Who will Peanut look like?

Written by Shannon Leigh
Now that I am getting close to D-day, I've been really wondering about what Peanut will look like (among many other things).
The last time we were at our respective "homes" I went through our baby books and photo albums and took a bunch home to scan.
I have really enjoyed going through the baby books and comparing our stats.
Matt was quite the chunker and I was pretty petite (at least at first).

I wonder if she will be blond or dark headed. Or will she be bald. Will she have curls? Will she have brown eyes or blue? Apparently my sisters and I were all born with very dark brown eyes and they never changed. I guess that isn't very common. I hope she gets Matt's feet and his pretty skin tone... :)

I know these hospital pictures are not the most flattering but they are precious and necessary!
At birth, Matt weighed a whopping 8 pounds 9 and 1/4 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long.
I weighed 6 pounds, 2 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long. (I'm the one with the bow).
This is us at 6 weeks...
At this point Matt weighed anywhere between 12 and 14 pounds and was somewhere between 22 3/4 inches long and 24 1/4 inches long.
Unfortunately I don't have any stats from 3 weeks to 6 months (3rd child you know). But to put it in perspective, I weighed 16 pounds at 6 months.
Can't wait for her to get here so we can compare the real thing!!
