Today was Marin's half birthday. We celebrated by taking her to see Dr. Santos and getting shots. Not fun for her, but it's always interesting to see how she's grown (and to compare her to her big brother). Both kids did very well at our appointment. Kaden sat quietly while I talked to the dr. and as a reward the nurse gave him a popsicle. Marin did fabulously until the shots, then, she lost it (and, unfortunately for me, didn't "find it" again the rest of the day...she's been miserable...and has a bruise to show for it!)
She weighed in at 17 pounds 15 ounces putting her in the 85%ile for weight. She is 27 3/4 inches tall. This puts her literally "off the chart" for height. If you've seen the growth curves, she's outside (to the left) of all of them! Even Kaden never achieved this status (guess they have different scales for boys and girls...I've always wondered about that). As I'm looking at this, I'm noticing that their heads measured exactly the same (17.5 inches). Marin's however puts her in the 90%ile and Kaden's was only in the 70%...strange.
In comparison to Kaden she is just a quarter inch shorter than he was at this age and 26 ounces (or one pound 10 ounces) lighter than he. All in all, I think they are on VERY similar growth patterns. It's so fun to see.
Now, since you endured all the statistical chatter, here's something fun for you....
Happy 6 month birthday sweet Marin!
