The Gid Meister...

We had his 9 month check up, he's in the 25th percentile for height and the 15th percentile for weight. Which boggles my mind. This child eats like a teenager! Waaay more than his friends who are always in the 90s. How is he not a tubbo? His doctor is testing is thyroid, but pretty convinced it's in his genes (and not from my gene pool). Stephen has always been tall and thin and his dad the same. So hopefully Gideon got the height & stout metabolism blessing.

He's over his dairy allergy (HURRAY FOR MOMMY'S DIET!) but he's now having asthma & allergy symptoms. So I am giving him breathing treatments twice a day and Zyrtec at night. Any advice there?

He's waking up about three times a night to nurse. For the love.
So I pretty much live sleep deprived (and high on coffee).

I have more notes on his crazy appetite later, but for now, here are a couple recent pics my friend Amanda took...

Bryan was always way under the "norm" for many years as an infant and child... now look at him... tall and strong and healthy. No worries honey. He looks great and you are doing an awesome job!

I agree with Eileen, don't let the doctors put him in a box with all the other "normal" babies. LOL! Advice on the asthma thing; wait that is what you asked right? Stay away from dairy. Ryanne was the same way and ditching dairy has kept her completely drug free and she's now 7! :)
