5 year well check......3 months late

My Tyson had his 5 year old well visit today. It's a little late, I'm actually not too sure why it wasn't earlier.

Thought in honor of my Buddy, I would give a few Tyson stats:

~at birth he weighed 8 lbs 8 oz and was 21.5 " long

~at 12 mos he was 24 lbs 6 oz and was 31.25" long, that's a lot of growing in 1 year

~when he was 2 he weighed in at 29 lbs 8 oz and was 35.75" tall
he could tell you the sound most animals made and knew his primary colors and count to 5

~at 3 he was weighing 33 lbs 6 0z and 38.5" tall
he could spell his name and new all of his shapes, he also knew some of his letters, count to 10 on most days

~last year at 4 he was 37 lbs 4 oz and 40.75'' tall
he could write his first and last name, could recognize all of his letters and knew most of the sounds they made

*****drum roll please********today at 5 he is a whopping......

50 lbs and 45" tall........he grew almost 5 inches in 1 year!!!!

It's not a wonder that none of last years clothes fit.
And he will be glad to tell you his address, count as high as you will let him, and he is learning to read short words. We've worked hard all summer long on sounding out words as well as writing, and I think our hard work has paid off. My Buddy is ready to start kinder in less than 2 weeks.


  1. You forgot to mention how handsome and sweet he is!!!
