Big Girls

Yesterday was Celeste's two-year check-up (a week or so early) and Quinn's four-month check-up (a week or so late). They're both growing well.

Quinn was 16 pounds, 6 ounces (90th percentile) and 25 inches long (75th percentile). Her head circumference was 1612 inches. By comparison, Celeste was 18 pounds, 14 ounces, at her nine-month check-up; Evelin notes that is probably why Quinn fits well into Celeste's hand-me-downs from last summer.

Celeste was 27 pounds and 3412 inches tall. Evelin said she read somewhere that if you double a two-year-old's height, you get an approximation of his/her adult height: If true, Celeste will be a respectable 5 foot, 9 inches. This Children's Adult Height Prediction Calculator, she'll probably be closer to 5 foot, 4 inches, but it looks like it (or any of the other ones I found) isn't really set up for working with kids younger than four.
