Logan's 18 month appointment

It's been a whole week since my last post? We've really just been in survival mode since then because both boys have been sick. Connor just had a cold toward the end of last week and is over it now but Logan seems to have caught it too. His temperature peaked at 103.9 (eek!) on Monday night and of course hasn't been sleeping very well so none of us are fully rested. I was reassured by the Children's Hospital phone nurse that they don't really worry about temperatures until they reach 105 and the child is medically lethargic, not responding at all or making eye contact, so even though Logan was acting ok and not dehydrated 103.9 was still scary! Anyway, he seems to be on the mend now...

Logan had his 18 month appointment today and he's growing like a weed! He is 34 inches tall which is the 90th percentile for 18 month old boys and weighs 24 lbs 15 oz which is in the 45th percentile. He's only 10 lbs lighter than Connor! Luckily Connor still has a decent height advantage! We're also going to have his speech evaluated next month just to be on the safe side. He's on the low end of normal for the number of words he says which the doctor is attributing to the couple of ear infections he's had over the last several months, but we're going to go ahead with an evaluation just to be sure. It's free so, why not? His ears looked good today so hopefully we can avoid any more infections before the evaluation!

  1. I wished I had done the speech earlier than we did. ADam only had seven months, can't imagine how well he'd do with a full year.

    It will be good, I promise. It will probably just suck when he won't have to do it anymore. I am still sad over poor Miss Janet. I am wondering if it would be poor taste to ask her to babysit?
