Growth chart for Down Syndrome

Riley went to the doctor yesterday for a check up and vaccinations so she would be all ready for school. She now weighs 34lbs and is 39 1/4 inches tall. While she is the size of the average 2-3 year old, I found the growth chart for children with Down Syndrome and she is in the 50th percentile in weight and 75th percentile in height. It is very helpful to refer to the growth chart for children with DS. Just like any other area, it is harder to compare her to typical children so having this resource is invaluable. Here is the link for growth charts for girls and boys with DS from the NDSS.

I had to share this video, little boy rapper who loves his sister just the way she is. Nothing cuter or sweeter out there!
