Oops, I got mom in trouble. When we said goodbye to 3 year old Emiliana last week, I told her she could come play with Spencer another time. Well, yesterday she walked across the street to come and visit, and was crushed to find out that he was gone! Mom had to explain that he was not there, but would be back next month and she could play with him then.

Great Grandma Evelyn thought that young Spencer would enjoy this. I was quite surprised when I opened the box yesterday.

I also had occassion to talk with Amy back in NY yesterday. Unfortunately, it turns out that young Zachary came down with some form of coxsackievirus and she wanted to give us the heads up. Spencer already had a scheduled appointment this morning for his six-month well-baby visit, and the doctor said there was no need to pull him out of school at this time just because he was exposed. (Whew.) I guess Spencer must have had a wet diaper when he was weighed quickly the other week because today his naked weight was 19 pounds and 9 ounces (75th%) and he measured 27 1/2 inches in length (85th%.) We were also lucky enough to be there on a day when the office had some pneumococcal vaccine, so Spencer has received two rounds and is done. Can you believe that they have now revised their recommendation from four doses to two because this vaccine is in constant shortage?
