Weigh-Day for Wing Nut

Tonight was Wing Nut’s weigh-in. He has been doing very well on the periactin and gained several pounds right away and continued to gain for several weeks. He eats non-stop all day long. My kitchen is suddenly like an all you can eat buffet, except I am the one doing all the cooking and cleaning the kitchen. He has actually gotten really good at helping himself to food when he is hungry. He has already gone through 2 pounds of carrots and 2 bunches of celery, and more apples than I can count. Cinnamon toast, string cheese, popcorn, cheez-its, fruit bars, bowls and bowls of shredded wheat cereal, anything that he can walk into the kitchen and quickly grab and fix for himself as a snack, he eats. Then there are all of the meals that I cook for him.

This week I am surprised that when I weight him that he did not gain any weight. He weights exactly what he weighed last Wednesday, 53 pounds. We were all kind of bummed, especially since he eats so darn much these days. After he went to bed I thought to measure him to see how tall he is. In the past he has gone through phases when he eats and eats and I think he is gaining weight, but he just gets taller. So now I am wondering if he has gone through a grow spurt recently. And I literally just remembered that last night he woke up in the middle of the night whimpering that he couldn’t get comfortable and that his body hurt inside his bones and muscles. Which I am now thinking was most likely growing pains. Poor kid was fidgeting and wiggling around in his bed and was so miserable. I had to sit on his bed and rub his legs and head to get him to calm down. I guess I will have to measure him tomorrow!

    YEA! That is wonderful! The growing part not the painful fidgeting… I’m so happy to hear he has a good appetite 🙂
