Nicholas turned 1 on Sunday. It is so hard to believe a year has already gone by and wow, what a year it has been for him. Grandma and Grandpa Matthews came over to celebrate. We got him a smash cake but he wasn't too interested in it. Mark put his hands in it then he sucked his thumb so he kind of ate some. Mark also fed him some frosting. He did not enjoy his hat or opening presents. I think he was over stimulated and tired. He sure was spoiled for his birthday, just wait for Christmas.
He had his 1 year check up at the pediatrician today. Everything is good. He is 16 lb. 12 oz and 26 inches. He is still pretty small but that is ok and he will catch up. His doctor said we can start giving him regular food that we smash up. We'll see, I'm going to stick with baby food for now. She also wants to keep him on formula until he is 15 months. He got 4 shots today and his Synagis shot last Friday. Poor guy has been through a lot these past few weeks. We are skipping PT and OT this week, which I'm sure he won't mind, but will be back at it next week. We have an appointment at MUSC with the surgeon for his cochlear implant and the audiologist on Thursday.
He also had his first tooth on the bottom pop through. The second one isn't far behind and one on the top is close too.
