Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Little CAHoot

At Pickle's check up today with the pediatric endocrinologist: At 13 years and 6 months, he is 106 pounds (the 48th percentile for weight) and at 61 inches, he is at the 25th percentile for height.

This is incredible. For the first 11 years of his life, he wasn't even on the growth chart!!!! Height or weight!!!

Last year, he was on the chart on the weight side when he gained a lot of weight over a summer ... but he is doing great now.

The doctor did a "bone age" x-ray to make sure that the CAH isn't causing him to grow too rapidly. With the results of the xray, we should know if he is growing just right for him and the doctor can give me a good guesstimate of his adult height.

Side note: I'm only 5'2, so it is just a matter of time now before I'm scolding him and wagging my finger while looking up!
