Well Babies

Watson and Crick had their “6 month” well visit today.  At the age of seven months and two weeks, but who’s counting?  (Considering they’re gestationally around a week shy of 6 months, I guess it all works out.)

Chloe:

Normal head sono from a few weeks ago.  (Good, can go back to joking about her LAARge CRAAAnium in superhero voice.)

Now allergic to amoxicillin.

25″, 12 lbs 13 oz, 45.5 cm head.

Small downstairs problem (l@bial  adhesions), plan of care TBD.

Emma:

Normal, normal, normal, but with similarly massive cranium. 

25″, 13 lbs 11 oz (girl can eat, yo), 45 cm head.

They’re tracking at about 6.5 months developmentally, which is fine (would get more points if they 1) could sit independently, or 2) could feed self a cracker/cookie (no opportunity = unable, totally unfair imho as they do pacifiers, spoons and toys with ease) or 3) could “rake” a small object like a raisin (Again, no opportunity – can we say choking hazard?  Who lets their infant play with buttons and marbles?  Other than the patient clientele of the House of God, obviously.)  Anyhoodle, they’re fine on development, each had three shots and oral rotavirus (don’t lecture, folks, rota’s nasty shit, no pun intended.)

    I don’t vaccinate against rota, but it is nasy, so no lecutres here (though I strongly suggest anyone else who doesn’t vaccinate against it invest in a really good carpet cleaner (the actual machine, not just the soap) and keep it on standby). Anyhoo, Midge had the adhesion issue, too, around the same age. A little bit of estrogen cream at it was all resolved in just a couple of days or so.

  2. Care Says:

    Normal might just be one of my favorite words. And you won’t hear a peep from me on rota vaccines – 2009 has seen more GI viruses in my kids than I can count – anything that can prevent the nastiest of the GI bugs is a good thing.
