Quick update for anyone who remembers us (Kmom)
HI! My guy is doing great with the AR. I have heard him reflux here and there but it doesn't faze him. He is talking like a pro and growing like a weed. He isn't as gargantuan as I thought he'd be when he was 6 months old and talllllll and biggggg. He is 96th for weight and 89th for height. I think they'd prefer it to flip flop but he is very healthy and I am sure that the 3 inches he has grown since July is about to be followed up by a couple more.

Recently had another allergy test and he reacted to the peanuts and eggs big time. He didn't react to the flu shot (egg) test so he got to have his first ever. Doc wants a RAST again so she can compare numbers from last year. I am not a doctor but judging by the skin test, the blood test will show bad numbers. I have been religious about keeping these things out of his diet but I guess that just isn't enough. Thankfully nothing has happened that Benadryl hasn't been able to take care of.

I hope everyone has a good Halloween!

Kmom who? J/k...It's good to hear from you! Sounds like he's still a good size fella :) Hopefully he won't surprise you with any new allergies on the RAST test.

Keep us updated. Hugs!

Thanks all! I guess LM is big now that I read your posts, lol. Maybe the NBA will still happen. Although he always wants to watch "hockey ball" on tv. I like his teeth though so I plan to discourage this career path ;)
I lurk and will post again when I can. I am thinking of you all.
Check with your
doctor first!
