Jared's Dr appointment

Jared didn't get his shots at his 6 month appointment because of the double ear infection and bronchitis. I forgot to ask about him being cross eyed at the last appointment as well, but since I had one today I remembered to ask.

So Jared had both his shots and did quite well. His length 66cm (I think) but 2 weeks ago he was 2 cm longer LOL so I guess it just shows how hard it can be to measure a baby and weight I think was 7.6kg (writing this here so I can look back when I scrapbook it LOL)

I asked about my cross eyed little guy and he does use it a little but needs to see an opthamologist. This definitely means NO switching to part time for me....we definitely will need my benefits. So they are sending a referral to the opthamologist and I will hopefully hear back soon.

I must have missed it when you mentioned him being cross-eyed - that sucks, it's got to cause a lot of extra worry for you. Did the doc say if it was common or not?
At least with the shots you can give him Tylenol tonight - maybe then he'll sleep well for you. ;)

Lots of babies are cross-eyed but out grow it - Cailyn was cross-eyed and outgrew it - I knew Jared was a little too cross-eyed so that's why I asked. He doesn't use his right eye very much.

yes its very hard to measure babies. especially when they are bigger, they squirm more.
hopefully the crosseyed stuff works itself out.

Oh, I know. Gabe was cross-eyes for the first few months - hence my understanding of the worry. ;) I hope you get an appointment at the ophthalmologist's soon.

I am glad that he is getting that eye checked out. Hopefully it will not be anything to serious. Could possibly be a "lazy eye" as they so call it? Not sure though. Hopefully you will get in to see the opthamologist soon!
