because all three of my children are so tiny! All 3 kids had their annual physicals this week. They are all very healthy and very, very tiny!
Here are the Team Taylor Summer '09 Stats:
Kirsten: 48.5" (20th percentile) and 42 lbs (1st percentile)
Matthew: 32" (1st percentile) and 22.5 lbs (1st percentile)
...And the Chunky Monkey of the group
Daniel: 32.5" (4th percentile) and 23.5 lbs (3rd percentile) Ha!
You sure wouldn't guess how much these kiddos eat! They never stop eating! For breakfast today Kirsten had a breakfast protien shake, a scooop of peanutbutter and some crackers. Matt and Danny each had an adult-sized bowl of oatmeal, a bananna, 1/2 a cup of blueberries, and crackers. I would KILL for that kind of metabolism!!
The doctor assured us that, while they are all "officially" underweight, they are all perfectly healthy and perfectly proportional. She commented that they twins' language skills seemed very advanced and that they seemed "very smart"... but I could have told you that ;)
