Growth

On 25 December 2007 I was 9.5kg (21lbs).

Here’s the latest version of my growth chart (weight), and my growth chart (height).

Superimposed on the chart are the World Health Organisation Child Growth Standards, which show the range of weights of babies at each age. The ages of premature babies are corrected by counting from their due date rather than their birth date.
