Sean: Fifteen Month Stats

You know how everyone always say they wish the baby can stay little forever? Well, they don't really mean it.

Sean, however, has decided he wants to stay little. And he is succeeding. Here are his 15 month stats (sigh)

Weight: 19lbs 3 ounces
Height: 30 3/4 inches

Numbers that are not that much different than his one year stats. And a few ounces less than he weighed at his appointment about two weeks ago. They even measured his height twice and basically gave him that extra quarter inch. (SIGH)

Okay, now what? The pulmonary specialist had mentioned that past labs showed an irregular pH level so he suggested looking into that if his did not gain more weight. The pediatrician had that note in his chart so they drew more blood yesterday (that was not easy) to check the current pH levels. She is also setting us up with an appointment with a renal specialist. Not sure if we will need to go if the blood work comes out normal. Guess we will find out in a few days.

As of now, our next appointment is not until June 19th when we go back to the pulmonologist. Until then, I will continue to stuff my child with as much non-milk based fattening food as I can find. And if he would just sit still for more than 2 seconds some of it may actually stick.
