I know that this blog has basically become defunct. I did a long post with pictures in May that somehow disappeared. But I need to jot down a few things that have happened since March... and hopefully this post won't also disappeared. Then if I ever get in front of my laptop at home again I'll upload some photos for this post too.
First, Wesley took his first unassisted steps on April 22. He is now running around like a crazy toddler who has been walking all his life.
Two, at his 15 month appointment back in the beginning of May, he weighed 17 lbs, 14.5 oz... he was in the 2nd percentile weight. He was 31 1/2" tall, making him in the 50th percentile for height. I just took him back to the doctor last week for a weight check and he is 18lbs 12oz, having fallen back off the chart but still gaining (rising with the chart, just below it). We also put him on Singulair in order to hopefully help with his allergy-like symptoms. He also had his blood drawn at his 15 month appointment to make sure that everything is ok (since he's so skinny). All was fine except his iron levels were low so he is now also on iron drops.
He cut his first set of molars on the top last week, bringing his teeth count to 10. However, his eye teeth on top are also poking through so he'll soon have 12!!
