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)
Head circumference: 49 cm (91st 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)
