pj's heart is functioning very well! we don't go back for another 6 months!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

he also got his synagis shot today (stings really bad) and doc said he has at least 4-6 teeth coming in. my poor baby boy! he is just miserable today.

he weighed 16:14 at the cardi's office and 17:3 at the pedi's office. i am going with the pedi's since pj was pushing buttons on the scale at the cardi's office. he is 29 1/4 inches long.

That's fantastic news!!! :happyforyou:
From memory heart problems are pretty common in children with Downs, so your PJ is doing amazingly well! Congratulations!

My Tali had an opthamologist appointment on Thursday and he was happy enough with her focussing on things that he decided not to dilate her eyes and we don't have to see him for another 6 months too :D

We want more PJ photos!!

Great news Mlynn and PJ! :jump:

Poor guy with the shot and all those teeth coming in!!! The shot alone is bad enough. Reagan doesn't handle her synagis shot very well.
