Project 366 #24

a few months back we found a measuring stick down the beach, one of these designed to fit on a wall and measure tide heights, so I measure the kids against it periodically, so as a matter of record here is Bob.
This starts 3 inches up so need to knock 3 inches off their height for a true measurement.

Taking the hair away he measures in at 35 inches, which at 5 years and 9 months is less than the 41 inches he should be according to height development charts, but this is all to do with his "failure to thrive" as a baby/toddler due to his food allergies and intolerances making him suffer with pain every time he did it, therefore he would not eat, the psychological damage runs deeper than the physical.

Bobs desperate to grow, and not succeeding.
