While it's true that size doesn't matter, I still get a small amount of joy in gloating about it. The girls had their 1 year old check ups yesterday and, in addition to a couple of shots, the doctor confirmed what we already knew - them's some big 'uns. Arianna is our "lightweight" coming in at 24.8lbs and 30.5 inches tall, still in the very top percentile. Genevieve continues to be just a little bigger, at 27lbs and 33 inches tall. As I'm still trying to get an idea of what "normal" is (by the way I hate that word) I looked up average heights for toddlers. Turns out we weren't even close to the 1 year old average, so I looked at the 2 year old stats. The "average" 2 year old is expected to be around 27lbs and 34 inches in height. ... Genevieve is one inch away from that mark and Arianna is close enough to be considered with in that size range. That means the girls, at 1, are healthy 2 year old sizes. I'm hoping that they slow down this growth rate or we are going to have a couple of Amazonians on our hand. Forget volleyball scholarships, they'd be ready for the NBA. All in all we're just happy that they are healthy, but it's nice to know that what we are doing (and who knows what exactly we're doing) is helping them grow up nice and strong. Just a little visual, the picture below was taken at their birthday party last week, the other little boy is their cousin Cameron born in August 2009, 2 1/2 months before the girls. I don't blame him for looking up at Genevieve, I just hope he doesn't get a crick in his neck.
