The girls will be 19 months in two days. They are a mess! We took them to the pediatrician on Thursday and Jordan weighed 22 pounds and was 29 1/2 inches with her clothes, wet diaper, and shoes on. Rylee weighed 21 pounds and was 29 1/2 inches as well. We have really been trying to get them to eat good and it feels like we are constantly shoving something into their mouth or belly. Rylee is still only taking a few ounces of her thickened liquids by mouth and seems to be more interested in it. Jordan has really started liking her bottles just when we need to start weaning. She won't drink her milk from the sippy cup so we need her to work on this. They haven't had much of a growth in their height during these past few months but the doctor didn't seem too worried. We don't have to go back for a check up for six months. They received a couple of their vaccinations and will hopefully qualify for synagis (RSV) vaccinations this fall and we will just take them in monthly for those. The doctor was impressed with how well Rylee was doing without her trach. I took Rylee to CMH on Friday for her ENT appointment and all is well with her. The doctor was a little worried as she sounded congested and she thought it was wheezing at first. The girls have had some runny noses since Wednesday and we are thinking it is allergy related. The doctor still tells me they can't get allergies until the are 4 years old. We have been giving them some nasonex since Thursday and that seems to help. We had our caseworker that monitors our nursing hours here on Friday and we are done with nursing as of August. We are very sad to see our nurses leave as they have been with us since the beginning. We will be so glad to not have to deal with our nursing agency. We are appointment free until the end of the month and the girls will get their eyes checked and Jordan has to get another hearing test. I will post pictures later this afternoon.
