*John weighs 20 pounds 12.8 ounces (I had to put that .8 in there!)
*He finally made it on the growth chart for his actual age (not his adjusted age) and is in the 10%for weight.....yaaahoooo!
*His ideal weight is 9.6kg and he is 9.4kg......again, yaaaahoooo!
*He is 28 and a half inches long!
*Next month when he is one years old (March 17th) adjusted, we are going to transition him to a new type of formula (forgot the name already) for toddlers. Did you hear that????? He's gonna be a toddler:)
*He needs to be drinking (tube fed) more H2O so he doesn't get dehydrated......especially when it starts warming up. So, we have to give him 4 ounces of water a day on top of his 800ml's of formula. So, I just filled up a syringe (60cc's) and squirted it directly in his button.........simple as that. I am going to do 2 ounces in the am and the other 2 before bed. Geez......the kid is NEVER going to know what hunger feels like.
*This summer we are going to try out a feeding clinic at PCH. The Dr. said it isn't the top of the line like other states have but, it's still good.......and it's all we've got here in AZ.
*The best part of the appointment is when the Dr. patted me on the back and told me what a WONDERFUL job Jamie and I were doing. That really made me feel good.
After that appointment we rushed home to grab John's stuff (food & spoons) for Speech and we were back in the car in a matter of minutes.
It was a busy morning but a good one!
