Ben, if his runny nose [see below] clears up, has been given the “all clear” for trick-or-treating.  This makes his parents super happy since he isn’t exactly going to be eating the candy he  weasels out of neighbors merits by being so cute.

No.  Really.

Ben sniffles for the doctor

He is, as you might be able to tell, under the weather.  Nothing serious (just the sniffles) so don’t worry.  His peer group is certainly jealous of these numbers:

Height: 33 in.  (94th percentile)

Weight:  23 lb. 3 oz. (30th percentile)

Head circumference: 49 cm (93rd percentile)

The worst part?  He uses that head of his as a weapon.  I had a pretty nasty bruise on my temple after a good-night kiss that didn’t quite go as planned.

Bonus Pru in Rangers gear!

Ben had his well-baby visit for 12 months this morning. He was a total sweetheart to the nurse and, for the first time, allowed her to get a real, honest-to-God measurement of his head. (He was also a total show-off and stood on the adult scale when it was time to get a weight.) Things look good so far – no allergies or illnesses or weird growths – so you won’t hear us complaining.

Still has a big head

Why is the bunny looking at me like that?

Weight: 23 lbs. (50th percentile)
Height: 31.5 in. (89th percentile)

… we’re still waiting for the “made glorious” part.

Doctor's orders

Long eyelashes don't, apparently, protect against the common cold

Ben and Pru (and at least one of their parents) are sick with the winter cold that just won’t die.  It’s not terrible, but it is annoying enough to keep all of us up and to make sleep hard to catch.  (Let me editorialize here and say, “Boooo!”)

This morning, Ben went to the doctor for his 6-month check-up.  All’s well for our boy besides the cold.  Stats for those keeping score:

Weight:  17 lb. 14 oz. (50th percentile)

Length:  28 in. (91st percentile)

Head circumference :  44.5 cm (75th percentile)

New PruTube

There are several new videos up on Prutube.  They document Thanksgiving, Christmas and all the holidays in between (and a few that happen after as well).  We are quite behind in our documentary updates, clearly.   Happy viewing!

Pru had a check up this morning.  Everything went smoothly aside from the measurement-taking and the vaccination-giving.   Fortunately, cookies still work as a ameliorative gesture:

Pictures are nice but we know why you are all here — you want measurements.  Without delay:

Height: 32.0  in (90th percentile)
Weight:  22 lb 14 oz (50th percentile)
Head circumference:   47.5 cm (90th percentile)

We *may* have spent part of the day yesterday (when the ice giant Ymir visited Albany and bedecked the land with a frosty dollop, leaving us trapped inside, huddling together for warmth) unwrapping Christmas presents early.  We did this because (a) it doesn’t make much sense to drag everything down with us to Rhode Island, where we’ll be spending “calendrical Christmas,” just to have to port it back with us; (b) Pru had already partially unwrapped most of the presents, anyway; and (c) I have very poor impulse control.  Photos of our premature Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Saturnalia can be found here.

Doctor, Doctor

A check-up to start her second year?  No problem, Pru says.
