11 Month Update + Diagnosis

dax11mos1

Weight: 23 pounds 13 ounces

Height: 31 inches

Sleep: Sleeping mostly through the night. Dax’s new normal is waking up to nurse at 4 am. Once he nurses he is right back to sleep until about 5:30-6.

Clothes: He is currently wearing 18 month clothes! His 12 month cloths really don’t fit any more and he is growing like a weed! He also wear size 6 shoes.

Baby Gear loves: PACI, sippy cups, zipadee zip.

I’m sure I have talked about this before but he just loves his zipadee zip! When we go to zip him up at night he just gets so excited. I love it.

Dax’s favorites: Playing outside, sitting in the boat, going on walks, doing ANYTHING pops is doing.

His favorite thing to do right now is to go on a tour of the man room wearing his cowboy hat and look at the animals and pictures with pops. This just melts my heart.

Dax’s dislikes: HOSPITAL STAYS, getting his blood drawn, being told no, long sleeved shirts.

Milestones: WALKING! We have a walker! (technically he’s been a walker since the day he was born.. not to brag or anything..) He can really walk, however he is still sometimes a big chicken. He took his first steps in attempt to share something with pops. He is also starting to feed himself without me having to tear up ALL his food. Dax is also starting to say new words and sounds! We had a “snow” day this month! It was so crazy! The roads were fine so we both went to school and then around 7:30 it got bad. Fast. We also had our first Valentines Day as a family! Dax loved his Valentines day pictures….

Words Dax says a lot:

Momma, more, milk,  buck.

11 months and this momma is just dying. I can not believe it has almost been 1 whole year of being this boys momma. Time needs to slow down. I can not wait to see the man you become one day, but I also want you to stay little forever. We love you sweet boy!

Diagnosis:

Now for the part that some of you are really here for.

About a week ago Dax’s doctor called. He had talked to the Hematologist- Oncologist at Cooks about Dax’s case. That doctor said they strongly believed that Dax has Cytomegalovirus. (He did test positive for this.) Dax just had a really weird presentation and case of this virus! 1 in 3 adults has this virus and doesn’t even know it. There is no treatment for this virus and it is a virus he will have for the rest of his life. However this does not mean that he is constantly contagious.
