Nothing to Worry About

A couple of months ago I wrote about BooBoo's size being a concern for her pediatrician and on a smaller scale, me. She was a 9lb 4oz, 20 3/4in newborn who gradually became more petite finally settling into her current size of a 32lb, 37 1/4in 4 year old. She has been around the 5th-10th percentile for the past two years and the only reason the pediatrician was concerned was because BooBoo leveled off at age 2. So, we were scheduled an appointment with an Endocrinologist to evaluate BooBoo and see if there really was any room for concern.

Monday was our appointment and it went way better than I had imagined. We went over the general family medical history with the nurse and then met with the doctor. He asked me if I know the reason we were meeting and I said yes. Then he asked if I was worried about BooBoo's size. I told him that I was not too concerned because my family is on the shorter side and my brother is two years behind in his growth but that the pediatrician made it seem a lot worse. He gave Booboo the once over and then let me know where he stood on the debate about her size. He said he is not concerned about her size because even though she is at the bottom of the percentile, she is growing consistently. He said he would be more concerned if she had been at the 95th percentile and dropped to the 50th within the last year. He scheduled a follow-up for 6 months from now just to make sure she's still growing well. She is just going to be a late bloomer =)

What a week it's been for Bug!

Bug is finally crawling!!!! She officially started on Wednesday at 10 months and 4 days old. BooBoo and I were both in shock when we first saw her do it. It was one of those "Did she really just do that?" moments. Three days later she is an old pro at the whole thing. I swear it's like she's been crawling for months. I've had to go babygate crazy in the apartment because she just moves so fast! She's also decided that since she can crawl, why not start to pull up and stand as well? She can only make it up on her knees and sometimes a little farther but she has not stood up yet. She is getting better at standing on her own when we hold her. She can stand for a few seconds by herself when we let go. Could she be walking before she turns 1 in August? Only time will tell but you can bet that I'll be posting her crawling pictures soon!!

J Found a New Job

As I mentioned in my last post, J has found a new job! He was only out of work for two weeks. I am not counting the part-time job that was the reason for conflict with his previous company because he quit there when he started the current job. He is now a full-time Manager-in-Training for Enterprise rent-a-car. He really likes his job because it's sales and my husband is a natural salesman. The only downside to this new job is that it is an hour and a half away from where we live so we have been apartment hunting. We want to be moved out of our current place and into something closer by the end of June. It sucks having our lives pretty much on hold for right now. We wanted to put BooBoo in soccer about two months ago but since everything has been crazy she had to miss out =( We want her in preschool next year to make friends and meet children in the area before we decide our homeschooling route. But we cannot enroll her since we are moving. I have my fingers crossed that everything works out and we have some sort of direction next month. Until then I am just going to pack and enjoy everything =)

Yes, We're still alive!

Hello Wonderful Readers,

I know it has been almost a month since my last post but life has been crazy. It's bedtime now and I have had a looooong day so I just wanted to give you a quick update and I'll be posting longer posts in the coming days. J's job search went really well! In less than two weeks out of work he managed to find a manager in training position. The only problem is that his job is now an hour and a half away so we will be moving at the end of June. We've been frantically scouring for a place to live and it looks as though we will be moving into an apartment complex. We are looking at ones that have washer/dryer connections in the apartments since we do cloth diaper Bug. This does remove some nicer apartments from our search but we have three to look at this week so fingers crossed! Well, J and BooBoo are telling me it's time for bed so I will be back tomorrow with an update on how Bug and BooBoo are doing!!!
