Well Check-Ups

The girls had their well exams on March 14th.

Delaney at 6 months

Weight - 15lbs, 10 oz (35th percentile*)
Height 27 in (85th percentile)

* Delaney's weight percentile has been decreasing with each well check. Dr. Caplan said the growth chart is based on a formula-fed not breastfed curve. When he plotted her on the W.H.O. (World Health Org) chart which is based on breastfed babies - her percentile curve is less sloped. He's comfortable with her weight, said she's doing great and to keep doing what we're doing!

She's still not interested in a bottle and wakes up 1-2 times a night...and while it's taken me awhile to accept...I really am okay with our routine! She's only this little for a short time and if I have to be up a few times at night or the only one to feed her...then that's just how it's gonna be. I love holding my baby girl, even in the middle of the night!

Gracie at 3 years old!

Weight 37 lbs (91st percentile)
41 inches tall (94th percentile)
BMI - weight to height ratio (58th percentile)
which means she's the right weight for her height.

Such a rag-a-muffin!
She scored perfect on a cognitive computer test,
was able to draw a circle and has 20/20 vision.
Dr. Caplan said she's smart and healthy!
We're so proud of (little) big girl!
