So yes, I always new my boys were special. But who knew this much? We went to the pediatrician yesterday. Joshua had his 3 year check up and Lucas had his 4 month check up. Mr. Joshua is pushing 48 pounds. On the charts he is probably ranging around the 150th percintile. Yes, thats my boy!!!
Lucas is special too. He's around the -75th percentile. Is that even right? Maybe the 0.75 ?? Whatever. LOL. We are trying different ways to get some meat on that boy. Working around breast milk and formula. We might have to start making the formula a higher calorie count too. Its interesting to hear our dietician talk. Weight per kilo's, yada yada. Who knows what she is talking about.
Things are going well though. I'm almost done breast feeding though. While on vacation, I was breast feeding exclusivly. But after he lost weight, I was pumping and giving him formula. But now that I am only pumping, my milk is almost gone. After 4 months of just mostly pumping, I am at the end. I am proud of myself for making it to our origional goal of actually breast feeding, and for pumping this long. But Lucas' health is most important and he needs more. And well, formula is way easier for momma too.
Lucas is one happy baby that is for sure. Our therapists were excited to see his progress since before we left for NY. His eye sight has improved so much and his motor skills are great. Our dr was excited too. Actually saying that his motor skills are that of a 4 month old! Holy cow. How amazing. God is good!
Our big boy Joshua is doing well too. He started potty training Monday, and much to my surprise, is doing awesome!!! We started off having to pee every 20 minutes. Yes, 20 minutes all day long. Tuesday was about 30 minutes. And Wednesday was averaging about every hour. And today was much better around an hour and a half. We tried training him in NY but it just didnt work. I wasn't ready and neither was he. Its just working and I am more than thrilled.
