Nate's Checkup

Went rather well :) He weighed 21.4 lbs and was 28 inches long. (I guess, she had a pretty hard time getting him to sit still and straighten out his leg! He kept trying to roll away!). He's in the 25th percentile for length, and the 60th percentile for weight. It's definitely a change going from JRay, who has always been off the charts for everything, to one who's actually in the low brackets! I guess we're gonna have us a lil shorty on our hands :) It was bound to happen sooner or later with all the shorties in our families! He's still the most handsome baby ever though :) And JRay the most handsome boy ever! I'm so blessed to have such handsome fellas in my life! It's funny how often I hear how much he looks like JRay, because to me he looks just like PJ. I mean, yeah, JRay actually favors PJ a good bit, even though he's not his dad, but in that sense I think JRay favors me more than Rob. *shrugs* crazy, isn't it? So yeah, my lil 10lb "sack of taters" as Papa so lovingly named him is actually not so big anymore! Doesn't matter, they'll both always be my lil babies! I talked to Dr. Hull about JRay and what's been going on with him, and we're going to up his Adderall dosage next time we refill. I hate doing that, but he really does need it I guess. He's really struggling lately, and I know it's not for lack of trying. Even at home when I have him doing extra work, he's working SO HARD and still missing A LOT of the questions, and it breaks his heart when I tell him how much he missed. He understands it, he's just missing so many things that he SHOULD be seeing. Punctuation, capitalization, etc. Things that he understands, he just misses them in the sentence. I honestly thought that maybe we were wrong with his ADHD diagnosis, but now I believe that's not so. I can see that the older he gets the more prevalent it appears.

Have to go run make some Avon deliveries now! I'll get to those pics tomorrow hopefully! It's snowing today! WOW! I don't recall EVER having this much snow in Bama... not since the couple of snowstorms we had back in the 80's, anyway!

My Crazy Life

My photo
I am a Christian wife and homeschooling mom of two precious boys. I enjoy photography and spending time with my family, along with any other hobby I can manage to dig my nails into. I'm married to PJ, God's precious gift to me ;) I'm honest, passionate, and find myself falling deeper and deeper in love with my Creator each and every day that passes. I was diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic at the age of 10. I chose not to care about my health then, and am paying the price now with multiple complications including kidney damage and neuropathy. I currently reside in Florida, where God led my family in February of 2011, but my heart is, and will forever be, in Alabama.
