I am probably not the best parent sometimes
I just never really looked closely at Lucas's growth records in his Chinese documents
Today, as we are approaching 1 year with him home, I started digging for info and think I found it.
Our sweet boy was so tiny.
He still is at 8 years old and just hitting 45 lbs.
Here is what I found
Age Weight Height
5days 5.3 lbs 17.7"
3 mo. 8.8 lbs 21.3"
6 mo 13.2 lbs 23.6"
9 mo 15.4 lbs 24.8"
12 mo. 15.4 lbs 25.2"
18 mo 16.5 lbs 25.6"
24 mo 17.6 lbs 27.2"
30 mo 19.8 lbs 27.6"
I would suspect the height to not change much and be affected. And I suppose it lines up with missing bones in your legs that you would not grow in weight also, but zowie....from 9-18 months he gained just ONE pound and from 18 months to 2 years just one pound. And little boopski was only 5 lbs at 5 days old....oh do I wish I could have been holding him and feeding him and nourishing him during those formative days.
at 7 years old when we got him last year he was 40" and 40lbs.
Today he is 45 lbs and 42 1/2"
and that is AFTER his surgery which removed his feet 6 months ago (I don't think he lost much height at that time since they kept the heel pad, but maybe a little bit)
Thanking Jesus for growth and development today!!!
