After giving the kids a bath tonight I was in the process of drying Evan off and noticed how big his hands and feet were! I felt like I was seeing him for the first time in months. I mean, I help dress the kid and put his shoes on all the time, but tonight his feet looked like they has grown three sizes. I was instantly saddened. When I informed Evan that his feet (and hands too) looked like big boy feet (and hands) he thought that was funny! He proceeded to inform me that this growth must have been due to the fact that he has been burping and farting a lot lately....and (pause).....sentimental moment over. Funny! I then informed him that I didn't think those things necessarily made him bigger, but that his mentality was more of an "adult male."
I should not be suprised about how big his feet look though. He is weighing in at 43 pounds and measures 45 inches tall. That puts him in the 5oth percentile for weight and 90th for height for his age. At least that is what the growth charts show. Personally that makes him 1/2 my weight and over 1/2 my height......HELP! He is only 5 yrs old!
