Developmental Pediatrician Appointment

Livie Update:
6/24/13 PPA Kidz Klinic

Went to her developmental pediatrician today.
We had good and bad news.

Let's get the bad news over with:
She has a wandering eye so we have to get back to the eye dr.  Maybe need a patch and drops. If that doesn't work she will need surgery.

She is almost 14 months old and the size of a 6 month old.  At this rate they said she may not even be 4'11.  They are going to re-evaulate her at 18 months old and see if we need to see an Endo Doc and put her on growth hormones (which I really don't want to do at all).

Good News
she is right on track her her adjusted age! (11 months old)
Looking really good and babbling a lot.
They want to start sleep training and let her CIO. ("cry it out"ugh that is going to be so hard)
They like that she is eating well but want us to go up to 12oz a day of Pediasure and gave me a list of high calorie foods.

So all and all it was a decent appointment.  

She is 25 inches long and weighs 15 pounds 4 oz

We go back again in October.

Father's Day 2013 and Updates!

Father's Day 2013!

Wow- I guess I got behind in my posts!  Father's Day this year was mellow.  Both Kayla and I were getting over being sick but managed to go out for lunch and dinner with my husband to celebrate his day.

Kayla Update:
Miss Kayla has started the summer program and begins full day Pre-K in August! In the mean time she is busy with swim class and gymnastics.  We have recently ventured into the world of "no naps" and that has been pretty interesting to say the least but she is much more pleasant in the mornings.  She is growing up so fast!  I feel like she will be in high school soon even though we aren't even in grade school yet!  

Livie Update: 
We have 4 teeth now!  I was starting to wonder when they would show up since it had been 2 months since her first 2 appeared but they are popping out like crazy now.  Her reflux meds are working great and she loves to eat!  I think she is happy to be off the nasty Similac Alimentum formula.  We see her Developmental Pediatrician on Monday.  I'm excited to see what her weight is.  We also got our first haircut!!!
Watch out!  We have a climber!!!  She is also walking along the couch with help so I'm sure she will be walking soon!
