My little love bugs had their one year appointment yesterday. It kind of makes it seem more official now. It’s been a year since their arrival into this world and I’ve loved this year.
I promise I will to to start harping on this milestone soon, haha!
All went well at their appointment. They are both right on track
Sloane is almost 21 pounds and Knox is almost 19 pounds. They are both about a pound under what we thought, but right where they need to be. They definitely feel more heavy to us all the time.
They actually measured the same height, but it’s very obvious when they stand next to each other that Sloane is slightly taller.
Knox’s allergy test looked pretty clear. He has an allergy to bananas and a small one to milk, but it’s not too bad. He did a 21 day dose of steroids and his last dose was Saturday. His skin is still looking pretty good so we are hoping it stays that way. The doctors are thinking viruses trigger his skin, but overall he has some allergies and eczema. We are going to be doing a patch test in the near future.
We are going to get off forumla, thank goodness, and start almond milk. I got the okay on that from the Pediatrician and Pediatric Allergist. I had been thinking I really didn’t want to do cow’s milk for a while, and I’ve been debating almond or goat. I’m hoping we can start this next week so still a few days to decide which.
Knox has an appointment for his eye (Ptosis) again in a few months. He does look worse this week, but I think every few months it does because of growth spurts.
At a year:
– crawling super fast
– into everything
– when we say “come on, Knox, let’s walk”…he throws his hands above his head, smiles really big and – throws himself straight forward, falling down.

Brent went with me to their appointment today. Let me tell you, I can’t imagine having been there alone. They were SO busy and ALL over the place.
