Annual Checkups

I took Solana and Chloe for their annual visit to the Pediatrician last week. In the spirit of documentation I'm posting the results.

Solana - 6 years
49lb and 46.25inches. 75th%ile in both height and weight.
She's easy - the picture of health. Whew!

Chloe - 2 years
22lb = 6th%ile
33inches = 23rd%ile (length)
17.75inches = 5th%ile (head circumference)

We can't be anything but pleased with her growth. I sometimes worry about her texture issues and the fact that she still eats mainly purees. I've really been pushing her on trying solid foods and that often takes such a long time that she ends up eating a lot less food than she would with just puree. But she's growing and getting a stronger hold on that growth chart every time she's measured. All the doctors seem happy with her growth so we're thankful!

Yay for the Hendrickson girls! Don't worry about Chloe and the solids, as long as she is not totally averse. Just give her time. She's growing! Wish I could say that for D.... Although, Lucy is also a peanut. I think Solana towers over her.

Go, Chloe, Go!
I need to measure Mia...She and Solana are probably very close!

I love Well Baby visits!
I know I have mentioned it before, but Paige ate pureed food FOREVER. Maybe it's just a picky chick 'thing' Haha. She is still weird about the texture of food.

I just measured Kelly and at 5 1/2 she is also 46.25 inches :D, but is 54 lbs. (she was 70% height & 90% weight at 5yro)
Mikey is 28 lbs at 23 months and I can't catch him for height... At his 18 month check up he was 25% and Mike was not pleased -- he thinks he is too tiny for football.
DJ's HEAD was always off the charts... but was always 95%
Paige was 10%-12%

Now Paige and I wear the same shoes and DJ's feet are a size bigger!
