{eating cake}



havey had her 12-month check-up yesterday:

length: 31.5 inches, 98%tile
weight: 20 pounds, 43%tile

she's as tall as an 18-month old, which explains why all her bottoms are so short. good thing it's summer!

and at that check-up nash said to the doctor, "how doin?" to which the doctor replied (to me) "does he always sound like that?"

long story short, we went back to the doctor later for nash's very own check-up. he ran laps around the office to trigger the coughing that usually follows. the doctor is pretty convinced that nash's seal voice isn't his real voice but is triggered by either acid reflux, a vocal chord weakness, or asthma. i wasn't sold on any of this until the doctor asked me if nash wakes up in the night. (he does-in fits of terror and usually coughing.) so, mr. nash is now back on prevacid and has started an inhaler twice a day. although i'm glad any problems he might have will be remedied, i'm sad that he won't bark like a seal anymore....

That's crazy about Nash. You'll have to keep us updated on what the doctors figure out.
I can't believe how little Haven weighs, especially for being so tall. She is so adorable!

Man, I love those two. They get cuter by the day! I'm glad Nashy has his medicine now and that he likes it!

So the doctor didn't even first say, "How cute of him to ask so politely about my day."? I would have. "How doin'?" is just way too cute.

That picture of Haven is so cute. I can't believe she is one and so tall!

Sad about Mashy Bay. I will sorely miss his seal bark but happy he will be healthy and hopefully sleep better for you!
