Re: Introducing Carly

She's cute.

Re: Catch up Growth?

I really don't have much time during the week for message boards, so this is all I'm going to be able to post concerning this. I'm not an internet bully, and I never said you were abusing your child....

Re: Catch up Growth?

I didn't assume anything. I'm not "just jumping in". I joined Just Mommies over two years ago because of this board. It has never had much action until Days Fan showed up. Wonder why that is? Just...

Re: Catch up Growth?

Sorry. I'm trying to understand what you are referencing. I think it has to do with my saying that she is allowing other people to answer for her. Am I right?

Re: Catch up Growth?

So at birth she was about the 10th percentile and now she's in the 3rd, but she's no longer FTT?
Why not just give the supplements a try? This seems like such an easy solution. It won't hurt her at...

Re: Catch up Growth?

I really don't want to come across as rude. That's not my intention at all, but I'm kind of concerned. Can I ask why you are not following the Dr's orders? I'm not sure what Carley weighed when she...

We've slowed down a lot now that we've gotten her "stabilized". She down to yearly or every 6 months on all but Endo and GI. I'm enjoying the peace although it probably won't last. You are so right...

Yes. Even though Texas is mild compared to Ohio and Tennessee, I'm originally from Florida. So I am so ready for some blue skies and sunshine.
