15 months old

Joey turned 15 months old on the 8th.  


Weight: 21 pounds 12 oz (only 1 pound gained since his 12 month apt which dropped him to about the 5% (from the 25%))

Height: 29 3/4 inches- grew 1.25 inches in 3 months which dropped him from the 25% to the 10% for height.

His head is still in the 95% but she isn't too worried since its grown about the same rate since birth. 

Even with the g-tube we can't get him to gain enough weight.  I have to reconfigure his g-tube feeds and how much he is drinking by mouth.   Apparently not enough.

He is still cruising around furniture and isn't ready to let go and walk on his own yet.  His new word/phrase of the month is 'my butt' :-)   He is defiantly ALL boy! 

His skin is doing ok as along as we keep wrapping him!  We tried not wrapping and it was a mess.  Took over a week for all the new  (HUGE) blisters to heal.  So back to wrapping it is.  Less for him to itch I suppose. 

He loves to be outside all the time which isn't great when you live in hot climate and have EB.  He loves to eat  (small amount) of just about anything but still has a BIG sweet tooth:)

I haven't been able to get many pictures of him lately but here is one of him eating pizza!
