2 year stats?

I thought it might be fun to see how our ducklings have grown by their 2nd birthdays! THere's that old wivestale (which actually worked on me.. my mom always said when I was a kid 'you're going to be a six-footer someday', after she measured me on my second birthday, and that's exactly my height!) that you double your baby's height at 2 to find their adult height.. so let's put their:

weight
head circumference
height
grown up height?

I have to wait 2 more weeks for Grady's though... Wink

Oh fun! I was going to post something similar to this!

Addison:
weight- 28 lbs (75%)
head- 18.75
height- 34.5 in (75%)
grown height- 69 (5" 9')

Brooke:
weight- 25 lbs (50%)
head- 18.5
height- 33 in (50%)
grown height- 66 (5" 6')

Here is a link to something fun! HERE It's a height predictor. It' says it's accurate 50 percent within 0.7 inches, and a 90 percent chance that it will be within 1.7 inches. (at age 18 )

Addison: 5" 7'
Brooke: 5" 3'

What chart did your doc use? Brooke is only 25 lbs, and our docs chart showed her being just above 50%. I don't think he's using the "adjusted age" chart anymore. Oh well, all that really matters is that it looks like all of our LOs are doing great!

ETA: It's probablay different for boys and girls! So never mind!!!!

Mason's 2 year appointment isn't until May 25th, so I'll have to try to remember to do this after we go to that.

Michael won't have his appt until the 31st. Great thread idea! Looks like our ducklings are growing strong!

Ivy is healthy as a horse, complete with scrapes and bruises...

Weight: 25lbs (about 50% for WHO charts - up from 3rd % at 1yr!)
Height: 34.5" (about 75% for WHO charts)
Head: ?
Weight for height: about 35-40% - in other words, middlin' skinny... but she's FAT compared to what she used to be!!!
Oh, and the height estimate is 5'7" - She'll be shorter than me!!!

For people wanting to use the WHO charts (healthy) as opposed to the USA charts, they are found here:

We had our apt today!
Weight: 31
Height: 35.5 in
Adult height: 71 inches so 5'11" seems about right bc his dad is 6" and I'm 5'5".

We had our 2 year checkup today, and Grady's results were as follows:

Height: 36" (between 75% and 90%)
Weight: 30 lbs (between 50% and 75%0
Head: 20" (between 90% and 95%)

This was an exact reversal of his last checkup at 1 year. (Well, he always had a big head..) But then, his weight was in the 75-90 range, and his height was in the 25-50 range. So he's suddenly gotten taller and slimmer... but we still call him our 'little chubster'. Wink Guess I'd better quit with that now that he's speaking so much!

Oh and his grown height should then be 6 feet even, but if I plug the above into a calculator (along with DH's and my heights), they predict he'll be 6 ft 2 inches (I guess because I'm so tall).

Liese's 2 yr appt was yesterday:

weight: 26 lbs (50%)
head circumference: don't recall
height: 33.5" (50%)
grown up height: 5'5" by doubling height (which seems pretty accurate given that I'm about 5'5" and DH is about 5'9")

She's pretty solidly in 18-24 mos clothes, though some pants still fall off.

If we're talking about Ivy, the ones that don't fall off are pulled off!!! She wore size 6-12mo shorts yesterday!

Finally had Kaylin's 2 year appointment...

weight: 26.14 lbs (50%)
head circumference: 19"
height: 36" (95%)

Grown up height: 6' by doubling, the Pedi said she'll be a tall girl always measuring in the 95%+ for height. All of the females on Wes's side are at least 5'7 and he is 6'3.

OMGoodness! I can't believe it! DH took Kaitlyn to the doctor for her 2 year check up. She was 34 lbs and 36 1/2" which was 97% for both. I think Kaitlyn wins the award for biggest 2 y.o. She is only 4 lbs lighter than her 4 y.o. sister.

I wouldn't stress! Almost all babies in my family are nice and chunky, but grow up to be perfect! Mine must take after DH's side. His family has smaller babies. Heck, when my one sister was 6months old the doctor put her on a diet because she was so chunky! She's not now!
