Sean's test results are in!

The last of Sean's test results came in today. Everything came out normal! It's a huge relief!! We're going back to the doctor in about a month for another weight check and the doctor wants us to go to a dietitian to make sure Sean's getting enough calories. I wasn't told to, but I'm going to go ahead and start keeping a log of what Sean eats and drinks...and how much he nurses.

I also wanted to share a few cute Sean moments. Last night he pointed at me and said "my mama" and then just a little while ago he pointed at Maddy and said "that my baby". *swoon*

Sean's 18 month check up

Sean had his 18 month check up this afternoon. He is now 17 lbs 13.5 oz. That's only about a pound since his 15 month check up...not as much as the doctor would like to see. He also only grew half an inch...he's now at 29.5 inches. I have to take him to the local children's hospital to have lab work done..will go either tomorrow or Friday. They want to check his thyroid, kidneys, pituitary gland, hormone levels and if he has a wheat allergy. All could effect his growth. The poor guy also has Croup.

The main reason for the tests is b/c in 3 months he's gained less that a pound and half an inch...he's not even following the growth curve (much less on it!) anymore
