    Kynon was 7lb 8oz a month early, and strangely I had a small bump! He was still jaundiced and had fluctuating blood sugars though so although he looked full term size wise he wasn't really, he seems about a month behind with development stuff too so far, but is bigger that other babies the same age, just a big boy! Hope your cousins baby is doing well x
