First Teeth Brushing

Ernie had some teeth so I informed him of the unfortunate news that now he needed to brush them all the time. With great power comes great responsibility.

One of St. Louis' strengths is a Jewish community of sufficient to support several great delis. I don't think that things are quite the same in the Seattle area but we did manage to find a decent place: Gilbert's on Main in Bellevue. I ordered way too much food but I couldn't pass up the pastrami or the matzo-ball soup and I don't think I should be ashamed about that.

Ernie has started sticking his tongue out a ton and thinks it's hilarious when you stick your tongue out at him. He went to the doctor today and got some shots, but it didn't seem to bother him much. last time he got shots I think he seemed sick for a brief period of time. He weighed in at 20.9 pounds and 27.7 inches which were both 100 percentile. His head was so big that his neck took longer to strengthen enough to move it around, and so he had a flat spot on his head that would require one of those goofy ass helmets if we didn't fix. The doctor said that his head is looking much better as we have been having him do a lot of tummy time and carrying him in a carrier rather than a stroller when possible. I'm not saying we are the best parents ever but if you said it I would agree with you.
