Two Today and Stats

Happy Birthday Elijah!

Tonight, at 10:58 pm, Elijah will have been on this earth for officially two years. We love you little dude!

Stats for those of you who care about such things:
Last night, we had Elijah's 2-year check-up with his pediatrician and I wanted to fill you all in on Elijah's stats. It's official: Elijah is tall. He is three feet! What? Yes, THREE feet. That seems huge to me and it is...that puts him at the 88th percentile for height (no wonder I have random people tell me he's tall). He's also getting chubbier and now weighs in at 25 lbs. 6 oz., which puts him at the 18th percentile - that's an improvement folks! Head circumference? Do I have to report that? Elijah's head is still growing, still slowly, still not on the charts (nor will it ever be unless God grants us a miracle). But, he's growing and progressing. Our doc said not to look at those numbers, but rather what Elijah is doing - which is a lot!

Thanks for reading about Elijah (and supporting us) over these pasts two years. I don't know where we'd all be without your prayers and support. I don't know much but I do know this: We have an awesome Father, wonderful family and friends (some of you that we've never even met in real life), and one really awesome TWO year old! Thanks everybody. We love you. (So milestones make me sentimental. So What?).

Happy Second Birthday Little Dude!!!!
