Molly had a triumphant visit to the doctor yesterday. Surprisingly, all her measurements fell into the 25% or better range--25 inches long, 13.9 lbs. She wasn't even on the charts before, meaning her size was way below normal and cause for concern. But, as Dr. Raine said, "She's experienced a great deal of catch-up growth." The nurse measured Molly's head four times to confirm the growth because the change was so significant. Additionally, the doctor was impressed with her head control and trunk stability, which I suppose means her ability to hold herself stable.
I knew she was growing quickly, but this visit surpassed our most positive outlook for her. Grow, Molly, grow!Posted by tat at August 27, 2004 06:29 PM
