I just wrote the post on "she won't eat."  I found a growth curve precentile calculator online, and dd is in the 39th percentile in weight and 23rd percentile in height.   That is much better than I had thought, so I'm not so worried.  Here's the link if you want to try it:

Interesting.  I'm still convinced each doctor uses a different chart, lol.  I've been told different things by different doctors.

Anyway my oldest who is almost 10 is less then 3rd percentile for both weight and height.  Not surprising.  She's been basically off the little graph they use at the office for years.  She's only 4' tall and 45lbs (give or take) and that's with her clothes on.

The big shocker was my youngest.  She'll be 4 in a couple weeks and was in the 91st percentile for height.  I knew she seemed tall but I didn't realize how tall (she's 42-43") and right in the middle for her weight.  Making her tall and skinny.

My middle daughter seems to be shrinking, lol.  She always hovered around the 50th percentile for both height and weight and is now around the 35th percentile for height so she isn't growing up so much any more.  She is a little short for her age and that just says a lot for my oldest who is the same height.

And then there's my son who was around the 87th percentile for both height and weight.

Both my kids are 13th percent for weight (skinny boys).  My 4 year old is 80% in height and my 2 year old is 66% in height.

My daughter is a tall girl so her weight is normal for her height which this chart says the same thing my ped is . Its WIC that thinks other wise apparently she is obese at almost 3 1.2 yrs old. She is 91% in weight ( 39lbs 2oz ) and 86 % for height ( 3'4" ) . She will be 4 in October and eats healthy min junk food ( only special occasions ) and plays a ton even outside so how is she obese lol. I know they are going by me because I became overweight after I had kids and was underweight my whole childhood and teen years and literally didn't get overweight till I got pregnant with my first child at 18 lol. So that must mean she will be overweight of course !! People are so dumb.
