Zach Update

We had our "6 month" appointment today (although he'll be 7 months tomorrow!). He got his shots, poor babe. He now weighs 6.6 kg - or 14 1/2 lbs. He's gone up, but he's dropped percentiles, so we go back in a little over a month to check in again. We're actually hoping to get back in with our doc in T.O. Jean-Paul and I are on the same page on this one. We're not really happy with our new doctor and we LOVED our old one. Hopefully she can take us back - although that does mean driving to Toronto for appointments....

What is the percentiles thing? This probably something I should know, but I don't...

50 percent is "average". Zach and Alex generally fall around the 5th percentile, so that means 95% of kids are bigger (I think!)

Kinda like IQ. If you're at the 98th percentile for IQ, you're amongst the smartest 2%

Got it! Thanks for the explanation. Funny...that's the same type of system they use for grading the Law School Admissions Test.
