We have been having problems getting weight on Ryan. He has not gained much at all since his 9 month appointment (and he's 13 months old now). He has to go back to the Dr. on Monday to have his weight rechecked, and probably have some more lab work done. They did some labs at his 1 year checkup, and his blood was a little too acidotic. He hates his milk. He is supposed to be drinking 24 oz of milk a day, and I am lucky to get 10-12 down him. He has also turned into a bit of a finicky eater. He used to eat anything and everything, and lately, he just hasn't been interested in eating.
In December (the 20th to be exact) we found out we were expecting baby #2, only to have our hearts shattered a week later. I ended up in the hospital on the morning of the 28th in horrid pain. They determined that the pregnancy was ectopic, and rushed me into emergency surgery. It has been really hard the last 3 weeks dealing with this loss. Hopefully by late this spring though, we can start trying again.
Ryan and Peanut are still the best of friends. They follow each other around and chase each other and snuggle together. I feel so lucky to have the family that I do, but inside it just does not feel complete yet. Hopefully that will change though!!
Here are a few random pictures from the last 7 months for your entertainment. I will try to get some more blogging done with some more pictures soon!!
