totally forgot to do an 18 month post on the little guy. Don't really have any new pics of him. he is on the move so much lately that it is hard to catch him in one place. I will work on it in the next few weeks. maybe by 19 months...
well at our appointment we weighed....drum roll please........
19 lbs 4 ounces. I found his 15 month appointment card and he weigh 15 lbs exactly at that visit. So in 3 months we have gained 3 lbs 4 ounces. crazy stuff.
we are having difficutlties sleeping. HE is so distracted during the day that he doesn't want to eat and then wakes up starving in the middle of the night.
likes to stand in his crib when he screams for mom and dad.
he is climbing up stairs and across and over everything.
he is babbling in sentences..It is so funny to try and repeat his babble and have a baby babble conversation with him. He gets the biggest smile on his face.
he is incredibly social. we have the kid that screams when we won't let him go to the nursery. We haven't gotten over the snotty nosed kids this winter...and we are so suseptable to RSV still. Beware there are a ton of cases this year in northern Indiana, too.
He is cruising around flat walls and letting go at times. he also loves to walk holding our fingers especially when he goes really fast with Daddy.
he has a fond new love of dog food. I know gross....but it has started a new string of putting things in our mouth again. real things like food. He prefers dumdum suckers and cheesy pringles...right now.
We are seeing an ENT for our multiple ear infections this month and we are monitoring his kidney function very closely with his recent weight gain. We also get to go back and see Dr Billmire for the first time in 6 months. we can let her know that pooping is going well and that might clear us from seeing her for a while. We saw our new Developemental ped. last week and it went very well. I have to call to day because i haven't heard from her yet, but she seems to be on top of things. The bad news is, worst case senario for getting rid of Jackson's puking is another surgery. I wish my kid could catch a break one of these days. She has promised to weigh all other options before we settle on surgery. I am hopeful that we will find another option. She is also going to help with some docs I have had a hard time getting ahold of ...we will see if this helps us get in to see them sooner. Jackson also is or we are preparing for his next surgery on March 6th. Another hip cast for 6 weeks. it will be nice to have these out of the way before this summer...so we can enjoy the beautiful out doors.
thank you all for your continued prayers...He has made so much progress in the past 18 months...I can't wait to see what he has in store for the next few.
