Ender's Doctor Appointment

Today we had Ender's "12" month appointment. I say it that way because I am behind on his appointments and shots so to them it was his 9 month well baby! Anyway, since he's almost 1 I am counting it as his stats for being 1. He weighed 20.4 pounds today. He was also somewhere around 29 inches tall. I actually don't remember exactly, but I don't think they got it right anyway because he dropped from 75% to 50%. He has been at 75% since he was born. Today he was fussy and cried every time they touched him so during the measuring he was pretty wiggely. I will try to find out for my records what it was exactly though.
Other than that it was just a normal appointment. I did not give him his shots today because he has had a cold for the last week and I didn't feel comfortable doing this until his immunity system for better. The doctor didn't love that, but liked the idea of bringing him in next week when he's better just for the shots. He was happy with everything Ender would do, and said it was ok for us to try milk now. So today we have had one bottle of milk. We shall see how it goes, if his fussyness and rash comes back then we'll have to do soy. He said definetly not goats milk. So, I am praying that he is ok on milk right now. I have switched the kiddos to organic milk for the most part.
I will do an actual birthday one for him next week.


  1. I hope the switch to milk goes okay. To answer your question about cheering. Lillian is going to be an upwards cheerleader. If you interested go to upwards.org to find a Church that does the program in your area. They do soccer, cheer, football, and basketball. Have a great day!

  2. Praying milk is okay - you know my feelings about soy... :)
    Can't wait to see bday pics of both the kiddos!

  3. I'm hoping so too. The Doc said absolutely NO goat's milk, so I don't have any other option if the milk doesn't work!

  4. Sarah- he's not allergic to the lactose it was the milk protein. And that is something they grow out of! We are day two of milk and things are going okay :)

  5. Ohhh good =) That's awesome!I can't wait for the milk b/c that formula is a killer (on the bank)!
