Audrey's Three Year Update

I am not sure whether calculating out a three year old's BMI is funny or sad. Funny in that Audrey is in the 26 percentile for her weight, and her BMI was low. Sad that there are probably those kids out there that have BMI's that are too high.

Her height is on target with her weight at 38%. The pediatrician estimates she will be between 5'3" and 5'4". Which is shorter than me and shorter than Ashley's amazon-woman estimate. So she takes after my Mom and Ray's Dad (sorry Allen, but you are short).

The other big thing of the day was her asthma issues. She has been on steriods for asthmatic "episodes" three times in the past three months, and that isn't something her pediatrician wanted to see. We have changed some of her drugs and will follow up in a month and then in two months. We are also now involved in an asthma study Audrey's pediatrician's office is conducting. They are very proactive with asthma patients and their office has an asthma clinic. The head doctor and nurse decided that there wasn't enough information out there on kids with asthma under the age of four. So we get to answer some questions and hopefully help them out (and get paid, wahoo!).

So is she a normal three year old? You tell me....

Can we set up an arranged marriage? She is so adorable and I think she and Joshie should get married :)

I hope the asthma study goes well and produces good results!

She is just too cute! Alyssa has gotten somewhat bigger, 39th for her weight. Um, height? Not so much. 5th. I estimated her on babycenter and they predict her height to be 4'9". I really hope they are wrong!

Ha! That was so cute. I love that her little feet never leave the floor.

I hope all goes well with her asthma study.

My boy was always high in the weight percentile...he tended to grow out before he grew up. His pants would still fit in the waist, but they'd be too short!
