Mr Slightly Less Than Average

Luke had his 5 year check up last week with our fave pediatrician. She didn't really tell us anything we didn't already know-he's slightly less than average for height and weight at
42 3/4" (43%) and 40# (42%), respectively. At those percentiles, he very likely be the same size as Aron as a grown up (weird to think about, huh?). He is definitely ready for kindergarten next year and the doctor was impressed with the content level and complexity of his sentences (read into that that he has a lot to tell you and a lot of words to use while telling it--who didn't already know that?!?!). He did not enjoy his kindergarten shots (surprise!!) but was such a tough, big boy about it that we went and got a frosty at Wendy's.

Also, last night we went to a parent teacher conference for Luke. His teacher, Mrs. Lori, had nothing but nice things to say about him: He's wonderful, he's ready for kindergarten, he's well behaved, he's kind to the other kids, blah, blah, blah. I finally had to ask her to stop gushing on and on about him because I was starting to blush.

I think he's a keeper.
