Littleman, not so little.

Littleman had his 1 year check-up today. He had 4 shots, plus a finger prick-ouch!and, one of the shots was the flu shot, so it's gonna be sticky around the house for the next two days-come his party-he'll be feelin fine. What shocked me was how big he was. At birth he was just shy of 7 lbs, just over 19 inches, and had an almost 14inch head. Now, he weighs 25lbs 2 oz (upper 75th percentile) is 33 inches long(over the upper 95th persentile(also 3 inches shy of 3 feet)) and has a 19 1/4 inch head (once again, over the 95th perscentile) Loosely translated, theese numbers mean that my youngest son, at just barely shy of 1 year, is the same size as a relatively healthy 18month old, or a small 2 year old.
Conversely, Bigguy, at 4, is big for a three year old, but a little small for a four year old. Hmmm....maybe I need to come up with new names for them.
