Logan's 30 Month Check-Up

Today, Logan went to Dr. B for his 30 month check. We discussed his sleep/energy issues and his umbilical hernia. I really was hoping for a sleep study now, but he convinced me to wait til 36 months to see if he will continue to grow out of his suspected apnea. He thinks it is getting better not worse and that we may see it continue to get better. But, he said he would go ahead with it at 36 months if I still was concerned. I guess I am ok with that.
As far as his hernia, it seems that his intestines are still poking out a bit and he said that he will have a surgeon look at it when Logan is 4 yrs old. He suspects that it may need to be fixed at that point.
Here are his stats, I was a little disappointed about his height. He grew less than an inch over the last 6 months and is about to fall off the chart. On one hand, it is so fun that he is such a little guy yet. I can still pick him up and it's like he is taking his time growing up....I don't mind that. But, on the other hand it is sad to see him next to kids his age. He is the size of most 18 month olds.

Height: 33 inches (1%) (75% on the DS chart!)
Weight: 28.5 pounds (27%) (95% on the DS chart!)

Logan also showed off a little at his appointment. He showed the doctor how he is trying to jump and he used a couple of words. Of course, his doctor is very proud of him and how much he changes each him he sees him.

Yeah that whole growing thing is frustrating. Ella grew 1 1/4 inch in a year, between 2 and 3. She is now 38 months old and is 33 1/4 inches tall and 30lbs.

I didn't realize that sleep apnea can improve with age - it makes sense though. I'm kind of glad now that I am waiting until Joel is 36 months old to ask!

I think it's so great that Logan was showing off for the doctor! You must be so proud of him!
