Which Elijah was calling "ketchup" but learned the correct pronunciation before it was time to go. :-)
Anyway, we took Daniel and Elijah to the doctor for a visit. Both are fine: she commented that Daniel was very advanced and that Elijah is "articulate."  Both were showing off terribly - Daniel got into everything, smiled and talked until the doctor looked at him and then yelled bloody murder until she quit, and Elijah talked nonesense (couldn't remember the cat's name, said all 4 boys slept in the same bed, and his favorite food was broccoli) and sang the ABC song.
Daniel is 7 1/2 months old; he weighs 18lbs and 11ozs, which the CDC tells me is 50th% for his age. He is 27" long, which is also at the 50th percentile.  This is surprising to find, as he is a total roly-poly.
Elijah is 3 yrs and 4 months. He weighs 39lbs, about the 95th percentile, and 39 inches tall, the 90th %.
Riah went with to help distract the one not being examined.
After the doc, we had lunch at Golden Corral, and then to Walmart for a few things.

Does anyone know where to get After Eight mints? I've been craving them and haven't seen them anywhere.

It's surprising that Daniel is only 18-11 at 27 inches long. Rebecca weighed *more* than that when she hit 27 inches (at 10 months old) and she has never appeared "roly-poly" to use your words. :-)

And of course, since she was older, she was in a much lower percentile at that time.

Yes, Wil, that is odd. I suppose Rebecca's weight was a higher proportion of bone and muscle, but I wouldn't have thought it would be much of a game changer at this size.
