Smiley's December Weight

A problem with quality control for vitamin D3 is causing a nation-wide shortage of infant vitamins. Too many are on the product recall list. We've been waiting for almost a month for our prescription, which was finally ready today.

Smiley's pediatrician's office is within walking distance from the house, a block away from the pharmacy. So my wife dropped Smiley and I off at the pharmacy on her way to work and we walked home.

On the way the pediatrician's office kindly agreed to do a measuring and weighing of Smiley, when we visit relatives for the holidays and they ask us how big he is we can tell them. He is 27 inches and 16 pounds, 10 ounces.

UPDATE: A month later, at his nine month checkup on January 9th he was 28 inches tall (45th percentile) and he weighed 17 pounds, 13 ounces (10th percentile). His head size was 46.5 cm (65th percentile).
