Sounds like he is doing well and that's great he gained some weight and got a bit taller and I never pay much attention to thecharts so long as he is healthy that's all that matters and he will make a great linebacker lol
I'm just thankful the Ped is just looking at him being small due to genetic verses something is wrong. His height concern was the reason why we did the sweat test at 18 months. I remember when he was tiny in both weight and height, height was more of an issue because it looked like he didn't grow. So I'm thankful he is finally normal and has been growing in the 5th percentile curve a while now. I do think it can change as he get older..

Thank you.. He is fearless.. Going to be fun working at this.. He goes for the knee's.. lol
I agree with you on as long as they are healthy, that's all that matters.. A friend of mine told me how she understood the charts.. Her boys where always on the high end for height, 95th.. Her doctor asked her son if anyone in his class was taller then him, he said no.. He said, because only 5% of the kids his age was taller then him.. Hence why he was always the tallest.. My friend then told me, since A.J is 5th, that means 95% of boys his age is taller then him. That's why it's noticeable smaller.. It makes sense to me know verses 50th is normal,etc..
^^I love when people actually know the meaning of the charts. It seems that not many people know what they actually mean. They panic about a 5th percentile...even when the child is steadily growing on that line.
But your doc sounds awesome and like he made sure everything was fine with AJ and now just will sit back and watch for a while. You never know, he could hit a big growth spurt next year! Or he could just be genetically small
