Ollie's 3 year stats

Back to the doctor today. This was for Ollie's 3 year check up. I know that his birthday was 2 months ago, but apparently when you call around the actual birthday to make an appointment, the best they can do is 2 months later. (When the kids are sick are there are shots that need to be given by a certain time they get in really quickly, though.)

Ollie is 41 inches tall- 3 ' 5"- 97% on the growth chart
weighs 47 pounds- yes, that's right- greater than 99%- which is a nicer way to say, "off the chart"
And the doctor said he is the size of an average 5 year old.

I think he's right on track since last year Dr. Patz told us he was the size of an average 4 year old.

Here is my big man at his end of the year soccer party. He was so proud of his trophy!

And little Henry went with us today since he's been waking up from nap screaming the past couple of days. I don't know what his deal is, but I was secretly hoping it was an ear infection so that it would be something. You know what I mean? Thankfully, I guess, it was nothing. I think this is about the 5th time in his short life that I've paid my $25 co-pay to have him checked for an ear infection. Ollie had several that we didn't know about and caused hearing issues and speech delays, so I'm a little gun-shy. Better safe than sorry, I guess. Apparently he has a molar coming in that causing him some pain, so that's probably the reason.

Here's my little man with his first taste of cotton candy this Saturday.
I'm off to sunny Orlando for a few days. I've got to attend/ speak at a conference there and unfortunately won't get out of the hotel, most likely. Hopefully I'll be able to update the bloggy blog, but if not, I'll be sure to post some pictures of mis-matched children and pizza for dinner from my absence. Just kidding, Jas. You are a wonderful daddy. I'm sure there will nothing but organic salads and home made soups eaten here while I'm gone...

We were there today, too, but on the sick side!! Melody weighs 52 lbs, so Owen could probably body-slam her with no problem. :) Glad he is healthy and growing!! (and very cute!)

Hey. I love the picture of you and Harris. You seriously haven't changed a bit since high school. I love your pretty!

Hillary, have you noticed that people see Owen's size and assume he actually IS an actual 5yr old and expect him to act that way? Perhaps Owen is so precocious that he also is emotionally mature for his age? A friend's son was always big for his age, and maybe judged too harshly bc of it. Hope everyone is always gracious with Owen - especially you :)
