I took both boys for their annual checkup yesterday and got confirmation that I have two strong, healthy, growing boys! Boys who unknowingly dressed like twinkies yesterday! 🙂
Maxwell is 50 inches tall (75th %) and 52.4 lbs (75th %). He’s a steadily growing! He’s always been right in that 50th – 75th % range but Dr. Walley said with this last growth spurt he’s pushed squarely into the 75th % range which is great! Hopefully he’ll continue on that trajectory. He grew 2.75 inches since last year and gained 5.4 lbs lbs. Good stuff!
Spencer is 46 inches tall and weighs 49.4 lbs (both 75th to 95th %). Again, he’s always been in that % and is growing just as he should! Since last year he has has grown 2.75 inches and gained just over 5.8 lbs. Strong and steady!
For comparison, Maxwell at 6 was 45 and 1/4 inches tall (50-74th%) and 40.4 lbs (50th%). They could not be more different! 🙂
It was an easy visit with only a flu shot. We’re going to try and start weaning Spencer off of his Singulair and inhaler once winter hits. I would love for him not have to take daily meds.
And, because I like to do things like this, here are their yearly photos with Dr. Walley!

Always thankful for good doctor reports and healthy, growing kids!
