two year checkup


Today we went in for Hannah's two year wellness checkup with our pediatric nurse practitioner. Hannah is 31 inches long and weighs 20 pounds. She's down a pound from a month ago, but up a half pound from last week. All of this illness has really put a damper on her appetite. Thankfully, she's back on full feed now doing a really good job putting down a soft taco for dinner tonight, asking for more juice, then climbing back in her high chair asking for noodles. We're more than happy to make you some noodles, baby! Looking at a US growth chart for her adjusted age, she's at the 10th percentile for height and way below the chart for weight. She wears size 12-18 months clothes and 4 and 1/2 in shoes. So... we get to go back in six months for a checkup just because she's itsy bitsy and to make sure she's following her own little growth curve. We're continuing with the whole milk for the extra calories for now.

I giggled a little when Hannah was asked to stack four blocks to assess her fine motor skills. She averages stacking 7-8 blocks at home, with a personal best of 13!


  1. Glad to see Miss Hannah is still is her boyfriend! I am anxious to see what our little man weighs in at for his 2 year check up...I'll be sure to let you know....but of course Hannah always has the whole preemie thang goin' on...what's Andy's excuse? Maybe he just doesn't want to be too big for HC!

  2. Don't worry about her size! Alea will be 4 in May and weighs only 25 pounds and wears size 4 1/2 shoe. She just graduated to size 24months!!! No body believes me when I tell them she is almost 4--I love that she is staying my baby for so long :)

  3. Hi,
    She is almost exactly Kimi's size @2yo! She is more beautiful than ever! I can't believe she is 2 already! I remember her tiny baby photos! What a beauty!
