1) Happy Veteran's Day! To all my favorite veterans out there (and my second favorite, too!), thank you for your service to our country, to my family, to my freedoms. This would be a very different country without your sacrifices! Love you, Dad!
2) Elsie had her 6-month appointment today. Here's the stats:
Weight: 16 pounds, 14 ounces
Height: 26.5 inches long
Head: 18 inches
And to put it in perspective, these were her birth statistics:
Weight: 8 pounds, 1 ounce
Height: 21 inches
Head: 15 inches
All is going well. We talked to the doctor about solid foods and about a red mark on Elsie's abdomen that is raised and growing--called a strawberry-something-or-other. Sara (the pediatrician) says it will grow for a while long and then will shrink back down and disappear. "Should be" no problem.
The day off was a great time to spend together as a family.
Today's date: 11/11
Elsie's appt. time: 10 o'clock (but we didn't get seen until 11)
The nursery pager number at church tonight: #11
