L and N are 12 months old (sort of). Ok, minor detail. I had planned to do this on their due date, but that came and went during Landon’s pneumonia. So here we have the 12th and final installment!
Weight – 21 lbs 3 oz
Food – Landon is currently taking a constant feed via an NJ tube. His rate is 40 ml per hour, roughly 32 ounces per day. A G-tube surgery is planned for early December, and once the dust settles, we plan to get back to working on oral feeds. Even if just for spoon feeding, and a bottle or two per day.
Accomplishments – Coming out of TWO hospital stays! Landon is very vocal now, making coos, ahhs, and growls throughout the day. He had a setback in terms of tone, (as would any of us who were sick for 4 out of 6 weeks) but he will get there!
Likes – Hand rubs, being talked to, and lights.
Other – Wearing 18 month clothes (24 month in hand me downs) and size 4 diapers. Sleeps so peacefully and wakes up smiling!
Weight – 21 pounds!!! (Holy smokes!)
Food – Nolan is still on NG, taking five 6 oz bottles per day. Like Landon, he will have the G-tube soon, and we will also work on getting back to some oral feeding once he is ready.
Accomplishments – Coming out of a hospital stay, more responsive smiles, more alert time.
Likes – Leg massages, tummy rubs and being talked to.
Other – Wearing 18 month clothes and size 4 diapers. Sleeps great!
Moments I don’t want to forget:
- The combined three hospital stays. They are so tough and continue to amaze us.
- Watching Landon’s ambulance lights kick on.
- Introducing them to more family at the reunion.
- Their first birthday party!
- Having so many join in the celebration with the hero challenge.
And now…their 12 month photos!
And let’s not forget how far they’ve come!
