Pediatrician Visit

Today Lil' Chris and Ayla had their well visits at the pediatricians. It went great! She said they are both doing great and that Lil' Chris is doing really well for having CF!

His measurements have always been a little different at the pediatricians than at the CF clinic. Here they said that his weight was almost 28 lbs, where the clinic said 30 lbs. They said his height is 37 inches where the clinic said 35, so who's right??? IDK!

She wants to see Lil' Chris eating more macaroni type foods instead of baby food. So would I, but he refuses to eat any mac n cheese or any type of macaroni unfortunately. So she suggested he see a speech therapist to help him to eat more of this type of food. I told her that we can get a free nutritionist through BCMH(his secondary insurance), so that is what we are going to do. I'll let you know how it goes.

While we were in the room and she was putting all his info in her computer, I told Lil' Chris "Don't touch" and she laughed and said "That's funny telling a 2 year old not to touch!" I said "He actually listens pretty good! He'll stop touching or doing whatever when we tell him to usually." I don't think she really believed me, but he is really a good kid. We are VERY blessed to have such a GREAT kid!!

She was very proud of Lil' Chris for learning to ask to go on the potty so quickly! She thinks he is ready for a toddler bed :0 He may be ready, but I'm not so sure mommy and daddy are ready for that yet ;-0 We'll see.

He has been doing so great with potty training! Today he had one accident, but it was basically all my fault though. I was giving Ayla a bottle and he was trying to tell me he had to go, but I thought he was just trying to get my attention since I had just tried him on the potty right before I started feeding her. Sorry kiddo...mommy's fault ;(

Ayla weighs 17 lbs and 10 oz. and she is over 26 inches long!! She is getting sooooo big soooooo fast ;( I can't believe she is 7 months old already!! She has 2 teeth on the bottom coming in already! You can't feel them, but you can see them...they are so cute;-) She can now start to eat baby veggies and start drinking water or juice in a sippy cup. I can't believe she is ready for all this already! Time flies!

Ayla had to get 3 shots unfortunately :( Then she got to drink that special juice. It must have tasted weird, b/c she kept sticking her tongue out afterwards. It was cute. Lil' Chris just had to get his finger pricked for a lead test. He was NOT happy about it! He got a band aide on it afterwards and you would think he broke his finger or something! He wouldn't use that hand for the longest time! He just kept holding that hand up in the air. It was so funny seeing him try to play at the park with only one hand :-) LOL

Sorry there are no pics. They were really quick today thankfully! AND Lil' Chris got to wait in the waiting room since it was empty, so that was nice;-)
PS. Pics coming soon:)

I'm glad both kids are doing well!!!

My brother used to hate getting his finger pricked...he would do the same thing that lil Chris did afterwards too! As soon as he saw the nurse at the pediatrician, he would start screaming in anticipation of that! I guess being a CFer you get used to that!

It's crazy how different clinics show different weights and different heights. My scale at home is different from transplant clinic, but I've learned how many pounds it is off, so i can usually estimate pretty good what it will be. And they never check heights anymore...i guess since most of us are done growing...although i wish i could just get one more inch from somewhere :)

Carson has that same problem with different clinics. We always use the same scales at his GI clinic and those are the official ones. But Carson is 3 years, 4 months and his is only 29 pounds. I cannot believe how little that man has gained. We will just have to keep working.

I think the band aid deal would have been funny to see.
