2 year stats

Jack and I visited Dr. Cattaneo yesterday for his 2 yr check up and he's healthy and BIG! 
Weight: 32.2 lbs which is just over 90th percentile
Height: 37 inches which is 98th percentile (phew!)
Head circumference: 19.75 inches which is around 85th percentile

I told my coworkers today about his stats and realized as I was saying the numbers out loud, that I better start saving for wardrobe and shoes for his teenage years...he's going to grow like a weed! height predictor (which I know is just an estimate) said that Jack will be 6 ft 4 in by the time he reaches 18!  WOW!  The disclaimer is that "there is a 50% chance he'll be within 0.8 inches and a 90% chance he'll be within 2.1".  And boys keep growing until about 21, so he could be taller!!  Holy cow! jaw drops just thinking about this.  It will be interesting to look back on this post in 16 years and see how they "guesstimated"! 
Until next time...

  1. Oh my gosh---that could totally be right! I wouldn't doubt how tall he will be though!! It will be interesting in 15 years to look back and see how close that prediction is!
