The Juliana Report

daisy_knotwise bundled Julie off to the pediatrician today for her four month checkup. Everything looks good. She's 26 and 3/4 inches long and 17 lbs. 3 oz. in weight, which puts her in the 100th and 98th percentiles respectively, so the slight chunkiness that we were keeping an eye on appears not to be a problem. Or as the doc said, "She's a big baby." The minor drooling and spit up problem we've noticed is also pretty normal. Apparently, she's big on sucking, but occasionally forgets about the whole swallowing part of the activity. *sigh* :)

In other news, Gretchen reports that Katie is now tall enough to operate door knobs and to press the elevator call button at the doctor's office. This wasn't true two months ago.

All that Palin Jazz

Since I see from my friends list that you're still interested in talking about Sarah Palin, here's an article which tries to sort out what's true and false about the Governor. If you've got a factual rebuttal to any of the points that he makes, I'm sure he'd be delighted to hear from you, as he seems to be interested in getting the story straight.

(It looks like his personal blog, linked from the article, has gone under from the load. But you can comment on the article directly if you have useful information.)
