You feed and water them and look what happens!

We've started to notice Acer's ankles peeking out under his pants lately and wondered why as I haven't had a mad shrinking fit with the washer, and we'd just bought him new pants for school in the fall.

Well it seems he's grown an inch and a half in the last six months!

This explains how he was able to gain three pounds and still look as slim as ever. I was actually worried because, going on weight alone (he's very muscular) Acer's weight and old height put him in the obese category for BMI calcualtions. Now that we know he's 39.5 inches, and 37 pounds, he's in the 80% category which makes me much happier.

Now I just have to find longer size threes or size 4's made for boys with no butte!

Yay for Acer getting taller!! I worry when they grow too!! Funny huh? Presley has always been in the 95th percentile for her height. When she came home she was in 50th for her weight. Last time she was in the 75th. I weighed her on our home scale (which has always been the same as the doctor's) and now she is in the 90th percentile!! Time to schedule her meals and snacks and possibly put a lock on the pantry!! Good luck finding some more pants!!

I feel your pain! LM grew another inch, too! Now her 2T pants are way too short, but 3T's fall off her waist. I told her I was going to have to buy her some suspenders!! LOL

Way to Go, Acer!!

They grow so fast. If you use size 4s and not 4t you should be able to buy pants that have the adjustable waist. I need those too with Liam and Sarah.
