1 Year Appointment

Today we took the kids in for their 1 year appointment. We were surprised to find another round of shots awaited us, as did blood tests for lead and hemoglobin counts. The pediatrician was again shocked to see how well the triplets were doing, and the toddlers were equally shocked to see the four needles.

Arthur weighed the least, at 21 lbs, 6 oz (29th percentile), and was 30.75" tall (80th). His head was 48.5" around (95th?)

Betty weighed 23 lbs, 12 oz (88th ), and was 31.5" tall (95th plus). She's by far the biggest and the tallest of the three. Her head also measured 49.5" around. The pediatrician said that her head was over the 100th percentile, but we can't quite figure out that math. We do see that her height is off the chart as well, but what terminology is accurate?

Coraline weighed 22 lbs, 2 oz (70th), and was shortest at 30.5" tall (94th). Her head measured 47.5" around. Our next visit is in three months, for more shots.
