15 Month Well Visit...

Today was Nathan's 15 month well visit with Dr. Terry. Nathan weighed in at 25.11 lbs. up from 20.9 lbs. three months ago, at his 12 month visit. We are so thankful for his NG tube allowing us to give him these precious calories! It's working and it's wonderful! He was 32 inches tall today, up from 30 inches at his last visit! Two inches taller in three months is pretty impressive! He's going to be one tall boy! Dr. Terry said he was pleased with Nathan's growth and developmental progress! It is so wonderful to know that this EE is not affecting Nathan's development in any way. Dr. Terry said that he thinks Nathan is one of the happiest, most social kids he's seen! That makes me a proud mama to hear! I know Nathan is an awesome kid, but to hear it from other people makes me smile too!

Checking out the fish before seeing the doctor:


  1. Go Nathan! That is some remarkable growing!!

  2. Isn't it though!? I am going to talk to Dr. Williams about possibly adjusting his oz./day that we give him of his EleCare. We worked really hard to get him to gain, but I don't think that 5 lbs. every three months is a good idea for a long time. We are happy he is gaining and growing, but we don't want to take it to the extreme. :o)

  3. I am so happy for your family and your son. My son was Failure to Thrive from 6 months till over 16 months. It was amazing to actually see your child start to actually gain some weight.

  4. Great growing, Nathan! I hope everything goes perfectly with the upcoming procedures.
