In brief: Big Boy!

Your doctor must be weighing and measuring your baby every time you go to for a check up.
He is ~95 th percentile for weight and height. Which means he is growing very well and he is proportional as far as weight and height are concerned. If the parents are big and tall as well then this is the best growth for him. You should continue to visit his doctor and discuss his diet and his growth charts.
