Doctor updates

I took David back to the doctor for the follow-up. He weighs now 13lbs. 15.5oz, which means that he gained 1lbs. 1.5oz. in one month! He got his booster flu shot (babies receiving the flu shot for the first time need a booster after one month) and then got his finger pricked to test for anemia. The doctor found that his hemoglobin count was a little low, so they drew blood (which made David mad) and we should get the results soon. I'll keep you posted. Otherwise he is doing great. During Thanksgiving he had roseola (a little fever and a red rash), but he is fine now.

The Morton Arboretum

We spent last Sunday at the Morton Arboretum, a park a few miles west of Oak Park. Even though we spent about five hours there, we probably saw a fifth of it. It was great. We caught the Fall colors, played in the hedge maze, and visited a house made of twigs and branches. We are going back in the Spring... with bicycles. Enjoy the pix and the video.
