Because my memory often fails me. And because you can’t misplace the internet (not that I’ve ever misplaced anything important.)
I took measurements of my kiddos about the same time last year. But – thinking I’d get around to measuring them later – I skipped the littles. And never did measure them.
This year I decided to forego the lengthy process of individual pictures. And went for the super-quick group shot.
After an after-school snack, I herded them out front. Begged them to look less irritated than they were.
Tallula measures 37″ and 32 pounds. She is in the 46%ile for weight and 22%ile for height. I haven’t ever plotted her, so this will be her reference point for future plotting. Assuming I actually remember.
Poppy measures 38.5″ and 30 pounds. She is in the 12%ile for weight and 26%ile for height. A smidge smaller than she was last time I did all this crazy plotting over 2 years ago.
Vivienne measures 41″ and 43 pounds. She is in the 44%ile for weight and 1%ile for height. She was in the 13%ile and 3%ile last time I plotted her growth. We’re just proud of our precious girl no matter where she is on the chart. Go, Vivi Cakes.
Shepherd measures 44″ and 39 pounds. He is in the 3%ile for weight and 4%ile for height. Last time he was less than 3%ile for both height and weight so he’s actually catching up. Albeit very, very slowly. Way to go, Shep Dog.
Jude measures 46″ and 45 pounds. So he is in the 8%ile for weight and 5%ile for height. He was in the 9%ile and 10%ile last time. Slowing down a smidge even though he’s added some new foods to his painfully limited palette. A work in progress.
Isabelle measures 49″ and 59 pounds. She is in the 28%ile for weight and 6%ile for height. She measured in the 64%ile for weight and 28%ile for height last time, so she has really slowed down. Still solid as a rock, though.
Sophie measures 50″ and 59 pounds. She is in the 17%ile for weight and 6%ile for height. She was 26%ile for weight and 8%ile for height last time, very close to where she was before.
Dalton measures 4′ 11″ and 105 and he is in the 82%ile for weight and 63%ile for height. He was 86%ile for weight and 62%ile for height last time. Steady Eddie.
Asher measures 5′ 10″ and 189 he is in the 97%ile for weight and 94%ile for height. He was 95%ile and 94%ile. Steady Eddie, too. And just plain big for his age.
Not quite your traditional baby book, is it?
Just feeling incredibly blessed for each and every one of my babies. And equally grateful that no one is sticking the tape measure to me.
It’s good to be the mom.
