|Liam and his new favorite toy...his golf set! Daddy has been teaching him early!|
We decided to splurge this year and buy a season pass to our local waterpark. Since the heat and Liam don't mix very well, I still wanted a way to be outside, but that would be a cool way to do that here in the hot Texas heat. And since Liam is free until he turns 2 and I'm home now, I thought this would be the perfect summer to go. Plus, it's literally about a quarter mile from the house, so no high gas prices for us!
We met with the dietitian yesterday and she was amazed at how well Liam is doing and VERY surprised that we had already weaned him off the tube feedings. He weighed in at 24.2 lbs, which is great and means he hasn't lost any weight. Our plan is to continue what we are doing and try to work in some more whole grain and fiber to his diet. Liam has never liked grain or carbs too much, but she gave me some things to try. Since we have cardiology at the end of the month (with weight check), the dietitian will return in two months. And the feeding pump, well I'm happy to say it's been collecting dust in the corner of our office awaiting pick up....YAY! I couldn't be happier to see that thing disappear! We have been tremendously blessed that the feeding has gone so well. Usually, this kind of thing takes awhile as kids adjust to normal eating/drinking cycles and struggle with aversions. We are very fortunate and I thank God for this blessing. Liam is truly a little miracle, in every way!
