Henderson had his 2 year check up yesterday and he looks GREAT -
except for one thing.
The one thing we've been through the gammot and back with Wilson - he's TINY!!!!! He weighed 24 lbs, which was about 7th percentile, and I can't remember his height, but it was in the 20th percentile. Our doctor said he looks fantastic - he's reaching all his milestones ahead of time and is a very smart little boy. Our doctor has suggested we go through the plethora of tests that we did on Wilson - CBC (blood work), liver function, thyroid function, sweat test to check for Cystic Fibrosis, Celiac Disease Test, etc. In my heart and mind, I KNOW he's fine - he's happy, healthy, has no issues, but he's just TINY. If you've followed my blog for long, you know that we went through all this with Wilson - he was (and is) still very tiny (27 lbs at 3 1/2 years old), but Wilson has never been a good eater - NEVER - not even as a tiny baby. We searched and searched for a reason why he wouldn't eat and everything came back negative. So we just accepted that he takes after his mama and is very small. He has HUGE strides in the last year and actually eats like a normal 3 year old now, but is still VERY small.
Henderson on the other hand eats GREAT - his teacher at school often comments on how he eats all morning long. He eats good food and has no issues. So why is he still so little? Yes, I am very small, but their daddy is VERY tall - 6'4" (really closer to 6'5"). I joked with the doctor that it's about time daddy's genes start kicking in!!!!
Part of me just wants to hold onto the fact that I REALLY think he's just fine, but then there's the big "WHAT IF". What if there is something going on and I don't have him tested now? So, we will commence with putting Henderson through the rigors of drawing blood and sweat tests and whatever else is needed. And pray that God's Will be done, whatever plans he has for Henderson are perfect.
God is good.
