Today, in my fitting and alteration class, I learned who Maddie got her large head from. Although Maddie is generally below the first percentile in height and weight, her head is always in the 60th to 70th percentile. In class today we had to measure the height of our body by the height of our head. The average person should be able to fit their head height 8 times into their body height. I can fit mine 6 1/2. Another girl had the same size head as me but she was at least 5'10". What can I say? I have a big head.
