Colby Update

Potty Training
Colby is pretty much completely potty trained. About two weeks after he started wearing underwear during the day, he started keeping his diaper dry at night at at rest time. So now he is in underwear 100% of the time!
The only down side to this is he uses it as an excuse to get out of bed during rest time. He often stands at his door yelling and if someone doesn't come help him go to the bathroom right away, he goes on the floor. He has started taking his pants and underwear off, so normally there is just a mess on the floor... but most of the time it's poop. :(

After give days of the new dosages of allergy meds, Colby was still wheezing a lot and having a hard time catching his breathe, so I called the doctor back on Wednesday. She ordered a nebulizer for him and he's doing breathing treatments with albuterol. Currently we are doing both morning and night time treatments and it seems to be helping a great deal. The allergist said to to do two treatments a day or a week and then cut back to just night time treatments. Once we feel he's doing better, we can cut back to as needed.
He does really well with the treatments... he sits really still and holds his mask to his face. I think he likes watching the "smoke!"

Weight Gain
After his weight check in the beginning of April, we bought a scale so that we could check Colby's weight often at home. He is still very slowly gaining weight... according to our scale he's up about half a pound in the past six weeks!

18 Weeks Old

I'm posting these a little late... but I did take them on the right day :)

Peyton's Four Month Check Up

Last Monday, Peyton had a well check.

Peyton was 12lbs 12oz...24 inches long...and had a head circumference of 41.1cm.

He seems huge, but he's in between where Kyle and Colby were at four months... so he's really not that big... 10th percentile for weight and I don't remember what he said for height.

No real concerns for Peyton. His GERD seems to be under control well with his meds, so we are just going to continue doing what we are doing for that. He's growing and eating well and everything else!

Back in February when he was in the hospital (the first time... for the crazy high fever), they did an ultrasound and found that one of his kidney's had some inflammation. There really wasn't much concern about it and they were pretty sure it was just caused by him being sick. But... we are doing a follow up ultrasound this upcoming Monday just to double check that all is well.
