I realized today that I have been slacking in my responding to emails (sorry everyone!). I just wanted to make sure you all knew that I get them, I just don’t always have the time to respond and if I don’t right away then I forget to do it (oops!).
Well, last Friday Kian had his immunizations. He did have the chicken pox vaccine and the MMR vaccine - so far not problems (knock on wood) and hopefully the next week we will be clear too – this is the time when it could start showing signs of problems.
Kian’s One Year Appointment
At the appointment Kian weighed 18lbs. 2 ounces (which is a pound up from about a month earlier!) and he’s 28 inches? Sorry, I can’t remember exactly what he was! But our new Ped (Dr. Brummer) spent a good amount of time with us and talked to me about everything in detail. I really like him a lot :)
Kian is still having some problems eating whole food versus pureed. There are some textures he’s ok with and others he is not. If this is still an issue in about 6 months, Dr. Brummer said they have oral therapy that can help Kian out in this area since he might have a problem from the NG tube he had when he was in the hospital.
Today he had Macaroni and Cheese for the first time and LOVED it! I am trying to branch out a bit in what he will eat but trying not to push him too much. He really enjoyed feeding himself and so did I as it gave me some time to do somethings in the kitchen while he ate :)
Things have become a little busier these days for us for many different reasons – I hope to do a weekly update when possible! Thanks for stopping in :)
