Jacob was supposed to get the rest of his 4 month old shots today, but developed quite a stuffy nose during the night. Dr. Wood checked him out and agreed it wouldn't hurt to wait a few day. His temperature was also a little elevated, 99.9. So we'll try again Monday if he's better. We did find out that he weighs 18 pounds and 14 ounces! And he's moved up 10 points to the 85th percentile. Dr. Wood was very happy with how he looked, despite the stuffy nose, and assured me we were not over feeding him. He also commented on how alert and interactive Jacob is. He was full of smiles and giggles while we were there.

On a sad note, my grandmother fell at the country club on her way out to play golf and broke her hip. She broke the top of the femur right off, so they are doing a partial hip replacement at 7:30 tomorrow morning. The doctor said the recovery will be shorter for a partial hip replacement than for the bone to heal with such a significant break. She is a very strong willed woman. Please pray for her recovery.
