The day started with an early morning appointment with my GI, Dr Davies. Lucille, Mommy and I were 45 minutes early (the car pool lane really does work!) but they got us right into a room. Naked, I weighed in at 20 lbs exactly - but with the cast it's hard to say what my weight truly is right now. My dietician, Nicole came in to chat with Mommy. She was happy to hear that I have been doing really well on the Good Start soy formula. On the can it says for 9-24 months old - and I am closely approaching 24 months. But Nicole says I am closer to the size of a 12 month old so I can continue to stay on the formula for quite awhile if it is working for me. Dr Davies thought I looked pretty good. Taking into account my cast, it looked like I had a little growth spurt and grown taller but my weight didn't quite keep up to my last visit. Dr Davies wants to increase my intake by 10% to keep me on a good growth curve. Hopefully when we return in three months I will be back where they would like me to be.
In the afternoon, my occupational therapist, Karen came to play with me. She had brought paints and a frame so I could paint a picture for Daddy for Father's Day. I think I did a pretty good job don't you? When Daddy came home from the airport I was still awake and I showed him the frame I had made him. I think he really liked it and will probably save it forever! I am so glad Daddy is back home, I was asking about him all day!
