Six Weeks

Yes, my baby is six weeks old today. It is hard to believe how fast time has flown. She has grown a lot too. In six weeks she has grown 3 inches, 1/2 an inch a week. Logan did the same at this age. I used to measure him once a week for the first 10 weeks or so and each week he was 1/2 an inch taller. It was cool. This time I didn’t want to go to the trouble, but I guessed it would happen to Lila and it did.
Imagine if this growth rate continued until the child’s first birthday – after one year a child would have grown 26 inches taller than their birth height. If that were the case, Lila, who was 20 inches at birth, would be 46 inches or almost 4 feet tall by her first birthday. Yikes. And if it continued on into her second year she would be exactly 6 feet tall by her second birthday. Isn’t it a good thing they slow down?

  1. Hey there Mercy I sure know what you mean… you know what else is true, these kids look a lot older in the pictures than they actually are ! God bless your angels Sweetie, and your blog sure keeps us updated on your family. Love, Tina

  2. Hi Mercy,Wow, it is hard to keep up with all the blogging world & the facebook world too. You asked me where the saying "There is no rest for the wicked" is from. It is Isaiah 57:21. I'm happy to hear you are enjoying life with two children. The adventures never end. I love you.Dad
