I was CELEBRATING the fact that my Ryley is officially on the calorie knockdown.
My gorgeous WHS child (pictured below) is having his calories cut by 9% because he is a little too tubby.
I am SO PROUD right now!!
Don't forget he is on a high-fat diet (Ketogenic Diet), so he was always going to put on weight. But it is actually music to my ears to not have to worry about him being seen as 'failure to thrive'.
I hate the term 'failure to thrive'. It seems to imply and accuse you of not adequately feeding your child.
Sometimes, just maybe, that child is just meant to be small. Because of his genetic makeup. Not because you aren't feeding him.
And no, I am not bitter at all.
Not much anyway...!
Aside from that, Ryley is busy recovering still. He is still on antibiotics for the umpteenth time. He is exhausted at the end of the day. But generally pretty happy (when he isn't grumpy, or fighting with Braeden).
I am busy finalising things for the conference.
Spring is on it's way.
Spring is here in almost everywhere except Ballarat. I have heard it will arrive this weekend though.
Here are some pics of my boys. Ryley is obviously impressed. Braeden is being Braeden. Don't look at the mess in the background. Or the curtains that need fixing.
