Tiffy- poor dude with the teethers. Hopefully they come in quick so its over nice and fast. Kellen has been fussy and nawing on his hand a lot, but at his 6 mo. appt today the doc said its not teeth, so not sure what is up... besides the NEVER ENDING crud :(
Nicky- Awesome pic. I believe that is the same walk my cousin does up there every year :) Looks like a good time... though I'm sure this year was a bit different with the cold :(
Tiffany- That is awesome about the running. I love that your whole fam gets into it :)
All of these cute babies!!! I just cant get over it ;)
Today was Kellen's 6mo. appt. It went well. Kellen still has a touch of something even though he just finished a round of antibiotics this past week. Poor kid just cant get a break, but hoping that this warmer weather we are starting to get will help. The doctor is concerned because his length growth has slowed. Hes always been under the 0% for length and weight, but has fallen even more off for length now (23 1/2 inches today). Also, his head circ. went from the 5% to under the 0% (now 15.91"). Weight wise hes still small (13lbs 2oz)... but even though hes under the graph hes still following his own curve. The doc has to get me all on edge, and then tells me that we will just keep a close eye on it. ugg. None of my kids have been big by any means, and I'm not a big person. But I never had this happen before, andI cant help but to worry :(
We have 2 teeth now...yay! It seems that the top two are working their way out now. My poor little munchkin needs surgery next week on the 22nd :(. He has a communicating hydrocele that has developed into a hernia so they need to fix that asap. I'm nervous but I know he needs it. Anyway here are some recent pics. I can't seem to get him to let me get any pics of his teeth, he always has his tongue sticking out over them lol.
awww. look at those feet. so cute. looks like hes going yo be a tall guy :)
Hi! I know I've been MIA as well (seems like I'm not alone so at least that makes me feel better!). I loved reading though everyone's updates and seeing how big all the babies have gotten. :)
Carson is doing great! He'll be 6 months old in 9 days and I just can't believe it at all. Our lives have been pretty mellow since the new year just super busy with all the running back and forth to take DS1 to school and pick him up. I'll be so relieved in 3 weeks when school is out for the summer and we can be on a better schedule. Carson is weighing in at 19lb10oz currently and 27" long, so he's a big boy. He's almost sitting alone, loves standing, and can roll both back to front and front to back which can be extremely alarming when I find him face down in his crib in the mornings. Teething but no teeth yet, DS1 didn't get his first tooth until 7 months old so I expect Carson to follow closely. Breastfeeding is going strong and we just started him on solids this week which has been going alright but he tends to push it out still so I don't think he's quite ready yet. He is such a little ham and loves attention, especially from other kids. DS1 is great with him and super awesome helper, and Carson of course adores his older brother. We haven't seen a pediatrician since 2 months, we had a falling out with him (I did not agree with some of his actions and bedside manner). :/ So we're a bit behind on shots and in between pediatricians atm. I'm nervous about that because we're going on our first flight across country next week and I'm terrified he'll be exposed to something he should have been vaccinated for (he had his first set of shots at 2m but I never took him for his 4m visit to get the next round). I hope that all the antibodies he's gotten from me help protect him until we can get that situation figured out. Thankfully health wise he's been awesome so we haven't had the need for finding a new one immediately but I do hope to find one soon. Carson does seems to have bad allergies, both me and DH have it really bad especially living in AG central during harvesting time, but I don't think there is anything to be done for that at his age.
@Tiffany - my DS1 had tear duct issues until he was almost a year old and then it finally cleared up. Carson had it show up suddenly at around 8 weeks old - I put breast milk in his eye and a warm compress in the morning and after naps/before bed and it was gone within the week. Strangest thing because I never thought something like that would really work but I figured to give it a shot. Glad Cristiano looks like it's clearing up without medical intervention!
@Kier - I wouldn't let the dr make you worry about Kellen, he's growing at his own curve and that's all to be expected! Some kids are big and some are small, he just happens to be smaller.
@Tiffany - KUP on Gideon's surgery! He's such a cutie! :D
