working full time + henry-ing= wow. very busy. i find i have very little time to do things like keep up with the house and finish projects (still working on finishing applications for life insurance, a trust fund for McMonkey and re-financing the house. we started all these months ago. if we finish by the time henry starts kindergarten, i’ll feel accomplished).

and since he’d had some diarrhea and was a little out of sorts that day, i postponed his vaccines. will get them next week when i know he’s 100%.
here are his current stats:
-weight- 15lbs 13oz (75th%)
-height- 25 1/4″ (75%)
-head circumference- 16 1/2″ (50th%)
