To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Sweet Babies Healthy Babies

With five kids we have to phase them in at the doctor's is was Emily and Claire's turn to meet Dr. Mahaffey. (Sam tried to convince us this morning that his muscles were gone and he was out of health and needed to go but we made him stay home:-) Both girls are in great health...
Baby Claire is super baby weighing in at 20 lbs (80th percentile for her age) and is 30 inches long...(putting her in the 120th percentile for height!)
Our Emily is weighing in at 54 lbs (50th percentile) and is 51 inches tall (80th percentile in height.) Emily does have a heart murmur so we will be going to have an ultrasound in the near future although Dr. M doesn't think it is anything to worry about. Apparently heart murmurs are pretty common and 90% of the time the only action they call for is an antibiotic when visiting the dentist. Not a big deal...we just told Emily that while she can be quiet around new people and groups her heart obviously is quiet noisy:-)

The above link is for Elijah... squirt.

I'd like to see Claire's on the chart... She'll be busting out of the top of it!
