When do babies cease being long and start being tall?

So a friend had a baby and we all say the baby is 21 inches long (and 10 lbs 10oz - little porker). Do we not say "tall" because he can't yet stand? That doesn't seem fair. I will refer to the new baby as a TOWERING two feet tall (everybody lies about their height - just getting him off on the right foot).

Come to think of it, I've never heard anything but "the baby is "x" inches." I like your use of descriptors, as it eliminates any confusion about what they're referring to...
