Growing Like Weeds: Stats for Stella and Liam

This morning I took Liam and Stella in to the pediatrician for their annual check-ups.  Although I haven't blogged about it, Liam turned 4 in May and Stella turned 2.  I'm not quite sure how it's possible that either of them is that grown up, but these little rascals refuse to listen to me when I tell them to stop growing.  I may resort to desperate measures.

Liam, my young little man, was quite the sweet patient today and was very thrilled that no shots were on the agenda.  Here are his 4 year old stats:

Height:  40 5/8 inches (60th percentile)
Weight: 39 lbs. (75th percentile)

For a comparison, Nora was 34 lbs.  (55th percentile) and measured 39 7/8 inches  (75th percentile) when she turned four.

Stella Marie was very excited to see Dr. G today and was an excellent patient.  She stood still while he did his examination and proceeded to greet everyone in the office.  Here are her two-year-old stats:

Height:  33 1/8 inches (25th percentile)
Weight: 26.5 lbs.  (50th percentile)

Again, just for fun, here are the stats of Liam and Nora when they were two:
Liam:  Height:  35.75 inches (85th percentile);  Weight: 28 lbs, 10 oz.  (65th percentile)
Nora:  Height: 33.5 inches (45th percentile);  Weight: 24 lbs. (<25th p="" percentile="">
It seems like Stella is much more like her sister than her brother in height, but right in the middle in weight.  She is our sweet, squishy, fluffy girl!

So, here we go starting another year for these two.  They will grow and mature in so many ways, I'm certain.  Liam is particularly excited about his baby brother, and Stella will surely not know what hit her when he gets here because she is definitely a Momma's girl.  I can't wait to see what this year holds for them!
