4 Years Old

Things have been crazy around here so I have not been able to get a minute to make any posts. I am going to try and make a few to catch up with what we have been doing.

The boys turned 4 on August 5 and I just can't believe it! They have grown up so fast. It seems like every time we look at them they just look so grown up all of a sudden. Today they had their 4 year pediatrician appointment. We talked about development, vaccines (Zak got 3), and current concerns.

Zak weighed 32 pounds (15%) and is 39 inches tall (20%). He did good with all of the development questions which I knew he would. We are increasing his Flovent inhaler to 2 puffs twice a day in hopes of preventing a lot of lung issues once school starts. He did great for his vaccines today, but tonight his arms are sore.

Ryder weighed 31 pounds (9%) and is 40 inches tall (41%). He did pretty good with the development stuff, but not as well as Zak which I figured would happen. We discussed some recent concerns about regression and behavior issues. Our pediatrician is also a developmental pediatrician so he knows most of Ryder's specialists and is very helpful since he understands everything that is going on (more so than the average pediatrician would). Ryder didn't get any vaccines since he is not supposed to because of his CVID. I will make another post discussing everything that is going on with Ryder recently.

Both boys will have to go back for a flu shot. We normally don't do them, but the Immunologist has asked us to get them for both boys so we will. The pediatrician only had the FluMist which neither of the boys can get so we need to wait for the shot to come in.
