5 year old appointment

I just got Aidan in for his 5 year old appointment yesterday due to insurance reasons. Since I am using this as  his "baby book" I am going to post how his appointment went here. He is now 46 inches tall and weighed in at 41 lbs, He was in the 95% for height and 50% for weight. At least he is consistent. He has been in these precentiles since he was born.  To sum it up- we are going to have one tall and skinny boy! I just can't get the kid to gain weight. He eats lots of fruit and veggies, so I am not going to worry. We are going to follow up with an orthopedist for his toe walking and his doctor also wants another Physical Therapy evaluation. I am supposed to talk to his dentist about his thumb sucking and how it is affecting his speech ( creating "tongue thrusting"). There is a retainer type device the dentist can give him to prevent the thumb from going into his mouth. The doctor said her daughter sucked her thumb until she was 7 and this is what finally solved the problem. Overall, he is one healthy boy and doing well! He had to get shots yesterday and for the first time was having a lot of anxiety about it before the appointment. He did great. He cried for a few minutes and then was sooo happy he was done (mama too!).

Today he starts AWANAS at our church. The kids play games, sing songs, and learn bible verses. He is very excited. He has still been very tired after school, so I hope it is not to much for him. He does an after school sports program and is still taking swimming. A full week for this 5 year old.

I think he needs a flu shot.
