Apollo {10 Months}

IMG_7529_3695 blog

This was the one and only salvageable photo from Apollo's ten month photo shoot. Don't worry, I plan to reshoot as soon as the rain goes away. If it goes away.

Apollo is weighing in at 16 pounds 8 ounces…he's gained no weight this month.

He went to the doctor this month so we could discuss his loud breathing (which I'm convinced is the cause of his sleep issues). Our doctor sent him for an x-ray (which looked perfect). Our doctor believes the breathing is directly related to his weight gain issues, and we now await an appointment with an Ear, Nose Throat doctor down at Seattle Children's Hospital. 

Apollo is as active as ever. He is now babbling away, something which delights my other children. He says Mama when he sees me, and says "hot" and reaches out his hand when he sees the wood stove or steam. These are his first two official words (since he knows what they mean). 

Apollo's hair is growing and curling. I didn't even notice that I caught his curl in this photo until I put it on my computer. Adorable!

    Apollo looks like he has a disproportionately large neck–could he have sleep apnea? Could you button that dress shirt he’s wearing all the way up? Often that’s a sign that the neck is unusually large and puts pressure on the airway when asleep. My husband is otherwise thin but has an unusually large neck, and it turns out he has fairly bad apnea.

    I commented a few postings ago about my 2 boys that had problems and eventually several surgeries..I forgot to mention that the youngest N.E.V.E.R. slept at all..until after he had the breathing problems fixed (tonsils and adenoids removed and tubes placed in his ears) Now at 19 months he is almost 30lbs and has slept through the night many times and takes a 2 hour nap each day! He is much happier now..and so am I! 🙂

    Most doctors do not check iron levels until 12 months. It sounds like he has some of the some problems my son had at one. We found out his iron was so low that he should have had a blood transfusion. At one my son weighted 18lbs.
