Ellie Bellie Boo Boo

She's growing up. That's right, blog readers. She's growing up and there's nothing we can do about it. Me no likey. Me no likey at all.

I took her to the pediatrician's office the other day for her 7 year check up. She was 50# which is the 50% for her age and 4'1" which is the 70%. Translation is she's a little tall for her age at an average weight. Not quite sure how she has ended up on the tall side of the chart but if you ask Aron he'll tell you all about how he used to be tall, too.

While there, Ella also happened to have a cough and a bit of a cold. Whenever she gets a cough and cold, she wheezes when she breathes. The doctor had previously prescribed a Pro-Air albuterol inhaler to use as needed. For this visit, Dr. B listened a bit more to her lungs and decided to diagnose her with a mild, intermittent asthma based on what she heard and my description of her symptoms. Her right lung tends to wheeze more than the left.

Other than the breathing issue, Dr B said Ella looked wonderful. She asked about her development and her school. I told her she was doing great and is even the best reader in her class. Her artwork was also featured in a local art gallery along with 10 or so other kids from her school. She's doing so well and we couldn't be more proud of her.
