Sean - 5 year check up

I promise I'll post pictures from Sean's birthday soon... I have to share all the fun stuff from my FIVE YEAR OLD's party! In the meantime, let me tell you about his five year old check up...

Let me start by saying he is as healthy, and for that, we are truly grateful!!! His pediatrician was very pleased with his growth, although she does want us to continue to see Dr. Green (his pediatric endocrinologist). We only see her once a year, and won't see her again until April. Despite the fact that Sean had to get three immunizations, the visit was pretty uneventful! Here are the five year old stats:

Height: 39 1/2 inches (3.26 percentile)
Weight: 29.6 pounds (0.13 percentile)

Just for comparison, here were his stats from the last couple of years:

4 year stats
Height: 36 3/4 inches (1.51 percentile)
Weight: 26.6 pounds (0.16 percentile)

3 year stats
Height: 34 1/8 inches (0.96 percentile)
Weighed 25.2 pounds (1.54 percentile)

So, he's still not gaining a lot of weight (only three pounds in one year, yet a big improvement from his third year to fourth year), but he's grown almost three inches - IN ONE YEAR! WAHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! Although he hasn't grown much since April, he is growing. In regards to the weight, now that the weather is getting colder and we can't be outside as much, I'm sure he'll pack on a little "winter weight"... yeah, that's my excuse too. ;-)

Birthday pictures coming soon!!!!

Halloween 2011

This Halloween was SO much fun! We decided to meet up with my nephews, Nick and Kyle, again this year, and Trick-or-Treat in my parents neighborhood. It's nice that they can see the boys and that they can all be together.

Nathan really, really got into it (which was super cute) and just melted everyones heart when he would say "Happy Halloween" (or what sounded something like that) in that sweet little voice! Sean had a ball as well, but really didn't care too much about the candy... he just wanted to ring the doorbells!

"Handy Sean"

My sweet puppy (or lamb as everyone called him... ugh!)

Nathan making friends with the real puppy

I just loved how his little tail wagged when he would walk! SO cute!

Nathan was fascinated with this skull that would repeat back to you whatever you said. He kept yelling "BOO" at it, and saying "Happy Halloween". I thought it might freak him out a bit, considering how loud it was, but it didn't seem to bother him at all! I think he would have stayed at that house all night if we would have let him!

My nephew Kyle... aka, the red M-n-M!

ABC Halloween

It was kind of weird only having one kiddo with a Halloween parade this year, but it was still a ton of fun watching all the kids and their cute costumes! Grandma and Grandpa were even able to make it to see the debut of our sweet puppy!
