Statistics

Max had his twelve-month check-up on Tuesday, and he is (surprise) still perfect. He now weighs in at twenty three pounds, two ounces, bringing him up to the forty ninth percentile for his age. He is thirty two and three quarters inches tall, (ninety-eighth percentile), and his sizable noggin is still sizable (fifty centimeters around and off the charts percentile-wise). Not bad for a scrawny little urchin who weighed in at five pounds not so very long ago! Max is doing everything he is supposed to be doing as far as language development, social skills, and gross motor skills, and his lurking and hoarding skills are far above average for his age, as you can see from this photo. Max did not enjoy any part of the doctor's appointment, and said so frequently and loudly. He seemed to find getting weighed particularly offensive, and retaliated by peeing on the scale, the nurse, the wall behind the scale, and the sticker the nurse offered him as a bribe. He is also above average on the vengeance peeing scale. Way above average.

my head hurts from reading all those numbers completely spelled out but it's awesome to know Max is still top of his class

Completely spelling things out is my rebellious revolution against your crazy LOL PWN computer speak.

The vengeance peeing chart was very difficult for the Pediatricians Association to hammer out. As was the Lurker / Hoarder scale. Well done, Max. He nows weighs roughly three times more than Julia. Who's the urchin now?
