i’ll do a post on my way to china about the last year & how good it’s been. i’ve been feeling very very lucky these days about a lot of things. this evening a bunch of things quickly got put into perspective — sam was on my lap having crackers & started to choke. he couldn’t breathe at all. i yelled for kathy & turned sam upside down (he was turning red) and hit him on the back — he spit up the crackers and everything was fine, although he was a little scared. me, too. such small things have such large potential impacts. i was pretty scared.
but it’s all good. we had some milk & a fruit bar then got ready for bed. great kid.
in other news, just had his 18 month checkup, and everything looks good. 80th percentile height (although i think the nurse hosed him) and 55th on weight. he’s doing great.
