Way back and wordful Whensday - my little Miss is growing up so fast!

I have decided that I am brave, so I am extending the time to ask me questions to tomorrow at 10:00 am, my time. So guys, one question per commenter, and I will answer literally everything! So help me with my birthday post. And Jeanette, I will celebrate, but low key.
Playing with Angie for Wordful Wednesday....
Girlchild had her 5 year check-up yesterday. Yip, she is a whole month short of 5 but January is crazy for me and at the Paediatrician, do this was convenient timing.

She did so well - some of the milestones are already on grade R level and she has even achieved one or two Grade 1 items. The doctor is please that we are not sending her to school early ( we have the option as she is a January birth) - she agrees that academically she will be ready early but that on an emotional level for high school, waiting is certainly better. This just confirms what we have decided in conjunction with her school.

Once again the doctor was impressed with the quality of both her languages and her maths skills, that we know will be on grade R level next year.

Physically, all is well. No concerns. Her statistics are:

Length: 113 cm (44,5 inches) ( between 90th and 97th percentile) - gosh she is tall
Weight: 17 kg (37,5 pounds) (right on the 50th percentile)

And to show off how she looks now, some more of Jeanette's beautiful pictures:

  7. she is gorgeous!

    i skipped 3rd grade and it was ok til i got to high school. after that i was difficult for me socially, so i think you are doing the right thing as well.

    Well done mom, she's doing so very well!

  9. Seriously, Cat, I think she is absolutely one of the most beautiful little misses I've ever seen. If she's so pretty in pictures, I can only imagine the impact of her walking and talking!
