    Okay...First of Gracelynn had a 1 year check up on October 11.
    She was 25lbs and was 30.5 inches long.
    Both of those are on the 98%.
    Her dad is like 5 foot 6/7
    and Im only 5 foot.
    I keep getting people telling me that she is tall for her age because she is much taller then babies around her age.
    Is she going to be tall? Or does she just seem like she is tall now?

    That does seem pretty tall... but I don't think she will get that tall because you and her dad are on the shorter end!

    I don't think you can really tell when they are this young, though I think the "common thought" is that when they are two their full grown size will be that x2. Arianna was 19.8lbs (25%) and 29in (50%). Though I know she will be short, lol.

    Also, checkout infantchart.com it tells you the %s of all her lengths/weights etc. It says 30.5 in is in the 75.9%, almost 80%

    Amelia was 52cm/20.5 inches when she was born and at 15 months she was 81.5cm/32.1 inches (91st percentile) She looks quite big for her age too. :shock:

    Ut oh, I hope 25lbs isnt the 98% percentile cause if it is my mom's gonna have a field day at me about her weight :wacko:

    I think Syri is probably around there too which drives me crazy as i'm 5' and have a hell of a time carrying her around and getting her into her car seat (we have a 2 door car xP) fob was only about 5' 5" -5' 7" tops but his mom is a beast and so is his sister so if Syri turns out a good deal taller than both of us I wont be surprised.

    edit: her 1 year is on monday but she's in 18m clothes so somewhere around 30.5 &#8211; 32.5 in, 24.5 &#8211; 27.5 lb

    by my doctors chart it is 98 percentile.
    gracelynn has been at that since she was a few months old it doesnt mean they are over weight or anything.

    I know it doesnt but my moms already had a go at me 'ya know she's very chubby...you shouldnt feed her so much, you're always feeding her. blahblah'

    Way I see it is babies are usually chubby and she hasnt started walking yet which is when people say babies burn off the baby fat anyway.
