(sam showing off his post-freezepop tongue)
for posterity, i thought i'd post sam's two-and-a-half-year-old stats (from a month ago):
height — 35.75 inches (40th percentile)
weight — 27.44 pounds (23rd percentile)
the numbers make him sound kind of small, but he certainly doesn't seem small to me (particularly when i need to carry him for any length of time). it may, however, be his larger than average personality that makes him seem SO BIG!
p.s. the doctor didn't actually measure his personality, but by my estimates, he's way past the 100th percentile for that one.
