He was really excited. He never goes to the doctor.
In fact, he has only been to the doctor twice in the past three years. He never gets sick.
He had a full CBC blood draw, urinalysis, and physical exam. Everything was perfect! He weighed in at 40.6 lbs and he now measures 43 inches tall. He has also never eaten meat in his life, he eats very little processed food, and consumes organic dairy and eggs several times a week.
For more about Matthew's diet, here are a few WIAW posts I wrote about what he eats:

Now, what I ate:
I started my day with organic basmati brown rice with coconut milk, raisins, ground flaxseed, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
For lunch, I ate a simple salad with some lettuce from my friend's garden, topped with a few sweetened dried cranberries and a dressing I made with Dijon mustard, rice vinegar, and a little honey from a local beekeeper. I also ate an Annie Chun's Udon noodle soup bowl.
Late in the afternoon, I made sweet cherry "ice cream" since it was 96F outside today. I used a bag of frozen sweet cherries and 3/4 a cup of Silk original almond milk, then blended it in my Vitamix.
For our supper, I made Spicy Quinoa with Black Beans and Veggies. I used mine to top my salad. Check back for my recipe!
I ate all of this for 1300 calories and over 30 grams of fiber.
