Baby Graphing

Recently sister sibling number eight and our niece both reported their respective 6-month-old sons' progress on their growth charts.

I think the predictions doctors make based on those charts are interesting. When my daughter Bridget was about three, her height was not even on the chart and the doctor said "Do you have any small people in your family?"

I was like: "Well, my husband's sister is only 5' 1''

And he said: "No. Really small."

And then I freaked out and I kind of shouted: "YOU MEAN DWARFS???"

I thought he was trying to tell me Bridget was going to be a little person. But he was just breaking it to me that he didn't think she would reach five feet. She still hasn't, but we are just and inch away and hoping to prove him wrong.
