My friend's baby was 23 inches at birth. He is now 23 and 6 ft. 8 inches. (mother 5'10" father 6'4")
Babies height and weight varies, but also look at you and the babies father. Genetics plays an important role.
My daughter was 17 lbs at 4 months but by 1 yr she was only 20 lbs. Many times when they start moving they slow the weight gain down a little. My children (5) were all 21 inches at birth and were 23 in a few months.
To me your son seems perfectly normal.

Don't fret about it. No need to worry. He may grow to be a tall man, and that's okay, so don't worry. Your doc will let you know if there is something askew with his growth patterns, and, trust me, having been in that predicament myself, but on the other end of it, (my kids were big babies, but then fell under the growth lines constantly as they got older) you will only cause yourself restlessness and stress. Enjoy that he is healthy and that he is normal...truly! No worries :0)

My daughter was 12 lbs at 2 months and 23 1/2 inches long. At 2 1/2 months she was 13 pounds. At 2 months she was in the 95th percentile for both height and weight, but they said that it was just fine, she was growing in all directions and relatively proportionately and all was fine.
