chunky monkey; behemoth baby


We had a checkup with Dr. Nelson on Thursday for Lars.  His kidney function is still perfectly intact.  His electrolytes looked totally normal, and his growth charts were stellar.  He was 14 pounds 3 oz at 9 weeks of age, putting him at about the 90-95% for weight.  Sam was only 14 pounds at 12 months, so we're pretty happy with this level of chubbiness.  Lars's length was just over 24 inches, also in the 90% percentile.  He definitely likes to eat, and we hope he keeps it up indefinitely.  He's tolerating the full dose of cystagon now, at 100 mg every 6 hours.  He sleeps through the night for the most part, too, except for when we have to give him his meds at 3:00 a.m. 



We figured out where Lars gets his infantile behavior from.




Sam LOVES LOVES LOVES his baby brother.


Ask the wise Buddha for advice.

                        Annie's House,  Bagheera's House, Baby Elephant's House


Sam still loves his beanie babies so we made houses for them. duh.



Aunt Morgan came to visit from Washington DC and we got to pick her up from the airport.  Sam couldn't wait to ask her to make Bobby's house.  



The finished neighborhood.  We can always think of something to do with a box.
