    DD has been in the <5% for height and <20% for weight for nearly her entire life. She's been meeting milestones and has been healthy, so her doctor is not concerned that she's a shorty.

    Yea. His pediatrician said that if it were years ago, she would worry but now, i guess after doing research, she said hes a good weight and healthy. o there is no concern.

    Quoting KMadsen:

    Some kids are just smaller. Personally, I think the growth charts & percentiles are stupid. Everyone grows at a different rate.

    It's funny seeing people react to things our tiny tots do that most babies that size can't. Dd impressed several people when she was 21 months old (and about the size of a 13 month old) and she was telling them very clearly the colors of anything we'd point to.

    He will catch up. My now 5 year old weighed the same for over a year. My 3 year old will eventually catch up. He's small. He's only 30lbs. And just started wearing a 3t. He will be 4 in April.
