We’ve grown! and grown again!

Matthew was finally prescribed growth hormone replacement therapy at the last endocrinologist appointment.  That was the beginning of July.  Since he was prescribed the same brand as Meagan, and I had a bunch of extra vials in the fridge, I went ahead and got him started then even though we didn’t (and still don’t!) have a shipment of meds in his name.

He’s been to the pediatrician 3 times in the last 3wks, but I never caught the height until today. He was 51″ at the endo visit.  He was 51.5″ today. =)  He had measured himself on a doorframe the day he started and again about a week ago.  He was so excited when he saw a visible difference! He measured the gap and discovered he’d grown half an inch.  Today that was confirmed.

Also… our family has grown yet again.  The pets are now 5.  Samson, Delilah, Rachel (da bunny), Gracie (the starved, but looking much plumper and very healthy now,  stray found on our porch), and Freckles… a kitten found by a neighbor girl when she was visiting her mother in a neighboring town and brought back here… and then immediately to our door.

Freckles -so named because of the splotches of color on her back-  is mostly white with a little ginger… her ‘freckles’ and then ginger tabby stripes on her head and tail. Very playful, very affectionate, very sweet.  NOT starved, no poopy problems to deal with like with Gracie.  Just an abandoned (or stray) kitten about 12wks old.

So there’s our growth report. lol

Mike says we are to grow (in #) no more!  Thing is he said “no more kitties”. He didn’t say anything about fish… Shhh! hehe  ;-)

Actually, I thought we had stopped adding kitties when we got the twins back in December. Then Gracie showed up desperately needing help. And now there’s Freckles needing a momma. I love kitties, but I do have to agree with Mike and say I hope no more needy ones present themselves to us. I’d have to turn it down, but it’d break my heart having to do it.
