Get that Stat

October 16, 2010

Allie’s statistics at the 12-month check-up (% rank from*:

Length: 28.5 inches (25%)

Weight: 17 lbs. 5.6 oz. (below 5%)

Head Circumference: 17.75 inches (50%)

So her lack of walking may be based on some physics. She may need a little more weight to support the melon up top. Nevertheless, Alice did take some steps this week and could be walking very soon!

*percentages may be slightly off due to the fact that she was measured at 12.5 months and the website only allowed monthly reading.

    Ok, Mama fact check time. According to the pediatrician, Alice is in the 10th percentile for height and the 25th for weight. Huh. So maybe we average the two sets of numbers?

    Beyond percentiles, though, in my mind, these first few wobbles mean she’s WALKING. Soon (or not . . .), she’ll be walking more, but it’s official!

  2. […] someone important is almost walking […]

    Per CDC growth chart:
    Less chubby than Marilyn Monroe
    More chubby than Twiggy
    More brains and beauty than both….

    weight less than 5%
    weight for height (length) more than 5%
