Grady goes to the doctor

Grady had his one year check up this evening (gotta love the late evening appts!) He's doing very well! He's 20 lbs 15 oz, 30 inches tall, and his hemoglobin was 13.1. They routinely do the hemoglobin test at 12 months but we were really interested in it since he was anemic in the hospital in March (and before) and got the blood transfusion. The number should be over 10 so 13.1 was really good! Nothing new, he's got 5 teeth with a 6th headed through and two massive molars making their presence known. We'll keep working on moving to a sippy cup rather than bottle but still keep getting 15-18 oz of whole milk in him. No concerns about no words yet, he communicates very well and interacts very well. Should have some words by 15 months. He got the other part of his flu shot (remember to get yours to protect those kids!) which is extremely important for him due to his respiratory health history. He also got his MMR, Prevnar, and chicken pox. Poor little thighs will be sore! I'm thinking I should get a pertussis booster since mine has probably long since worn off and there's a fairly large outbreak of confirmed pertussis in and around where I live and work right now! Scary! I can't risk bringing that home to my kids!

Other than the normal check up stuff, that's about all there is to report!

We're quickly approaching the "one year" anniversary of things! In fact, we already did the "one year ago today (28th of Nov) Grady was born". Now, if memory serves, we should be doing "one year ago today Daddy had an upper respiratory infection" and real soon we'll do "one year ago today Grady was 2 wks old and got bronchiolitis". I'll try to pop in and update the "one year ago" stuff as it comes up. For those of you who don't know of the whirlwind this past year has been, you'll be entertained by the "one year ago" postings.

Just wanted to pop a picture of my little beauty on here! Isn't she a doll?
