Sam's Results

Well, as I mentioned before, we had Sam and Joshua's appointments yesterday. Joshua is already 9 lbs. 2 oz. at two weeks old! He is getting so big and so fast! I definitely don't have to worry if he is eating enough... Everything else is going great with him also! Other than the fact that he still has his eye infection, but we are still working on that with the drops.

Sam is doing good too...he is only 25 lbs. 4 oz...which for a 2 year old, is small, but he is growing and is on the charts and thats all that matters. His ears and throat and everything looked good, according to the dr. He was such a brave boy too! I was so proud of him. He did cry when he got his shot but he got over it quickly and wanted to keep looking at the "sticker" (band-aid) on his leg. Then we went over to the lab and I held him while a nurse held down his arm and the other one stuck it. He was in such a good mood and flirting with the nurses. They couldn't stop saying how cute he was. When they tied the tight rubber band thing around his arm he said, "too tight," but he kept smiling away...he had no idea what was coming. So when they finally poked him it took him by surprise and he was crying so hard and squirming all over the place. The vain rolled, of course, and they had to dig to find it again, which they couldn't do while he was squirming everywhere, so I kept telling him how good of a boy he was and asked him to be still and he did! He was so good. When he stayed still, other than the fact that he was whimpering still, he did so good! And we showed him his blood going up the tube and I kept telling him how good he did so when they were done he was so proud of his green band-aid and couldn't wait to go out and show Grandma!

Anyway, his dr. called me today with the results they already got back and apparently everything is perfect and fine (his CBC, his immunities, etc.)...so the dr. doesn't think he has a problem. So we'll see. We'll just see how he does and keep an eye on him and then if anything else weird happens I guess we'll go from there! I'm glad he is okay though (as far as we know)!

Don't worry, he'll be fine. Some kids are really just smaller than others. My oldest was the scrawniest little thing. My grandma would accuse me of not feeding him.

And Sam is such a brave little boy.
And it is crazy how different your little boys look! They are both darling!

Jennie! I realized I never wrote you a congratulations on your new baby!!! Ryan and I both think that he looks like Sam (except tanner :) haha). I hope you're adjusting alright. I can't imagine having another one right now.
