Teeny Weenie at 4

I wanted to make sure I recorded CK's four year measurements from her well check.

The intake girl measured and weighed her and checked her eyesight and hearing and BP. Once we got everything down she left. And another nurse came in and remeasured CK's height. Same measurements. Then, when the doc came in he measured her AGAIN- and it was the same!

I asked what was up and he said, "Well, she went from being above average in height (80% for the most part) to now being right under average."

As usual, we talked about her diet and making sure she was getting enough calories. I wanted to pull out a picture of Anthony's mom and remind him that this was likely what she was going to look like when she was finished growing! She's 5'2" and tiny and strong and that pretty much nails ol' Charley Kate!

Anyway, she's healthy and her check up went well. She had two vaccinations and did great. She cried some but I'm pretty sure it was more of hurt feelings than actual pain. :)

Her measurements at FOUR:
Height: 39.5 in (46%)
Weight: 31 lbs, 8 oz (23%)
BMI: 14.33 (18%)
BP: 92/64
Pulse 92

And always... in comparison, her big brother at FOUR:
Height: 43.5 in (97%)
Weight: 42 lbs, 6 oz (91%)
BMI: 16 (57%)
BP: 102/64
Pulse: 84

So, yeah... there's a HUGE difference in their bodies! Ha!

Anyway, her saying still holds true... "Though she be but little, she is fierce!" This girl might come in a teeny package, but she is BIG on the inside!

No lie, probably one of my top 3 favorite photos of her ever!
