well, i just got back from tristan's 4 month appointment and found out that he weighs a whopping 17 lbs 6 oz! he's in the 90th percentile for both his weight and his height (26 in). i knew he was a big boy, i just didn't think he was THIS big. even though he's still coughing and a bit stuffed up, he got his immunizations anyhow. last time he was out of sorts for a couple of days, so i'm trying to be more prepared this time and offer the tylenol sooner. i haven't been posting as many pictures on his picture blog lately because he has this new thing with the camera. whenever he sees it, he suddenly gets this "deer caught in the headlights" look and won't stop staring at it, open mouthed. this makes cute photo ops a little difficult, but i'll be sure to post his 4 month picture tomorrow.
i had a lovely girls night on saturday evening. josh stayed home with tristan while i went out for mexican food with jessica and zandra. it was so great just chatting away, though i admit that i did call home twice just to make sure tristan wasn't in a funk. i was a little worried that i hadn't pumped enough milk. anyhow, we went out for coffee after dinner and it felt so good...sometimes it can be easy to forget how important it is to get away once in awhile. tristan is finally able to stay awake for more than an hour and a half at a time, so i'm going to try to venture out more with him, perhaps even going to zandra's for coffee this wednesday.
after 2 years of tedious, hard work, the church library finally opened on sunday! i'm not going to get discouraged at the fact that only about 4 families visited it (one of which was my family) but rather i'm going to breathe a big sigh of relief that we finally did it, and only hope that people will end up enjoying it. it was our pastor's last sunday at our church, so there was a lot going on. after 10 years as senior pastor of our church, pastor gary is retiring, and we will miss him greatly. he was the one who encouraged josh to attend the bible school in england where he met me... he also was the one who performed our beach wedding ceremony and he dedicated our son to the Lord. lots of good memories.
ooh, i hear my baby crying...
