They were testing for allergies and Celiac disease--all off which came back negative. I think that is good news, but there were some abnormalities in his lymphocyte counts. It is my understanding that this is part of his white blood cells. The Dr. ordered another round of blood work, which results we are still awaiting. I'm not terribly concerned, because he was coming off a sickness when the first test was done. Hopefully, these will come back normal.
He is very, very tall for his age-- so far off the chart. We've had several tall children, but nothing like this. Unfortunately, although he looks so old, he isn't talking at all. He babbles and tries desperately to communicate, but he's really not talking anything understandable. So I have an early intervention speech therapy appointment set for a couple of weeks from now. Once again, our Sweet Pete keeps us on our toes and dispels any idea that we might ever be experts on raising children.This picture was taken on the train at the zoo a couple weeks ago. I am really enjoying Peter's love of animals. Of course almost all little children enjoy animals, but some seem consumed. I remember that Clark made animal sounds well before he said any words. Peter doesn't talk at all, but he does make a snake sound and roars for a dinosaur. It is really fun for me to have another child be so passionate about animals.
