Vital statistics update

Today we had a double visit to the health centre in Veberöd. Saskia passed her "5-year control" with flying colours, copying circles, squares and drawing matchstick men. Marit was weighed and measured: 3940g and 52cm! Here's the story so far:

6 days.....2335g
10 days....2525g
13 days....2660g
17 days....2860g
3.5 weeks..3090g...48.5cm
1 month....3470g
6.5 weeks..3940g...52cm

Pretty impressive... If you plot this on a graph of the weight-for age percentiles Marit starts off 3 standard deviations below the mean but in the space of 6 weeks she has made it up to only 1 sd below. Saskia was a fast grower too but never in this Olympic class!
