Gracie's Stats

Gracie went to the doctor yesterday for her 18 month check-up. The doctor said Gracie is right on track. The only thing I was concerned about, is Gracie's speech. I had the doctor listen to a couple of words Gracie says and the doctor felt that Gracie's speech was a bit garbled so we are going to have her ears checked, just to make sure everything is okay.

Here are Gracie's measurements:

Weight: 23.8

Height: 33.5 inches~ Gracie has grown 4 inches since January, which is quite a bit! I didn't believe that she was that tall so I had Jerry re-measure her today and yep, that is correct. When I checked the growth charts, Gracie is almost off the chinese growth charts as she is in the 97th percentile for height. On the american charts, she is in the 90th percentile for height which is still pretty high. For weight, she is in the 90th percentile on the Chinese charts and 40th on the american charts. It looks like we are going to have a tall girl on our hands, probably taller than mommy and daddy. We always get comments from other asian people in our area, saying that Gracie is big for being Chinese.

Gracie has been saying two new words in the last couple days, one being hello. It's very cute because she walks around with her hand up to her ear saying hallllooo. The other word I taught her on Monday, was Grandpa. She picked it up right away and said bampa. When we picked dad up, I had her say it for him and he said that Gracie is now back in the will!!! Oh, I also swear she said dirty diaper today, loud and clear.

That is great that she is doing so well! I'm curious to see where Boo is to compare. I think we should have our girls meet at UCLA to play on their volleyball team!
