No, I'm not talking about turkey. I'm talking about my little guy. I took him to the doctor today and he weighed in at 15 lbs!! He certainly doesn't have a problem eating! :)
When I was undressing Owen to be weighed I had to change his diaper b/c it was wet. Well the little guy did what boys do and peed all over the place. THREE. DIFFERENT. TIMES. Ady found it to be very very funny.
Anyway. The appointment was pretty typical. Owen is right on track with his milestones and weight and length. I mentioned to the Dr that we were concerned about the mark..line..dent..I don't really know what to call it, on the back of Owens head. Ian and I think it's from the forceps when he was born. So our Dr has set up an appointment with a Physical and Rehabilitation Pediatric specialist to talke to about that dent, I guess, and the flatness at the back of Owen's skull.
I'm in no way worried that he has any developmetal problems b/c of this. It's mainly just cosmetic that I'm worried about at this point. So we'll see. Our dr. said that there are three routes this could take.
1. They could have us move Owen more so that he isn't putting as much pressure on that part of his head.
2. He will be fitted for a helmet to reshape his skull. I've read moms on talk about these and the poor babies have to wear them for 23 hours a day!!
3. This is the most rare and most extreme case. They will call in a plastic surgeon. My jaw hit the floor when he said that! Luckily, he then told me that is really rare.
Well, thats about all. Oh! Ian gets home tomorrow. Ady is really missing him and I'm pretty ready for him to be home too!
