My Tiny Children

Yesterday I took three of my four children to the doctor for their well check-ups. Everyone is fine, they are just tiny! I already knew that, but it’s still good to know exactly how tiny, I guess.

Taylor went first and she is 43.75″ tall and 43 lbs (I know pretty soon I can’t tell people her weight, so I have to do it while I still can!). That puts her in the 25th percentile. I think it’s funny that she has a pound for every inch. Dr. J said she might actually be a little taller than me someday! While we were there, Taylor told her that her favorite school subject is Science and that she loves Soccer.

Kameron was next and the poor boy is not even on any of the charts – 100% of 3 year olds are heavier and taller than him. He was 26 lbs and 35.25″ tall. And, he doesn’t look skinny, but those measurements make him seem like he is a stick! He spent most of the visit ordering me around which Dr. J got a kick out of. At least she could understand him though and she eased my fears about his speech developement.

Little Kyler was last and he is now 6 months old. At 6 months he:

-weighs 14 lbs 4 ounces
-is 24″ tall
-is in the 5th percentile. So he’s bigger than Kameron, but still a teeny boy. :)
-rolls over well both ways and loves to show you how.
-sucks his thumb when he is hungry or tired.
-loves watching his brothers and sister and looks for them when they aren’t near, but he can hear them.
-still nursing exclusively. We have waited to start solids because he just hasn’t seemed interested and he is doing fine otherwise.
-still sleeping 9-10 hours a night, most nights. I can’t tell you how fabulous this is for Mommy!
-starting to scrunch his legs up underneath him when he’s playing, like he wants to crawl, but so far going nowhere.
-is the sweetest, cutest, baby ever!
