When you were born, the doctor recorded how much you weighed and how tall you were. Your statistics may have looked something like "8lbs 4oz and 21 inches long." Over the next few years, you grew and gained weight at a quick pace. You learned to sit up, roll over, stand, walk, and communicate in complete sentences. You continued to grow and develop into the person that you are today. Naturally, you can do many more things today than you could as a baby, things like cooking your own dinner and thinking logically through a situation.
