Another "Average Child"

S. Theodore weighed in at 15 lbs 1 ounce and 25 1/4 inches long. That makes him 50th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height. When he was born he was 95th-100th percentile for weight. That's a big change. If you look at the lad he's big and healthy... Not skinny. The Dr. remarked that americans are getting fatter and some adjustments have been made to the percentile charts to reflect that. I guess it's good to be average sometimes.

Libby was the same percentages as Teddy, weighing 35 1/2 lbs.

Everything looks great. The Doctor couldn't feel Teddy's clavicle fracture, this means it's all healed up! Praise the Lord.

AVG are Vi's initials. We need her to get to the average weight. :)

Average is just a word with some numbers that someone decides on. He's so sweet and beautiful, he is precious, and a gift from God. Average? Nothing doin'! Love you guys!
