Officially growing

Today was the Kiddo's Endo appointment. I was (as usual) about a quarter inch off with my at home measurements, that's because I always forget and have him stand to measure first thing in the morning...
So what's the magic number for this month? 1 3/4 inches!! And one pound heavier.

To give reference that lowest sticker was his height on his birthday in February, he did not grow between then and the start of his growth hormone shots at the end of April. The second white sticker was his last doc appt in July, after about three months of growth hormone. The last one is today, three months after that.

He's doing a pretty steady growth pattern, and has grown a total of 3 1/4 inches since we started. He says he's going to grow to be as tall as Uncle P, and that when he gets that tall he'll be able to drive his "yellow bumblebee car"... it's good to have goals *chuckle*

The other day I read in a children's newspaper about the "world's tallest baby." He's two years old, from India, and 135 centimeters tall. That'd be...53 inches, or 4' 5".

Er...I suppose that's not TERRIBLY relevant, but your post reminded me of it. I wanted to compare the numbers with Chance's (the boys here are like 115 centimeters I think at five, six, and seven years old), but you only listed his growth, not his height... what's the chart say: 3' 5"?
