Default tired of it

I am SICK AND TIRED of people telling me how "huge" Bella is and how "soon you'll have to put her in 12months clothes" I started crying the other day when someone said that. I think that it is so frigin RUDE when people say this. Would they tell an adult "geez, are you ever fat!!!" that's what it makes me think of. She is a healthy girl and she is NOT huge. I am so tired of it. It is so insensitive. It is like saying...."geez, s/he is so tiny...that's cute when they are just born but if they are growing on the small side....it is is just rude! I NEVER say that to people, I always comment on how cute the baby is or how adorable their smile is or whatever I notice when I look at them. These are the same people that tell you how big you are when you are pregnant......

Calvin is certianly not a big baby (he's tall though.) But he is much bigger then his sisters were at this age. The girls didn't hit the 14 pound mark until they were 4 months, I'm sure he's about that now.

People just don't think when they make comments. Maddy was huge and it drove me crazy when people thought she was older than she was (still does). Now Lucy is tiny for her age and they make comments about how small she is. Drives me equally crazy. They just don't get it.
