Amelia Paige is almost 10 months old now. She is a happy little girl who loves to laugh and dance. She is on the go ...to say the least. Pulling up on EVERYTHING and a really fast crawler. She is eating table food and loving it. She is REALLY teething now. Drooling a lot and fussy at times. She just cut her 3rd tooth (2 on the bottom and 1 that just broke through on the top). It is so weird to think about her with teeth. I am so used to her sweet gummy smile.
She is such a joy!
Today was Lawson's checkup with his Endocrinologist specialist, Dr. McCormick. We see him every 6 months for growth evaluation & bloodwork. They check all of his hormone levels and chart his growth to verify that he is on an upward climb. Lawson is growing at a rate of 96% (since his last visit where he was growing at a rate of 2%). The growth hormone is working quite well. Lawson is in the 68% for weight (35 lbs.) and 8% for his height (a little over 3 ft). The doctor was really pleased with his progress. He did not have to adjust his Diabetes Insipidus meds (DDAVP). They did up his Seizen (growth hormone) dosage to match his current size. Though it was a 2.5+ hour appointment, Lawson did really well. He wasn't happy about them drawing blood but a bag of Doritos helped him recover:).
