Chloe Jo's 2 Year Stats

On Sunday, I weighed and measure Chloe Jo to see how she is doing on her growth charts. I try to do this every once in a while just to see how her curve is looking.

Chloe Jo is now weighing in at 24 1/2 pounds putting her just below the 25th percentile.
Honestly, this surprised me. I was thinking that she was putting on some weight, but nope. She weighs barely more than the last time I weighed her. She has been sick a lot this year and when she is sick, she doesn't want to have anything to do with food besides saltine crackers. This accounts for the lack of weight gain and the wonky curve. Hopefully she won't get sick again!

Her height is 36 1/2 inches putting her around the 60th percentile.
This is the time that you can guess how tall a child will be when they become an adult. I've heard/read from several sources that at a child's 2 year birthday, take their height and multiply it by 2 and that is how tall they will be as an adult. In Chloe Jo's case this puts her a tad bit over 6 feet tall! I have to write this down somewhere (probably her baby book) and see how close it is in 18 years!

We are so blessed with our happy, healthy girl!

I will not be surprised is CJ is tall, but over 6 foot is way tall for a girl! She'd better get real coordinated with the basketball :-)

Wow, she's going to be a tall girl! That calculation scares me because Annika is younger that CJ and she's just as tall now!
Looks like you had a great time at the zoo!
