Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

I was just all tuckered out tonight!  I missed my nap because I had an appointment at the dysphagia clinic today.  Mommy looks forward to these appointments because it is an opportunity to get accurate height and weight measurements and discuss my growth.  My parents and grandparents have all been saying that it seems like I have gotten bigger and they were right!  I weighed in at 28 lbs. 7 ozs. and I am 37 1/2 inches tall.  In the grand scheme of things I am still pretty small - only about the 7th percentile for girls my age - but I am keeping right on my growth curve so everyone was happy.  Dr O'Gorman recalled the first time she saw me about a year ago and I was super skinny and now she is pleased to see that I am filling out - so it is not just my family's imagination.  To try to keep up with my activity level I need to have my day feeds bumped up 10 cc's but no big changes to my care plan which is good.

Because I am on the petite side, my Mommy wondered how long before I would meet the 40 lb requirement to move to a booster seat in the car.  My dietician, Marie, checked against my growth curve and it looks like somewhere around 6-7 years of age.  Until then I am stuck with a car seat!

As a special treat, Mommy and I stopped by the Halloween store on our way home today.  Although I am dead set on wearing Jackson's elephant costume from last year, I still wanted to go look at costumes.  I had a lot of fun roaming the aisles and I am convinced Halloween is just days away, with Christmas close on it's heels!
