I have always knows we had a big girl, and I was fully aware that we just went through a significant growth spurt. Knowing all of this, I walked into our pediatrician's office this morning fulling expecting to hear what I heard:
Delaney is off the charts!
For the first time, Delaney is officially off the growth charts for both height & weight! The good news is that thanks to her "big" genes from Daddy, and the fact that she has always remained proportionate, her doctors & nurses are not concerned. In fact, her BMI (Body Mass Index) has actually been decreasing since it's peak around the 9 month mark. She is still well below the range 75% that starts to make doctors worry! So all in all, she's a perfectly healthy, growing girl! Here are her official stats:
Height: 37 1/2" (Over 98%)
Weight: 34 lbs 2 oz (Over 98%)
Head: 19 1/4" (90%)
Not only is she big, she's tough too. She had to have one immunization and a finger poke. She didn't even flinch or cry at the finger poke, and she cried all of 10 seconds with the shot. Her Daddy is far more of a baby than that! I'm so proud of my tough girl!
