A few days after her birthday we visited Eleanor’s pediatrician for her 3-year check-up.
It turns out she’s the same height as she was at her 2-year check-up 37.5 inches! I think they over-measured her last year. At that time they were still measuring her lying down like they do for babies, and now they measured her standing up. So, I think that she probably has grown and they just measured her wrong last year. And she is 27 pounds! That’s only 3 pounds up from last year!
This puts her in the 52nd percentile for her height (she’s finally average, rather than giantly tall, for her age) and only 13th percentile for her weight. She’s such a skinny little one! Her pediatrician says that her skinniness is nothing to be concerned about. Josh and I were both very thin as kids. And he says he sees so many overweight kids that he’d much prefer to see a thin one.
He says she is looking fantastic and her language and cognitive skills seem to be excellent for her age! And the best news of all: she didn’t need any shots! Whoo hoo! No shots for her, no cranky kid for me! Great day!
