My Speedy Gonzales
The only other point of interest is his height. I know I've blogged before about Noah being a little on the small side. Of course, of course we love him just the way he is, and we never expected to have a giant guy, but it seems his growth curve has been sloping down little by little and today it was below the chart. Our pediatrician wants to see him in six months. Most likely it is just genetic, which is what I'm pretty sure it is. If he doesn't get back on the chart, she would like Noah to see an endocrinologist, but frankly, I think, it's just that we are short people! It could be his nutrition, but she doesn't think it is because he is in the 30th% for weight. Not too worried, just need to have him eat more foods and more nutritious things.
Bottom line, good appointment and he may be small but he sure is a "SPEEDY GONZALES"! Being shorter than your peers has advantages, you should see how fast this kid can weave in and out of his classmates. He's fast!
