The doctor said that Colson is consistent on the growth charts and that is what matters.
They did weigh him fully dressed--wearing jeans--so I think the weight is a bit generous. :oP But I was pleased that he actually broke the 10th percentile in something. He hasn't done that since, well, I can't even remember.
They were impressed with his speaking and that he was potty trained.
They also said he is doing well with his colors and letters.
He knows the main colors and most of the alphabet. He even knows most of the sounds that the letters make. He can count to 10 but has a hard time pointing out the correct numbers to us. He does know his shapes and can draw a circle. We are currently working on how to hold a pencil. I also want him to start practicing writing letters, if I can.
They did however, tell us that he has an innocent heart murmur also known as a "physiologic" murmur. The told us to not worry and that it will go away, but as a mother, you always worry about medical things. But everything I have read is very reassuring so I am 'trying' to not think about it too much.
So, Colson is a normal 3 year old...he is just one of the smallest 3 year olds. But hey, we got tons of use out of 18 month clothes and most 24 month and 2t stuff is finally fitting him nicely. :o)
We love our little peanut!
