Genetics!

I decided to do a post to clarify a few things! Those of you who know Finn, know that he is a little bit of a runt for his age. (But a dang cute runt!) And because he is completely off the charts in every way we had to take him to Children's Hospital last week for some tests. These tests were to make sure that he small due to genetics rather than some type of disease. Everything came back just fine and he is indeed small due to genetics. But looking at his parents we aren't exactly giants or anything. So I decided to go through some of my pictures when I was Finn's age and I hope that it clarifies that my sweet little boy just might take after his mom. (Poor kid!!!)

Our sweet little boy


This is Lindy at Finn's age

For some reason I think that Finn looks just like Lindy in this picture... What do you think?


This is Lindy when she was a Sunbeam at church. I think that I might have these other girls beat on being the shortest in class. Dang genetics!

I love your genetics! Finn is the cutest little person ever, short boys are sexy! Glad you guys can sleep better at night knowing that your little boy is perfectly fine and healthy, and dang cute like his mom :) Ok, I guess Jesse might have had a little to do with something, so props to both of you for making such an adorable boy. So are you guys comin to dinner with us to celebrate Nics victory? It will have to be when we are all feeling better in the Porter house, but we are thinkin Texas de Brazil, or we can do something else since you guys arent huge carnivores...

You wouldn't be Lindy if you weren't little!! you're so cute, and so is your little guy! Hey, my kids all inherit my husband's big round head! We all pass on somethin' I guess! :)

There's nothing wrong with small. Who knows, he may take off later on. Mason has probably reached his max height. JK

That is too funny! I cant believe how tiny Lindy was... I mean it makes sense cause she is still tiny.That sunbeam pic was the best...her legs were straight out because her kness couldnt reach the end of the seat... so great. Who knew that Finn looks just like his mama... this is very lucky for him considering the alernative!
XOXO

I've always said that Finn looks just like his mommy; from his gorgeous big brown eyes to his petite size. His size is only natural since Lindy comes from a long line of shorties! Finn's grandma is only 4'11"!!! The big joke in our family is that with the new booster seat law she just barely avoids having to use one when she drives!

I can't believe how Lindy and Finn or total twins! I think Lindy and Finn are just about the cutest people I've ever seen! Keep is real Spencers!

I'm not going to call Finn 'petite' because of what it might do to his ego when he's 13. He's just waiting for the right time to shoot up a foot a month.

Shelley said...

Umm yea, Finn is definitely his mothers son! It is just crazy how much you look like each other . I'm glad he's just fine and on his own growth chart. He is such an adorable little boy and I wouldn't change a thing! And thanks for calling me today! You are such a wonderful friend.

Wow, you must be relieved! He looks perfect the way he is! Such a cutie!

CLUFF CLAN said...

Nothing wrong with being a little on the short side. I always wished I was shorter. Congratulations on coming back to Utah! It will be so nice for you guys to be back near family.
