Remember me? I'm the person who used to update this blog.
I've had a case of nothing to write about lately and now I have a mutant cold/flu thing.

We had the appointment with the head doctor last week to talk about a helment for Nolan's flathead. In flathead world, they go by adjusted age. They like to correct the flatheads between 4-7 months. Nolan is only 3 1/2 months adjusted. (That was the first time anyone referred to him by his adjusted age.) We go back in 6 weeks to see if his head is any better. The dr said about 50% of flatheads correct themselves (but, I've learned that stats are meaningless).

We started feeding him cereal a couple of weeks ago. He's catching on to it.

Giant Nolan is now wearing 6-9 month clothes. I look at him and wonder what happened to tiny 5 lb Nolan. Then, I realize I know what happened: Giant Nolan ate him.

I have pictures for you, but like I said I have some type mutant cold/flu thing so I'm going back to the couch (and my tissues and my cold medicine and my water and my cookies).

He was only 5 weeks early right? And 37 weeks is considered fullterm. Weird that they're adjusting his age! Oh well, hopefully the head thing will correct itself and your little, excuse me, HUGE guy won't have to wear a helmet. He's in 6-9 months already?! That's a healthy boy!

Yes, he was only 5 weeks early (which in early-world is barely even early enough to call early). I thought it was so weird when the dr said "since he's just 3 1/2 months adjusted..."

He is supper huge for a 3 1/2 month old! ;)
