That's more like it.

I wouldn't describe Hubs or myself as either tall or skinny.  But, for some reason, both kids have been tall for their age, and Strip is just a little bean pole.  One weigh in for Nugget put him in the 90th percentile head circumference, 75th percentile for length and 50th percentile for weight.  Basically meaning he was shaped like a Pez dispenser.  

Yesterday was his big boy well child check up.  The doctor looked at his chart and said, "Well, you are a big boy!"  I asked for his stats and it was 48th percentile height and 80th percentile weight!  Whoa!  I think he weighs as much as Strip.  Short and dumpy.  That sounds more like us :-)  The doctor and I looked at each other and just laughed.  I asked if I needed to be concerned but he said Nugget looks great.  And in his defense, it was cold, so he had on corduroy pants, a shirt and a sweater, and they only had him take off his shoes, so I'm thinking it's a little less.

You owned me with "Pez Dispenser." Come to think of it, my son is shaped that way, too. LOL!
