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.
