premature closing of the cranial sutures?? that's very dangerous. ugh. i hope it doesn't happen too quickly. there's still a fontanelle between the frontal and the parietals that i can definitely feel. trying to feel for the one in back. that one can be closed up by 18 weeks, though he's 9 weeks now.
his eyes aren't bulging. he doesn't seem irritable / nervous. and he definitely doesn't have slowed growth.
what's weird is how husband and i both kept forgetting to give him his synthroid over the past week. we have a reminder calendar on the fridge and everything, and it seemed unlikely that *both* of us would forget, and we did. more than once. i joked (not actually funny) that maybe it's because we knew he didn't need it anymore. could be intuition.
he went through a growth spurt at about the normal time. my goodness, he's bigger than some of these babies out there. then again, he started out bigger and was already bigger before he started the synthroid. but he's dense and buff, not extremely fat, just normal good baby chubbiness. and he's happy!
