I'm not sure who would appreciate this more than all of you.
My son who is 6 1/2 had is annual check up today.
He was 100th percentile for height and 75th percentile for weight!
This is a boy born at 31 weeks due to HELLP. He weighed 3lbs 5oz and spent 6 weeks in the NICU. He had a great Kindergarten year and still has some speech delays but otherwise healthy and happy!

Erin (34)
Jack 03 born at 31 weeks due to HELLP
Faith 05 born at 38 weeks (low platelets)
Audrey 07 born at 37 weeks (low platelets)

That is awesome. Isn't it amazing how our little preemies catch up? Did you EVER expect a doctor to say that your child was in the 100th percentile? That is wonderful!
