Jayden just turned 5 yesterday, and he only weighs 42lbs, I feel like he is so little, He is a VERY picky eater, He eats more veggies than he does meat, But his doctor don't find anything wrong with his weight....

When Kyra turned 5 last year, she weighed 36 pounds. She'll be 6 on february 19th and weighs 50 pounds now. She's also grown about 7 or 8 inches in height.
Your son's weight sounds fine :-) And I saw the picture yesterday, he's not too tiny :-)

That's actually an average weight for a 5 year old (depending on height).  My youngest is 5 and 43 lbs.  My 8 year old is only 48 lbs -- he's really picky.

  My son will be 6 April 30th. He weighs 43 pounds & is 108 cm. Every child is different & I think it really depends on the size of the childs parents, more then some silly growth chart.

Haha! Same here! Kyra's about 47 inches and we all joke she'll be holding those bad report cards over my head saying "come on mom, if you can reach it you can have it" before she's out of elementary school   :-)
