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
