LM had his one year check up today----23lbs 14oz, 31 1/4 inches tall and
17 3/4 circumference (grow head grow!). Luckily, the doctor didn't seem
concerned about his lingering cough (we're supposed to bring him in if
it gets worse again and he's wheezing) or the red food dye reaction
(just avoid it for awhile--though she did give me a tip on making red
icing easier!). She was impressed with the words he can say and his lack
of stranger anxiety. He took his shots like a champ and is napping now!
Or was, until I typed that.
We're supposed to work on upping his whole milk intake to 16oz a
day...which means I need to get on dropping the afternoon bottle and
hopefully that will help. We're supposed to do one
bottle at a time dropped and drop the others as we feel comfortable.
But--she did suggest dropping his ounces down to 5 bottle since he
really doesn't need the full 7 anymore. I love our doctor...she's
totally non-judgmental...I never feel like I'm not "doing something
