Elden now weighs 9 pounds 2 ounces and is 20 and 3/4 inches long. He is four months old. If you adjust for his age and say that he is 6 weeks old, he is roughly in the 18th percentile for height and the 10th percentile for weight...something like that. Of course in real life, he isn't even on the charts. He had his 4 month well baby check and immunizations today. He did great. I had all 5 kids with me at the doctors office. They did pretty well. When we went for Elden's immunizations the sign on the check-in desk didn't make for a relaxing wait: "Please keep your children under control." I sure didn't look at any magazines in that waiting room!

Nice waiting room. What kinds of kids do they have there anyway? Were your kids under control?

Good job Elden-keep up the growing!

Looks like you all had a blast at your family reunion-I know it's stressful to travel with kids but it is so much fun to be with family that it's worth it. I like the pie eating contest idea, we'll have to start that in my family too :)

Did you get to the DC temple early enough that you could sit next to Lee? That is one of my favorite things about that temple!

Elden sounds like he's doing so well! My little guy was only 5 lbs at four months, so consider your guy is doing great!!!
