Our Tiny Little Man

Today I received measurements for L. At 7 years old (I don't know when his birthday is, so he could be almost 8 for all I know.) He is 40.6 inches tall (about the 20% on the DS growth chart) 31.9 lbs (not on the DS growth chart) and wears a size 8 toddler shoe.

Tiny, tiny little man. Because his height an weight are disproportionate, it's clear he's underweight.

Angela was never on the growth charts until she was 9. Thats when she shot up. Now at 15 1/2  years and 4'8" she is just under the 50% for height and the 25% for weight.

Axel when we got him a year ago was not on the growth charts at all. Now at 11 years is 49" which is just under the 25%. His weight of 59 lbs puts him at about the 23%.

So....tiny I'm used to! LOL It will be interesting to see how L shoots up once we get him home.


  1. Wow, a tiny bundle of body to LOVE!! :) Great that you finally got measurements!!!

  2. I just read this and laughed out loud. Literally. My Serbian princess is six and half and at her checkup on Monday she weighed the exact same thing as Axel. 59lbs. Her height? 53"!! I am parenting an amazon.
