cellulite on four year old

My dd will be five in November...lately I've been noticing that she has cellulite on her legs. I swear she had cellulite on her bum when she was born Click here to enlarge Is that "normal?" She is active in a boucing-off-the-walls-I'm-four-look-at-this-new-dance-move kind of way, and we also do a family yoga dvd together about three times a week. She is 43 inches tall and 43 pounds. Her ped says her bmi is in the normal range, etc. etc. etc.

Am I projecting Click here to enlarge I don't say anything negative to her about her body, and it's not like her dimply thighs consume my thoughts, I just wonder if she needs to be more active?

SHe's only 4. She still has baby fat, which she could possibly retain until her teens.

I would stop obsessing over it, for sure.

My 9 month old has cellulite and she is only in the 25th percentile for weight. She carries all of her fat in her thighs. (just like her mamma, thin everywhere with big thighs)
