A growing boy....
At 18 months, Braden weighed in at 24 lbs and 28 1/2 inches tall. At 19 months, he is now 24 lbs 6 oz and 30 inches tall!! The doc measured him at a mere 29 1/8", but he was not relaxed like he was when mommy & daddy decided to measure him the other day. His therapists kept commenting they thought he was getting bigger, and we agreed, so we decided to measure ourselves, and imagine our surprise when a month later he had grown so much!!
People often comment on what a "big baby" he is... but if he developed like other children he would be moving about and you could see how short he is in stature compared to his peers... he is not even on the curve for children his age. However, for his weight he is just below the 50% mark.
We still don't have results to share from his MRI yet, but hope to next week. Please pray for our doctors to revisit all his medications with the new information so hopefully we can still postpone the keto diet and try some new meds.
We didn't take too many Thanksgiving pics - too busy frying 3 turkeys and enjoying time with friends... so I am sharing pictures from earlier this month when Jackson's mommy & grandma went with Braden and I to "Mistletoe Market". Again Jackson just loves playing with Braden's hair, and his grandma got such a kick out of how much joy Jackson expressed through his laughter and squeals of delight as he played with Braden.
We will post some photos from Braden's christmas session next week, so stay tuned!!
