3-year check up

Sean is officially not a baby anymore. No more well-baby visits... nope. The title at the top of my take home sheet from his visit reads, "Your three year old preschooler". Preschooler. WOW!

Anyway, he got a clean bill of health from the doc, so we are super pleased! Sean showed great improvement in the chart for height and weight. He's still a little peanut, but at least when you look at the chart there is a curve and not a flat line!! We still have to go to St. Louis to see the specialist at the Children's Hospital, but Dr. Striegel was VERY happy with his progress!!

Here are the stats:

November 2009
Height: 34 1/8 inches (0.96 percentile)
Weight: 25.2 pounds (1.54 percentile)

When you look at the percentiles, they don't look that great. But here is a comparison:

November 2008
Height: 30 5/8 inches (not on chart)
Weight: 19.1 pounds (0.01 percentile)

March 2009
Height: 31 inches (not on chart)
Weight: 22.2 pounds(0.42 percentile)

Remember, he had his tonsils and adenoids out in late March. There has been a significant improvement since then (plus he TALKS now, eats better/more and sleeps through the night!!!)
