Nathan had his 1 year well check-up over a week ago now. He is now 20 pounds 10 ounces and 28.5 inches. I think it's quite crazy that he was 18 pounds 4 ounces at his 4 month well check-up. So that means he only gained 2.5 pounds in 8 months. His pedi says it is pretty normal though. He is right on track and pretty average size now. No longer 95th percentile for weight! lol I worried about this for the first several months even though everyone told me he would thin out. I still think he is absolutely perfect though. He has been a tough one though, with all the medical issues. The rash on his face had gone away, but is now back with a vengance and it looks absolutely terrible. He got a big boy haircut the other day and I think it looks so much better. Anyways, he goes to the allergist next Friday and then the dermatologist (if the allergist recommends) the following Monday so hopefully we can get some sort of answers.
Any other LO's still shoving so much food into their mouth that they choke? Sometimes he will continue eating. You would think he would have learned by now. He chokes on a daily basis. I have even tried only giving him a few little pieces but he still shoves them all in his mouth. If he has a mouth full and tries putting more in and you tell him now, he gets the most pathetic look on his face and just starts bawling. It is kinda amusing actually.
I call Nathan my little doggy. He ALWAYS has something in his mouth. He will crawl around with a toy in his mouth for an hour without dropping it. I want to get rid of the pacifier but at the same time I don't want all the toys in his mouth. Any suggestions?
