Anyone else have a very tiny toddler?

My DD will be two years old next month and she is super tiny. She is maybe 21 lbs. Everywhere I go everyone comments on how she is so small and how she shouldn't be talking like she is because she doesn't look like she should be. 

The doctors aren't concerned. She has always been petite, that's what they call her at the office. 

She doesn't eat that much food and sometimes it worries me.. I'm going to bring it up at her next appointment and still see if they don't have any concern with her weight. 

Anyone else ever have an almost 2 year old be this small and everything be okay and nothing wrong with the kiddo?

My 2 year old is only 23 pounds. He's always been tiny. He is constantly eating and constantly on the go so I'm guessing he just has a fast metabolism that keeps him that way.

No, but I was a very tiny child growing up. People always had to comment on my size.

My daughter who is now 11 was the same way. She is still that way now. She is the same height as my 6 year old neice and wears a size 7/8 in girls clothes. She has an atrial septal defect that they assume has kept her small.

Yes, my daughter was the same way. 6 lbs when born, and tiny growing up. She is now 7 and still super skinny, but tall.

My son is the same way. 6 lbs 11oz when born, he is almost 2 and is 20 lbs. I even bought him pediasure (guaranteed to put on weight) and he has been at 20 lbs for quite some time now. He is getting taller though, his pants are getting short. But I can still put him in some of the 12 month onsies! 

My doctor has never been worried b/c they are constantly growing, even though its the small end, as long as its constant, nothing to worry about! =]
