weighing in

And now, for our official 9 month stats.

In the pink corner, we have Frances Katherine, weighing in at a whopping 15 lbs 3 oz.  She's not on the growth chart for her birth age, and for her adjusted age is only at the 9th percentile.  At 25.75 inches tall, she won't be dunking a basketball anytime soon.

In the blue corner, Barnes Howard is checking in at 18 lbs 13 oz.  This puts him in the 21st percentile for his real age, and the 40th for his adjusted age.  Poor guy looks giant next to his petite sister, but it turns out he is smaller than average even for his adjusted age!  He's an impressive 28 inches long, though he too has little hope of ever dunking a ball.

Our little ones may be on the small side, but they are healthy, happy and growing every day.  Much to be thankful for!

  1. Wow, they have grown soo much!

    When do the doctors say that preemies tend to "catch up". Sorry I am not saying they are behind, but I guess what I mean is when does their adjusted age catch up to the birthdate?

    I hope I am not offending you with this question, just curious?
