5 year check-ups

Yep. Both boys had 5 year check-ups today. Never mind the fact that Logan's been five for nearly 3 months and Ryan won't be five for "two more sleeps!"

The stats:

Logan is 43 5/8" tall and weighs 40.4 pounds. He's grown a TON in the last year...something like 4" and almost 6 pounds. He's just about exactly average, hanging out at the 60th percentile for height and the 50th for weight. And then there's Ryan.

Still tiny, but growing! We were excited to see that he's finally made it OFF the 3rd percentile line; as a matter of fact, he's moved up the charts quite some. He's 41 1/4" tall and weighs 34 pounds. That puts him in the 25th percentile for height (up from the 7th last year) and the 10th percentile for weight (up from under the 3rd last January) so we're making progress.

Nothing else noteworthy, and the boys are in good health. We're going to do a follow up ultrasound of their kidneys to check on their hydronephrosis from last January. (I looked back to put in a link to the blog post and discovered that I didn't write one! Sorry...) Shouldn't be a big deal. If the hydronephrosis is still present, we'll reevaluate next year when they're 6 since they are both asymptomatic now. If they become symptomatic, we'll take the next step. If there's nothing visible on the u/s we can close this chapter forever! Times like this I am grateful for a knowledgeable pediatrician who has a very balanced approach. We had fun seeing him today and will be quite content to not see him again until next January! It might even happen--I think the boys have only been in once since last January.

Got something on my mind for another blog post soon...when I have time to complete some thoughts! Maybe sometime this week--the girls have 1st semester finals and are on half days this week. Means I won't be the only big person in the house, which helps.
