Our OT appointment this morning went well. I’m proud to announce my peanut is now “officially” over the 20 pound mark at a whopping 20.2 pounds.
I love Hasbro Children’s Hospital. There was a gentleman playing a guitar with several instruments our for the kids, forming an impromptu band concert. The kids were having a blast, unfortunately Jackson didn’t get brave enough to go over until his name was called for his appointment.
The appointment was shorter this time and concentrated on Jackson’s eating and coordination, including his oral “efficiency.” He is on the lower end of normal for muscle tone/coordination so she gave me some exercises to do with him. Bean bags for the 18 month version of an overhead press and an electric toothbrush to increase his oral awareness. I’m grateful for Amazon Prime, because his bean bags will be here Wednesday instead of me hunting for them across the state.
I feel better after the appointment, especially seeing he gained some weight. I felthe was eating much less these past two weeks, but all the extra fat we’ve been putting in his drinks must be making a difference. Thank goodness for Pediasure, Carnation Instant Breakfast and heavy cream!
He goes to his regular pediatrician on Wednesday and I’m eager to hear what she has to say. Thanks for all the kind words on my previous posts, I really appreciate the support!
