Today we had a Dr.’s Apt. for the babies. It was a follow up with the endocrinologist. For those of you that don’t know, the babies are small. They were diagnosed with failure to thrive when they were 6 months old. Basically what this means for mine is that they were not on the charts in their weights. If you are below the 5th percentile they consider that failure to thrive. Now all my children have been small and on the small side of the charts. Since the babies were not behind in any other way and were hitting all their milestones on time they sent us to the endocrinologist to make sure there wasn’t something going on inside that may be making them not gain weight, but by the time we got in to see the endocrinologist they had started gaining weight, still off the charts but not enough to cause her concern, she just said we need to come back in 3 months that was about 9 months ago, this is our 3rd follow up with her. Today Hosea weighed 22lbs 7 oz and was 31.34 in long and Micah was 21 lbs and 30.94 in long. Hosea is right at the bottom of the chart but is actually on it and Micah is right below the curve but his curve is going up so that is good. She was happy with their progress and said she would like to see them in 6 months this time and if they are still gaining weight and doing fine then we won’t have to see her any more. Luckily we haven’t had to have any blood work done.
Between taking Avrah to school and the Dr.’s apt I took the babies to Reasor’s and for the first time they got to ride in the car cart, they loved it.
Dinner tonight had a 3 out of 5 kids rating. Meaning 3 of them ate it, 2 of them threw it on the floor.
