Before I had kids, I never understood what all the percentile talk was about. Now that I have two kids of my own I find myself talking percentiles with the rest of them. Alyssa had her 2 year old appointment today she got her last HEP A shot, and here are Alyssa's Stats and then I will explain the percentile:
Inches: 35 1/2 (90% percentile)
Pounds: 30 lbs. 11oz. (90% percentile)
Head: 48 CM (95% percentile)
OK so if you are in the 90th percentile that means that 90% of 2 year old girls are shorter than Alyssa's height and 90% of 2 year old girls weigh less than Alyssa and 95% of 2 year old girls heads are smaller around than Alyssa's. And 10% of 2 year old girls are taller and weigh more than her, and 5% have a larger head around than her.
It's crazy, I know!
