Ian had his 5 year old check up today. FIVE? Really? Five already? If you remember, when he was 4 he asked me if he'd be a grown up when he turned 5. But, five is one of those pivotal years...it's a big deal.
Today, he saw Dr. Sood and told me that he was very brave at the doctor's office and didn't cry a single time :) Dr. Sood says he's doing great. We may have a little vision problem, but nothing we can't fix. But, who knows at this age. Sometimes little 5 year olds who think they're grown up decide not to tell you if they can see the shape and what it is. We'll have him checked out further just to be sure all is well.
Vital statistics of our little man....at 5 years old.....he weighs 36 pounds (45th percentile on the US charts) and 41 inches tall (25th percentile on the US growth charts). He looks so big to us...but when he's around other kids his age...he looks a little small. We think Drew is going to be bigger than Ian...or at least that's what it's looking like. That will not go over so well with Ian. He, like all 5 year olds, thinks bigger is better.
