4 Year Checkup

(S) had her 4 year checkup today and I am happy to report she is doing great. When she first came to us and we took her for a medical check the Doctor classified her as a "failure to thrive" because she was so small and thin that she wasn't even on the charts. She was also very pale and her cheeks were sunken in a little bit. It really wasn't pretty for a 2 year old.

Now at her 4 year check, I am happy to report that not only is she on the chart, but she is up to the 25th percentile. Certainly not a large child, but considering where she was, the doctor is very happy with the way she looks and the progress she has made

On a seperate note, we saw Bio-dads name in the court news yesterday. There were 13 different charges against him. I still can't figure out why he isn't in prison. I really need someone to explain this justice system to me. Every day you hear about people who spent years in prison and were exonerated because of new DNA evidence, but this loser has only spen a few weeks in jail.


  1. Congratulations!

    I know I don't understand it either! Most of the kids' cases I heard of, the parents had horrific criminal records, and they still weren't in jail.
    I don't understand and it is so scary to think they are out there free to do it again.

  2. never understood or will I ever understand the courts!!

    YAY that you have dont such a GREAT JOB!
