I kinda did...you can stop after there are no more measurements...this was the Iherp for my sick bluey, Baneling. I do keep track of growth though, specially when young. Your eyes will not deceive you...one month she put on 4 inches!
This is not per shed though.

We have kept tabs on Lissy, she was roughly 8-10 weeks when we got her, and was 10cm long. That was in October 2011, as of May 2012 she has gone to 31 cm and had 5 sheds. I try to weigh and measure occasionally particularly if she seems bigger. It is something I'd like to continue as it is very interesting, I also really enjoy watching her body language.
