DS2's 2 year well check and a happy dance

DS2 has been a tiny kid for quite some time. Between 6 and 9 months old, he dropped from 10th to 3rd percentile for weight. We've battled reflux and dairy issues. At 18 months, he was diagnosed as slightly anemic, but had finally squeaked in just over 10th percentile. Then he had roundworm. Yes, he's the kid from the worm thread! At his appointment for that, he was back down to 7th percentile. That was about 2 months ago. This morning, he had his 2 year well check and I'm so stinking excited. He weighed into the 20th percentile! Woo hoo! He also has no signs of anemia and the doctor is not worried about the blue lips/shivering incident from last week. She did say if it happened again to call for an appointment, or to go to the ER if he doesn't warm up quickly, but not to sweat a one time deal. His height is over 30th percentile.

I can't express how happy I am to leave the doctor's office for once without a prescription to fill, a follow up appointment to schedule, or more worries about his weight. He's been off his reflux meds about 4 months and he's going great. He can't do much dairy, but that's workable. We're getting somewhere.

Amazing news!! It is so hard to worry about your kids weight all the time, I was there for 8 months til we figured it out, such a great feeling!
