Ivy’s 3 Year Well Check

Posted on Monday, November 16th, 2009 at 5:31 pm

Today I took Ivy to the doctor for her 3 year old well check. Everything looks good, she is healthy. I asked about whether its possible to predict a child’s height and she said yes. So she did some calculations based on our height as parents, and came up with 5’9″! I asked how accurate it was and she said usually within a couple of inches, so she is figuring 5’7″ to 5’9″.

But it should not have come as a surprise, because she plotted Ivy’s height and weight, and she is in the 95th percentile for weight (meaning 5% of kids are her weight at this age- she is 38lbs), and over 100th percentile in height! I say “over” 100th percentile, because she was totally off the charts at almost 40 inches!

Anyway, its kinda crazy that a baby that was small enough to fit in my belly is now that big! But I feel all sorts of proud and puffed up at how healthy she is, hehe.
