I have a weight problem...

Not me....MY KIDS! For a while now the kids have been inching closer and closer to ALL weighing the same. You heard me right...our three kids, ages SIX, THREE, and EIGHTEEN MONTHS weigh almost the SAME! hahaha I can't believe it! I thought about waiting to see if we could get the scale to say the exact same weight for all of them, but I couldn't wait any longer to blog about it. Not sure if that will ever happen, but I'll let ya know if it does!

Here are their stats: Jordyn 6 yrs. old - 32 lbs.

Evan 3 yrs. old- 33 lbs.

Carter 18 mo. - 30 lbs.

So, Jordyn is WAY under weight because of her reflux condition (eosinophilic esophogitis). We are actually working on setting up appointments to take Jordyn to Denver to see a specialist for her condition. They put on a clinic for her exact condition and you see a GI doctor, allergist, nutritionist, and a few other doctors all at once. Right now they are evaluating her records to see what they want to do for testing, etc. It might be a few more months before we get to go. We are hoping they can at least help us find something to IMPROVE the throwing up. They have not found a cure for this disease yet, so it's basically trying to find a treatment that works the best. I feel like we have tried everything in the past year(besides a feeding tube - I pray we never have to go there) and nothing has helped.

Evan. Can't say much about him...I think he's pretty average for his age.

Now Carter.....oh boy! I have never seen an 18mo. old so OBSESSED with food! He is hilarious! People will pick him up and say,"WOAH! He is HEAVY!" The last week, Tom and I have been talking about being a little more strict with his diet!

mmmmmm, good food
Jordyn's pigtails are BACK! After going through a rough patch of behavior problems and pulling a ton of hair out....it finally grew back! Love the pigtails!

Carter checking out Jordyn's belly button. He will randomly walk up and kiss or tickle Jordyn now. It's cute.

My new helper. I love how he opens his mouth when Jordyn is supposed to open hers!

Woah... big bite!

That is so funny. I bet it is great that your other kids are getting old enough to help with Jordyn. Her hair is darling in pigtails. Let us know what happens after you get to see the doctors in Denver.

That is too funny. I am sure it will all even out in the end. Let us know if they ever get exactly the same.l

I love that Ethan is helping Jordyn, that is so adorable! My Ethan is a little younger that Jordyn and doesn't weight too much more than her and he doesn't have a disorder, just the "I never want to eat" disorder. I hope that they can help Jordyn down in denver.
