready to take on a part-time job! The time goes quickly!
