Dr’s appointment at 9:30. We get to see the boy’s normal ped, which makes me very happy. I’ll let you all know how it goes.
Lauri posted this nifty little site this morning and I thought I’d take a look. I’m always curious about how tall the boy will be when he grows up. Will he be a Chris Pronger or Darren Pang. Yes. It does always come down to Hockey.
So I did some calculating on the site Lauri posted and if you take the boy’s measurements from January he will be a Darren Pang. Short. 5’5″ to be more specific. That isn’t much taller than me. However, this calculator does not take into account his institutionalized stunted growth. At 23 months old the 15 month old Chickadee out weighed him. She still does. My girlfriend’s son is just about the same height and he is 18 months old. My boy is small. At 30 months my child barely fits into a 24 month sized clothing. He is a skinny minnie all around. He is growing so don’t start thinking he has failure to thrive and all. He goes through random growth spurts. However he has a long way to go to catch up to his age group. His regular check-up is next week so we’ll get a better feel for how things are going and if he is even on the chart for weight yet. Thus far he hasn’t even gotten to that point.
*The diagnosis is Croup. Thank you internets for pointing this out to me like 3 days ago. No antibiotics yet. Fever is gone and as always it hasn’t slowed him down one bit.
