I think I'm just having a day where I wish my pregnancy had been different and Michael not a preemie/IUGR baby.
At his 18 mos check up today he weighs 18.6 lbs and 30 inches long. The pedi mentioned doing a monthly weight check and said he's not worried or overly concerned but just wants to watch the trend to see if he stays steady, has any dips, etc.
Michael's overall health is very good, we are dealing with some speech/hearing issues, but he is fully walking now, babbling, eats very well and a variety of things, plays well, good hand/eye and dexterity. He is VERY active. I'm just bothered a bit today...like "here we go again with more stuff" and I feel like at any drs appts I'm very much on the defense now.
Michael is a happy funny kid...I just feel alone sometimes with this stuff and can't help but worry sometimes.
