Well, today was the 4 month and 2 year check-ups. Wow. What amazing little men, I have! Here are their updates:
Matthew- Matthew is 24 1/4 inches and 14 lbs. He is in the 25 %tile for each. His head, however, is catching up with brothers. His head is in the 75th %tile. Oh dear! haha. The doctor is pretty concerned about his eczema and is almost 100% certain that he has asthma. They are going to start him on asthma medicine in two months, because there's nothing approved for little ones under 6 months of age. So, we just have to pray that he doesn't have any attacks or issues, until he can start on the medicine. If he does start exhibiting severe issues, then we might have to resort to a nebulizer, before medicine. I just hope it doesn't come to that! I was told that he will have to be on the meds for AT LEAST 1.5 years. Poor little man :(. Everything else was great! His hernia is even gone!!! yay! :) He did get four shots that made him SCREAM at decibels beyond anything I've ever heard.
Adam- This child is just amazing. (toot, toot) He is 35 inches (oh dear. That means his projected final height is almost 6 feet tall!!) and 27 lbs. So, he's tall and skinny. :) They did a verbal and motor skills assessment, to see at what age level he is. From everything they did to him (had him jump on one foot, talking to him, have him draw lines and circles, say numbers, etc. etc.) they assessed him at 3.5 years old! WHAT? I know it's just an estimate, but I am still shocked. Not that I didn't think my little man was smart, but I had no idea he knew some of the things he was telling the doctor. I'm so proud of him. And, he had a lead test, too. Why not? Who knows what toys he sucked on, or what he's been exposed to, so I went ahead and had the test done. He loved that he was bleeding; he kept saying "look mommy! Bleeding in tube!" haha. Silly boy.
And for your viewing pleasure.... More hot chocolate fun. :)
