Poor Kiddo

So Rylan all of a sudden got sick this weekend with coughing, wheezing, hard time breathing, and runny nose. Took him to the dr today and he is treating Rylan as if he has pneumonia again. So the little guy is on amox for 10 days and nebs for 2 days but if the nebs are helping, then he will be on them for longer. Rylan has wheezing in his chest and upper airway and the dr couldn't distinguish it from one another. The dr didn't do an xray since Rylan has a history of pneumonia, rsv, and lots of wheezing and coughin.
If we have to take him in again for wheezing, he will be put on a med like pulmecort. The poor kiddo can't get a break from being sick. Hope the summer gets here soon!!!
And he was still 30lbs 4oz and his height was just a little over 33" (so those are pretty much the same as at his 15 month checkup).

I have an appt next wed (28th). I'll be 16w2d and hopefully we'll be able to tell on the u/s what we are having. I'm excited. Nathan and I both put the same girls name on our list last week but cannot agree on a boys name at all so I'm thinking we'll be having another boy! :)

15 month update

so rylan had his 15 month checkup on monday. he weighed 30lbs 4oz (still off the charts...hahaha!) and his height was in the 90% and head in 75%. i forgot to ask what both measurements were. but he's doing great overall (and still a big, big boy!).
the dr seemed a little worried that he isn't talking yet. rylan says mamamama and dadadada but he doesn't look at us and say those words so we don't know if he knows what they are or not. but he babbles ALL the time and uses many different consonants so i'm not worried that he hasn't said his first word yet.
and since he's so big and practically running, he gets to move up to the toddler room at daycare on monday. yikes!!! he's not supposed to get so big so fast. but i know it'll be great for him and he'll be picking up new habits and will be talking in no time.
other than that he is a typical boy and 150% energy from sunup to sundown. he loves to climb on anything and everything. he tries to squeeze on the side of the fridge (not sure what he finds fascinating back there). he eats like he's starving and will eat anything he is given. (hopefully that sticks for a long, long while!).
he loves the movie everyone's hero (highly recommended movie!) and tv shows backyardigans, dora, diego, and blue's clues. he loves animals. he loves little people. he loves to read. he is so curious and loves to see what everyone else is doing. we are working on coloring but after a minute or so, he thinks he needs to try to eat it. lol!
he has turned into a mama's boy big time. he will even cry if i leave to go to the bathroom or put laundry in. cute yet annoying. it's nice when nathan is home b/c he can help distract him and give me a break.
