15 Months

Will had is 15 month well baby visit yesterday. Dr. H was pleased with his development, but was a little concerned about his size. At 15 months he weighs 17.8lbs and is 26.5 inches tall. His height is below the 3rd percentile for a 9.5 month old and is the average length for a 6 month old. So he wants him to be seen by an endocrinologist. Dr. H doesn't feel that his height can be attributed to his prematurity any more. He does know that genetics is working against Will but feels that it can't hurt to get him checked out just to be sure. Will's appointment with the endocrinologist is on March 11.

If you are interested, there is a pretty neat chart on the CDC's website.
