My son was born December 19th, (due Dec. 23) and most people tell me, "oh, he's going to get one present for Christmas and birthday!" So I have made it a point to have a birthday party for him, separate of Christmas. Just curious to see what day your little one was born! And are they big for their age, average, small? My son is 30 pounds, about 37" and in the 97% range for height, weight and head growth. :)

Quoting Aliecia:

My son was born on the 26th, due the 31st. I didnt want to wait until the new year to have him, so I was induced the morning of the 26th. I wanted to bring in 2008 as a mommy! Since he was born the day after Christmas, I am making it a point that his birthday is completely seperate. When he gets school age, Im going to have 1/2 birthday parties for him and his friends, so that way he can have his friends at his party. And when his actual birthday comes around, it will be close friends and family. Im going to do that since most people are out of town for the holidays and I dont want him to feel like no one cares to be at his parties.


that is a good idea!! never thought about that lol... 



yeah, i told my family that they were NOT allowed to just wrap his bday gifts in xmas wrap cuz it was handy... told them i would even buy the wrapping if needed haha and what i did for his first bday is i had his bday party the weekend before xmas and then xmas on its regular day :)

My boy was born on the 28th :-), during the full moon. He was originally due on January 18th, but due to having gestational diabetes, the doctors were going to induce me on January 10th (for fear that he would be too big and that I'd have complications during labor). However, momma's little slice of moonlight had other ideas and was born at 37 weeks, which I was happy about because I wanted to go through it naturally (without the induction drugs). I wanted him to have his own day, which he does...in between Christmas and New Years, but hopefully we can make it work. Size wise, I'm not sure where he fits; I only know that about a month after he was born, the ultrasound showed that he was in the 63rd percentile. ~)O(~

My daughter was born on December 18th. According to the the Doctors she is right on track.
I find that she is still the smallest in her Pre-K class.. I also have made it a point to have
a birthday part for her.

My second son was Born on Christmas Eve (Due Dec.16). He was a BIG boy, 9 lb 14oz! He's still up there in the 97th percentile as well for height and weight at 3 months. We are planning to have a half birthday for him on June 24 (with his friends, in the summer) and a little family birthday party on christmas eve. I want to make sure he feels celebrated. He was an amazing christmas present for US, but I have heard from numerous friends about how jipped they felt having a holiday birthday. I might even set up a little "birthday" christmas tree for him with his birthday present underneath :)

My son was born on the 23rd of Dec. He was 9lbs 7oz. We got to come home Christmas morning :-) He's 4 and my ornery boy. We do one bday party for our 3 kids whose bdays are Nov 20, 23, and Dec 23. Ages 8(girl), 5, 4 (both boys). They don't mind a bit and allows us to have one really nice party and family can actually come even in the middle of holiday season. It works great for our family and one more memory for our kids to share together.

My son Joseph, was born under cesar and the due date was meant to be on Jan 10th but because my lil man needed to have steroid shots to build up his lungs they changed the date to the 27th of Dec. I had a high risk pregnancy but he came to this world without a hitch. He weight was 2.8kgs which wasn't soooo bad. It gets a lil tricky around xmas but somehow we manage.

My son was born on December 28th, 2007. He was average when he was born. He just turned 4. He is now 40" and 40 lbs. Probably a little bit bigger now. He was due until January 6th. Even though he was born after Christmas. He's is my Christmas present. He gets his Christmas gifts on Christmas and then we Celebrate his birthday on his birthday or the weekend after.

I'm Quita and I have twin 4 year olds born on the 17. We always have a separate party for them, whether it's a small one like last year or a large one like this year. They were born at 26 weeks both at 1lb 14oz and 1lb 15 oz, do life has been celebrated due to their rough start. Now they are both 41" and one is 35lbs & other is 35.5lbs and no major deficiencies. I've been told they are pretty tall for their age.

My oldest child was born on the 27th... he was due January 6th. I HATE having his birthday 2 days after christmas!! He usually gets a cake or something on christmas but I also plan a real party for him 2 weeks after christmas. It sucks but I have to deal with it... and my daughter (born february 1, 2011) might have to have her birthday party 2 weeks before her birthday so I only have to plan one party... but it will be difficult when my youngest child (due March 7, 2012) will be born. Im so confused! lol

Hey Denise our boys share the same birthday. Martin is a beautiful white head blue eyed boy and pretty much on the 50 % percentile. He has huge hands and feet so I presume he will be a tall boy and looking down on me in the future.

my daugther was born on the 15th, (due dec 25) and i totally understand what you are saying cause everyone tries to make her birthday and christmas has one so i have to do her birthday at the beginning of the month so it is far enough away from christmas but still in the month of dec.

My baby was born Dec. 8th but honestly I don't remember when he was due. The doctors kept changing the due date! He was born at 4:15 p.m. on a Saturday, he was 6 lbs and some odd ounces & 19 inches long. I feel like a bad mommy for not remembering accurately all the details but I was just happy that my little man was their atlast. He was tiny then but now hes like 30 lbs & almost 3 feet long if he hasnt actually gone past the three feet which I guess I should get his height. He's big for a two year old!!! He over powers me for crying out loud.!

My December baby was born on the 26th. Spent my whole Christmas breathing. LOL


My son was born on the 26th as well. He was a planned c-section though, originally due the 29th. 



He is in the 95% for weight (he was 9lbs, 3.8 oz at birth) he is around 32 lbs right now. all his other stats are in the 95% too.

My daughter was born on the 15th (due on the 5th), I was really worried about having a baby so close to Christmas and people "combining" gifts, but, so far so good. We also make a point to have a party for her. She is a little tall for her age (in the 75th percentile) but has been around only 22 lbs. for months! She has always been this way, never really got the baby chub and grew out of one peice outfits super fast!

My Son was born December 13th. I was the first one admitted that day and the last to give birth! Ended up being c-section. His due date was December 7th. My husband's birth is late November and he had said he didn't want to have any babies close to Christmas b/c his was too close as it was - oh well! So we decided before he was born that we are going to make birthdays big and special. Christmas will be more about family and traditions and a few gifts. We told our families this is how we wanted to do it... and so far everyone has followed us.

My son was born on the 12th. He weighed 7'11" and was 20in long. He is now about 25 lbs. and approx. 36in tall. Certain people say that he is tiny but I think that he is just right. Kids grow differently.
