Big Brain, Big Head, Big Boy!!

For those of you who didn't know, we had to take Taylor in to Emanuel Hospital on Monday morning for a CT scan of his noggin. Our pediatrician wanted us to get Taylor's head scanned because it was growing pretty fast, and wanted to make sure there wasn't any fluid or funny business going on in there.

We were pretty sure things were fine, because Tay's doctor measured my head (Shauna), and told me it was a "pretty big noggin." (Mostly filled with brains, might I add!!) So Taylor was a big, brave boy for us Monday during the CT scan and he made us very proud. The actual scan took only 20 seconds, it was the anesthesia process that took the most time (how else would they keep a wild 11-month old still?!), and after the scan, Taylor took a 5 minute nap and was ready to get the heck out of the hospital! We were told test results would be ready in 48 hours.

Now today we are even more proud of Taylor, because the results of the scan are in and they are NORMAL. Yay!! Now we know that Taylor is just a big boy, in the 95th percentile for both height and weight, weighing in at 26 lbs and measuring a huge 30-1/2 inches long... this boy's brain and head size matches the rest... just plain big!!!

Taylor's "Neffendorf" brain has to have lots of room!
