I always assumed Danny was so skinny because his percentiles were so far off. He was around the 75th for height and between the 3 and 30th for weight for almost 2 years...then he pretty much stopped growing altogether late last summer. He is now in the 12th for weight and the 17th for height and he still looks terribly skinny. Is that expected when the percentiles are so close or is that just what I get for assuming.

Typically they look at height for weight percentiles. Not just weight. They want them to be close. kwim?

I agree As they get older they lose the baby fat too, so they look more slender. My DS is 3 years 5 months and weighs exactly 29 pounds, but actually looks a bit chubby because he is quite short for his age. He has more of a stocky build where Nyla is very fine boned and looks very thin. I think that has something to do with it too. His wrists are already noticeably bigger than hers just because they have a different bone structure.

He is still in the 10-25% but he looks soooooo skinny. Maybe I am just too picky on how many bones poke out... :/

ETA: That is h:w %...
