On July 5, 2011, Katya's first visit to a Doctor in the USA, her vital statistics were as follows: Height--46 inches Weight--34.4 lbs. BMI--12.76 For her height, she was at 40% on the growth chart, but LESS than 5% on her weight. On June 19, nearly two years later, Katya had a physical today, in preparation for a dental procedure next week on Monday, God willing. Height--50 inches Weight--46.8 lbs BMI--13.2 I was not given info on the growth and weight chart today, so I don't know exactly where she falls on all that. Would be interesting to find out. As the Dr. said today, "She's getting nice weight--for HER." In other words, she needs to put on more, but given where she was at versus where she is now, we have come a long, long way. Katya is thoroughly enjoying her summer vacation! Respite is going well--she is eager to go every week and jumps out of the van eager to go play. The regular respite is helping our family function much better than last summer when we only had respite 3 times the whole summer for brief periods of time. Katya is getting nicely tanned (as "brown as a berry") and her hair is loaded with beautiful blond summer-sun highlights. ;-) She's growing, learning, loving. Our Sweet Katya.
