Off the Charts!

That's what Anna is!

We had her 1-yr. check-up at the doctor this afternoon and Anna's height and weight are off the charts. Because Anna has Down syndrome, they use special growth charts to track her growth. So, on the Ds growth charts, Anna's height (30 in.) and weight (20.5 lbs) are both above the charts' threshold. Her head circumference (17 in.) was 10th percentile.

On a typical growth chart, Anna would be coming in at 75 percentile for height, between 25 and 50 for weight and 5th percentile for head circumference. All my kids have pinheads...even Paige, despite her big forehead =)

All-in-all, a great check-up!
