The Dr. Says.........

Aiden is growing. It's a problem I know. They're supposed to stay little, right??? At least for awhile??? He had his 3 year check up today. He was at 33 pounds and 39 1/2 inches. The Dr. said he was in the 90% for height and 70% for weight. Wow, he really IS growing fast.


Yesterday we realized it was Drew's 1/2 birthday. Only 6 months till he hits the double digits. He said we hadn't measured him on his growth chart for awhile and I realized he was right. So he dashed into his bedroom to be measured. He was off the charts. I mean that literally......he was taller than his growth chart!!! When did THAT happen?? I guess it's time to roll up the Classic Pooh growth chart that has hung in his room since he was born and tuck it away in his keepsake box. *sigh*


In two weeks, Noah will have his 7 year check up. I have a funny feeling the Dr. will tell me HE'S growing too.

You are telling the wrong person...as I look at my 35, 30 and 23 year old children and see them as toddlers.....

You just reminded me to make a checkup appt. for Ty:)

Way to grow Aiden! I know it's bittersweet but let's just be thankful they're healthy & able to grow so well.

Oh man, this is what ticks me off. I keep telling my kids, and telling my kids to stop growing and they just don't listen.

Amen, Beth! So thankful for healthy children! It is sometimes hard to see them growing up so quickly...but no matter how old or big they get they are always going to be our babies!

Wow....I knew you had tall children from their pictures. :) My Alex and Zac are little but my Ethan seems to be pretty tall. Zac - my 3 year old is only 24 pounds and 35 inches tall!

Maybe we can get together NEXT time I come up. I'll try to get over there on a weekend next time. :) Enjoy your visit with your family.
