the birthday girl's stats...

we had kate's 12 month well child visit today. here are the latest "stats" (i better record them here since i can't currently locate her baby book. i know its somewhere around here...and the fact that it is missing is a bit boggling to me since the house is truly more organized than it has been in a long time! oh well...i know it will turn up in due time since i haven't really looked that hard for it.)

weight: 22 lbs. 11 oz. 75th percentile
height: 30 3/4 in. 90th percentile
head circumference: 18 inches 70% percentile (a handy fact if i decide to make her a hat any time soon)

the doctor was pleased that she has settled in and followed the same growth curve since 6 months (after all the weight gain issues in the first four or so months)....and pleased that she is quite proportional. i have always known that kater gator trumps elizabeth in the size arena (not to be overly comparison oriented...just the reality), but when i looked at elizabeth's baby book (yes...i do realize that i can find elizabeth's book quite quickly...if only i'd have put kate's book right back onto the shelf next to libs when i was finished with it!) just now to see the weight and height difference, i realized why i feel so exhausted when toting kate around. at 12 months elizabeth weighed in at 19 lbs. 11 oz. (4 whole pounds lighter than kate) and her height was 28 1/2 inches (2 inches shorter than kate). in fact, kate's measurements look much more like elizabeth's 18 month measurements of 23 lbs. 7 oz. and 32 inches long.

if you haven't already seen it, my ten smiles post is right below this one...chock full of pictures of kate's birthday party and elizabeth's "b" words.

She's doing great! My kids are the opposite. My first was heavier and taller. Hunter just turned one and he isn't quite 20 lbs yet. It's weird to see the differences in siblings.
