Bigger Than We Thought

I came across this website recently, and was looking at his growth stats for his daughter's first year. I found it interesting that he mentioned she was right about average for weight, but around the 80-95th percentile for height. Of course, I had to compare Abby's stats, and I find Abby's bigger in both weight and height at 2 months. I could've sworn her doctor said she was just below average for both. But she did say that was by eyeballing the chart. I think I must've misunderstood her as far as the height. A quick search netted me this awesome site where I can enter her info and it tells me exactly where she lands based on the same charts her doctor uses. It turns out at 2 months, when Abby was 11 lbs. 11oz. and 24.75" long, she was in the 55th percentile for her weight and the 97th percentile for her height! It looks like she'll be taking after Daddy after all. (She was in the 32nd for weight and 72nd for height at birth)

They told us Gavin was 50% when he was only 10 1/2lbs at 2 months. Which is relaly the 25th. They also said his head was 75% when it really wasn't. Sometimes they are way off. She seems to be growing so well!
