10 1/2 months

Here it is in a nutshell...

I know it has been awhile since I last posted. Life has been pretty hectic here as most of you know! Aidan is now 10 1/2 months old. The last couple months have been a little rough. We knew something was wrong with Aidan's stomach since he had very prolonged diarrhea, loss of weight, and he'd stopped eating. His doctor referred him to a GI and after our initial consultation he had him tested for cystic fibrosis (which luckily he doesn't have) and to have an endoscopy of his stomach and large intestine. It turns out he has allergic colitis and cannot have dairy, eggs, soy, wheat, or nuts. He is currently on a hypoallergenic formula for milk protein allergies and is doing much better. He currently weighs about 20 1/2 lbs which is a big improvement and at his 9 month appt he was about 30 inches. Eating is still an issue as we are limited in what we can feed him and what finger foods are available for him to eat, but he's a trooper and we're making progress.

Aidan also got his very first tooth about 2 weeks ago, and just got his second last week. He's been quite fussy the past two days and not sleeping again (like this kiddo has slept through the night since about 4 months anyway) so I have a feeling we might be getting another. Speaking of fussiness someone is whining up a storm, so I will have to post pics later.
