YIPEE! WE MADE IT! BLAINE GOT A GOLD STAR! [What I think is just an arbitrary thing that nurse ie grandma barbara invented hehehe].
But still it is something worth shouting to the rooftops: BLAINE MADE IT TO HIS ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY WITH NO DOCTORS VISITS FOR ILLNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just his well visits and that one weight check. I'm probably reallly in for it this next year. EEK! Crossing fingers that the breastmilk magic can continue to keep my babe healthy awhile longer 'cause we all know I'm not super careful with germs. Yes he touches shopping carts and playground toys and dirt and floors and once even a public toilet (EW).
The stats are in:
Height = 29.37 inches = 40 %
Head = 18.35 inches = 60 %
Weight = 18.54 lbs = 3 %
The doctor says the low weight can mean he's either going to be a little guy or he has a disease. However, NO SIGNS ARE POINTING TO A DISEASE AT THIS POINT. So, "keep doing what I'm doing." I didn't get in trouble at all. Phew!
