12 month check-up!
Grayson had his 12 month doctor's visit today, and all is well! Weighing in at 19 lbs. 1oz, he is in the fifth percentile for weight, but we aren't too concerned. He is moving and eating way better than he ever has, so we just have a peanut on our hands. As far as height is concerned, he is still taking after Brandon being 28.75 inches tall.
The best part was that today was the first time since December that Grayson did not have fluid in his ears or have an ear infection. However, because of how many ear infections he has had in the last few months, we are still scheduled to see an ENT on April 1st. Tubes may be in the future, but we won't know until we see Dr. L. I am a bit concerned that he isn't hearing as well as he should and that his verbal development might be behind, but hopefully the ENT will help us sort all of that out.
Believe it or not, my favorite part of the visit was when Grayson had to receive his vaccinations. Before you go psycho on me, keep reading. Griffin was so concerned for Grayson, and it was a very proud parenting moment. When they drew blood, Griffin kept saying, "It's okay. It's okay. Mommy and I are right here." Then, when it came time for Grayson to get his shots and he started crying, Griffin started bawling. Really bawling. Then he blubbered out, "I just want to take care of my brother." It was the cutest thing I have seen in a long time. Grayson calmed down first, then Griffin followed a few minutes later. Thankfully we were tear free by the time we left!
All in all, my boys are doing well today!
