So, Cole's year checkup? Sigh. He's really skinny. Soooooo, the docs want me to take him to a GI specialist. I don't know how I feel about that. He's healthy in every aspect except heaviness. I don't know why he's not gaining weight as quickly as he's supposed to. He was a hair away from 19 pounds when he weighed in, which puts him in the 4th percentile, but is still in the 70th percentile for height.
I think I would have been panicking had he been my first child. I'm not panicking with him, though. He's a happy, well rested, active, good eating, diaper filling one year old. We'll get it figured out.......and I'll do my research on how a GI specialist could be of any help....
Putting that aside, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KIDDO!
It is so fun to hear him jabber. He got an Elmo phone for his birthday, and when his sister hasn't run away with it, it's fun to watch him try to get it by his ear and talk. He gets so excited about balls --it doesn't matter what sport style or size-- and he likes to play "catch" with them. He will roll them to you and expect you to promptly roll it back so the game can continue. His kisses are still the best, and his back patting hugs make me melt.
