Stats and a plateau

The Great Sosini had her 15 month well-baby checkup at the pediatrician's office yesterday, and the doctor said "She's perfect!" four different times. Sonia measured 31 inches and weighed in at 24 lbs 12 oz. Her growth has dramatically plateaued (which is completely normal for kids entering toddlerhood).... She supposedly lost a couple of ounces and hasn't grown any taller since the 12 month visit, but I suspect that's because it's really tough to accurately measure a squirmy baby. I can tell by how her one-piece sleeper pajamas (the kind with feet) fit that she has grown at least an inch this summer.

Anyway, the doc said that we probably caught Sonia right before a growth spurt. Based on how much I feed this child, I think that's probably right! Sosinini is now in the 75th percentile (roughly), compared to 95th percentile at 12 months old.
