This morning I asked Zach to make a bet with me. I wanted to bet on what Alex’s weight and height statistics would be at his eighteen month check-up.
“I think he weighs 26 pounds 5 ounces!” I said.
I was wrong.
He weighed in at 25 pounds 13 ounces.
Zach took a guess at his height: “39 inches.”
When I laughed, he lowered his guess to 36 inches.
My guess for height was spot on. Alex is 35.5 inches tall, which is above the 97th percentile, making him, as per usual since his two month check-up, long and lean.
Even though Zach won the weight bet simply by the fact that he bet one ounce lower than I did and was therefore closer, I consider it my win.
I guess, really, it’s Alex’s win. He’s a toddler now, so he wins every. single. time.
