Max 18 month update - 11 September 2007

Max had his 18 month doctors appointment this week and did great, per usual. His wheat issue is gone but he has some sensitivity to Corn. Easy enough to avoid though. Otherwise all foods are fine for him to enjoy. He weighs 25.3 LB (50%) and is 33 inches (70%.) He just had a little growth spurt and will be wearing 18 month pants this fall. Overall he is doing very well and his vocabulary is above average. He has a lot of words and the Doctor was very impressed by his ability to count to 2. Go Max!

Liam's 3 Year Update - 18 August 2007

Liam had his 3 year old doctors appointment last week. He did great! He weighs 37 LBS (90%) and is 39 inches (85%.) He is right on track developmentally. He did everything that the doctor asked him to, including drawing a circle, jumping on 1 foot and carrying on a conversation well. When asked what his favorite food was, he answered Grapes. Boy was I happy about that. I was dreading him saying gum drops or fruit snacks or some other junk food that I sometimes give him.

He starts Preschool on Sept. 5. He doesn't really understand what that means, but he does know that he gets a Scooby Doo backpack so he is excited about that at least. He and Max are taking Gymnastics again this year and swim lessons. More 3 year photos will be posted soon.

The doctor says he is doing great! AND he outgrew his wheat intolerance, so he has been eating everything and loving it! He started walking about a month ago and is starting to run like mad.

Andrea and Scott's Wedding Weekend - 16 March 2007

Bob, Crystal and Max went to Rome, NY for the Wedding of Scotty G and Andrea. Max also turned one on Feb. 24. Congratulations all around.

Max 1 Year Update - 14 March 2007

Max had his 1 year doctors appointment on March 6. He did well. He is 30.25 inches and 21.05 pounds. He is 67% for his height and a peanut at 25% for his weight. He is completely healthy and right on track. His mood has improved a lot lately as his teeth seem to be hurting him less. There is a molar or 2 back there now and a few on the bottom still pushing through.

As for his wheat intolerance/allergy, we have to wait another 4 months to retry wheat and see how he handles it. They ended up taking some blood but any testing they do now isn't going to be 100% accurate. So I'll discuss the next step with the Pedi at his 15 month appointment. For now he eats everything and anything he can get his hands on and is starting to drink milk from a cup. He is cruising the furniture and chairs too so I'm sure walking is soon in our future. We'll post some new photos soon.

Kids update for July - 07 July 2006

Max is now over 4 months- 20 weeks to be exact. We went to see his pediatrician last week. He weighs 16.85, currently in the 95% of weight. he is 25.5 inches, and 68% of height. He is doing very well, but still has this allergy issue. We go back to the GI on July 11. He had a slight fever on Saturday from the immunizations, but it went away quickly. We'll post updated photos soon of all the fun things we have done this summer.

Talk to you later.

Latest update on Max - 22 June 2006

Max Update: Crystal says, we saw a GI at Children's last week. Max definitely has an allergy so we will work on figuring it out. I have gone on more of an elimination diet - now dairy, soy and wheat free. We have Max's 4 month appointment next week and then back to the GI for a follow up on July 11. He weighs 15.10 lbs as of last week and is still sleeping like a champ. He is being baptized this weekend. We will add new photos next week. He also started to try and roll over this past week. I expect any time now he'll get there!

13weeks - 29 May 2006

Photos of Max from weeks 11-13 and Liam

- 26 May 2006

Max Update: Max is now 3 months and weighs 14.9 lbs. We had a follow up appointment with Dr. Chan this week and Max still shows signs of some sort of allergy. So we had blood taken to test to see if he is anemic or has any bleeding problems. Happily he is fine on both counts. The next step in figuring out what is making him so uncomfortable is taking him to see a Pediatric GI doctor on June 13. Dr. Chan recommended that we take him to Children's Hospital so that is what we are doing. He also recommended that I keep on my dairy/soy free diet for the time being, at least until we see the specialist. Overall Max is healthy and happy and sleeping consistently through the night.

Max Update - 03 May 2006

Max had his 2 month appointment on Friday, April 29. He now weighs 13.5 lbs and is 23.5 inches long. He was diagnosed with an allergy so I am now on a diary and soy free diet. He was also diagnosed with Reflux and started Zantac to try to alleviate his pain. We are hoping he feels better soon. Max is a very happy boy when he doesn't have his digestive issues. He smiles and coos and even started to squeal. The poor kid has had a rough few weeks!

We had a challenging 3rd week, but things seem to be getting better every day. He is sleeping well enough at night, at least one 4 hour stretch, so Mom is feeling better as well. Liam has been great with Max. We are thankful that he enjoys his brother thus far!

- 10 March 2006

Update... Max is now 2 weeks old. As of Tuesday, he weighed 7.7 lbs and was 20.5 inches long. He has gained 9 ounces since leaving the hospital, and the doctor is very glad for that. He is getting more alert every day. He is even decent at night, usually going right back to sleep after nursing. We have been sleeping with him, but may try to move him into his bassinet soon as he is very noisy. Bob is going back to work on Monday so I'm a little nervous how the 3 of us will do, but we have a few activities planned so hopefully it'll be better than expected.

- 15 February 2006

People born in the Year of the Dog possess the best traits of human nature. They have a deep sense of loyalty, are honest, and inspire other people¡¦s confidence because they know how to keep secrets. But Dog People are somewhat selfish, terribly stubborn, and eccentric. They care little for wealth, yet somehow always seem to have money. They can be cold emotionally and sometimes distant at parties. They can find fault with many things and are noted for their sharp tongues. Dog people make good leaders. They are compatible with those born in the Years of the Horse, Tiger, and Rabbit.

Baby Shower - 04 January 2006

(This set of pictures is from about 2 months ago) Last week my friends surprised me with a baby shower for Peanut!

Sorry to be a big PITA. Here are some photos of the afternoon.

Baby Peanut at 29 weeks - 16 December 2005

[Christmas day addition: Its a boy!!!! ]

We decided to treat ourselves to a Christmas Suprise and have a 4D Ultrasound done of Baby Peanut. Besides these really cute and lifelike photos, the Technician has written the baby's gender in an envelope, to be opened on Christmas Morning. We are very excited. She couldn't tell us how big the baby is, but she suspects a "good size" as the cheeks are nice and full. There have been limited Krispy Kreme's this time around, so let's hope we don't have a repeat 10 Pounder.

- 09 August 2004

Liam is sleeping, so I have a few moments... It has been a week since we went to the hospital... a lot of adjustment... Liam's day is 3 hours long. Liam feeds for about 40 minutes, then has some fussiness (crying unless held or entertained), then he sometimes sleeps. Repeat. We have been home from the hospital for 36 Liam days or almost 5 earth days. Since we are breastfeeding, there is no way to get more than 2 hours of sleep at a pop. Alas, he seems to rarely settle down after feeding... so we are getting nightly naps... we are sometimes tired, irritable, overwhelmed... and of course, always delighted to have little Liam...
