"How old is your baby?"
"Oh, she's so tiiiiiiiiny."
It's not the first time someone has said that to me and usually I just think that they must all have gigantor babies or their babies are teenagers and they've forgotten or they're just not good judges of size. I used to just shrug it off because for a long time Birdie was in the 95% for length and has the thighs to match. Now? Yeah, she's not that big percentage-wise any longer. But she IS average (I don't want to look up the number.)
I know people don't mean anything by it, and blah, blah, blah, but I still shrink inside a little when I hear it. My heart stops just for a second now when someone asks me how old my baby is and I wonder if she's comparing my baby to hers. And I hate that I think about that at all.
