    holy cow! my wife snagged some pics of the kids in their christmas outfits and i was astounded.
    lil' manimal has shot up like a weed! i swear he was like 2' tall and 20lbs last week!

    man, i'm freaking out here...any other parents close their eyes and open them to alice in wonderland growing kids?

    i'm stoked that he's big enough to do some urban riding w/ me but sad 'cause he's not so little anymore (although he's still dwarfed by the other kids in his gymnastics class ;) )

    the pic that made me freak out

    We can't keep our kids in clothes - they grow out of them too fast! Our 8-month old son is in the 160th percentile in length and the 50th percentile in weight. Our daugther (3 and a half) is taller than my 5 year old neice.

    Gotta love kids... My wife has been hauling out the infant clothes in preparation for our new one. We can't believe our daughter (who i almost 2) used to fit into them!

    Now how long will it be before some idiot posts that "he'd hit it"?

    noah is 5.5, mikaela is 2.5 and emily is 15 months. the funny thing is that the youngest is heavier than her older sister :confused:

    the two older ones didn't even make it on the growth chart until they were 2.5 respectively. mikaela is still super tiny at 20 pounds but they've put her in the 3-4 yr old gymnastic class :thumb: i wish i could do 4 pull-ups when i was 2 ;)

    Just out of interest Manimal what's his height and weight? He's almost the same age as my youngest, be interesting to compare as kids in Australia tend to be bigger and heavier than kids of the same age in Japan.

    Wow. I got a buddy who's selling a large Orange 222. Looks like Lil'Manimal just about needs it!

    Doesn't look like Mikaela can fit inside one of your knee pads anymore, either!

    I figure she will be top out at about 6'... if that saying about measuring a kid at 2 then doubling it for their max height is true.

    I thought I was the only one with a tiny kid. My daughter is just over two and the only time she comes close to weighing 21 lbs is when she doesn't **** for a few days. It good to know to there are other kids out there barely/not on the growth chart.

    I love the little kid flat top!

    Everyone had those when I was that age... we all looked like little NASA engineers back then.

    :D

    he's about 38" tall and i'm guessing around 35lbs in weight. i'm not sure about his exact weight as it's been a while since his last visit to the dr. and at that time he was 32lbs. he's still very small when compared to his peers, most of the kids in his kindergarten class are around 50lbs and well over 40".

    Polandspring88 - i'm getting him started early in the path to being an oppressor :D

    hot off the press........
    a co-worker dabbles in photography and wanted to test out her new d70 so we took the kids to a local, modern-day castle and snagged a few pics. i'd love to back to this place in the spring when the garden is blooming. this place is booked up year round for weddings on the weekend.

    caught in the act ;)

    the only pic w/ all kids sitting still, minor miracle at work here

    yungin'

    another good pic of my growing boy on the castle mote wall
