My girls are not fat, but stocky. My husband and I are normal to thin. They are at the upper end of the weight percentage scale, but also in height. My pediatrician is a little concerned but they seem to go through spurts of leaning out. They are very muscular. My sister and myself were built this way but grew up to never have weight issues. Anyone else have kids that were like this but thinned out?

My dd was in the 90's for height and weight until she hit around 4.5-5. She has been steadily dropping in percentiles over the past 2.5 years. She's now 7 and 48" (51st%) and 48 lbs (36%). She is average height and thin and a ballet dancer. Ds is 4.5 and he is 44" (84%) and 43.5 lbs (86%) and his docs are not concerned at all. He is proportionate. He spent the first 3 yrs of his life off of the charts for both height and weight.
