One Year Well Check

Jesse and I took Jackson to his one year well-check last Tuesday.  He is on track with each of his measurements and continues to be between the 25th and 50th percentiles for weight, height, and head circumference.

We ran out of Jackson's reflux medicine a week ago and were waiting to refill it after we spoke to his pediatrician.  Unfortunately, Jackson has begun spitting up a couple of times per day within a mere week off of his medication.  We were hoping we could get a generic prescription since the dissoluble tablets are so expensive.  We were informed that Jack can't have the generic capsules because the capsules aren't available in a small enough dosage and we can't split them. 

His doctor wasn't concerned about any of our responses on the 6-page survey, even though he was marked down for not having distinctive words (besides MaMa and Dada).  It's no surprise that his highest scores were in the "personal/social skills" set.  Jackson is amazing at pushing his arms and legs through his clothes to help dress and undress.  He also conveys quite a range of emotions.

Here is how our ever curious boy passed the time while waiting for his shots:

Jackson had his first Chicken Pox and MMR shots.  The shots had to be administered in different legs, which meant a painful delay time.  Poor Jack wailed and didn't recover until we were in the parking lot. 

Our next appointment is his 15 month check in July.
