On the Charts!

This is amazing stuff.

On April 4th, we took Charlie to our pediatrician for the first time. He had shown decent weight gain, but he was still 'under' on the American charts in all areas.

I took him in today--just two weeks and two days later--to find that he's grown one full inch!!  He is on the charts for height in the 25th percentile!  I was surprised to find that he's gained only a 1/2 pound given the way he's been eating.  He's still 'under' on the weight charts, but something tells me he's going to make it on there by our next visit in a month.

It's amazing what love, nutrition, sunshine, and the power of Juice Plus can do for a body:-)

Charlie endured three shots today.  He was a trooper. He cried, but I'm not sure what disturbed him more--the shots, or the big bandage that they placed on one of his "sucking" fingers!  I tried to remove it before his nap, but he wouldn't let me. Good thing he has two hands...

I have to share this! It's so funny!! We took Ava to the Dr. 3 days after we got home from China and she was in the 4th percentile for weight. We went back a month later for shots and she was in the 10th percentile. We just took her last week and she was in the 75th!

Hooray for Charlie! Great job Murphys, he looks and sounds like he's doing amazingly well in your care! I couldn't be happier for all of you!

OMG, Charlie looks "all boy" in that picture. He is just to adorable. Hope, some day, we get to meet.

Your Charlie is just right - weight and height!!
God bless.
