Pebbles is on the Chart

People, I have several posts in progress going here -- a recap of my four-day NYC BlogHer whirlwind and a month-late post about Toth turning one.
But today I just had to pop on here to announce that Pebbles has found her way onto the growth chart for both height and weight.
Instead of being "below the curve," or, I suppose, by definition, first percentile, Pebbles is now in the 25th percentile for both weight and height.
She had a checkup today to get her ready for preschool. I must say I was pleased. She still looks like a wisp of a thing and she still hates eating (I know, most of us would volunteer to do her eating for her, right? And I pretty much live off stuff she's left on her plate as it is.). But the doctor reassured me that there appears to be nothing wrong with her since she has gained four pounds already this year -- from 24 pounds this spring to 28 pounds now.
This gives me hope for Toth, who had his one-year checkup a couple weeks ago and is still in the bottom part of that 1st percentile. At first our doctor thought he was weighing in at a solid 10th percentile -- until she realized that she'd been using a girl's chart for him all along.
But he, too, is growing with no leveled-out periods, so we're not worried about him either.
Maybe we can make some extra money for college by having them star in their own flea circus.
Oh, and ps! I am giving away a $100 gift card to the Chicago-area restaurant of your choice over on Frugalista today. W00t!

Congratulations. My daughter has never gotten past the 1 percentile in height. Maybe she can join your flea circus.
