Poor little Rafi has had an ear infection this past week and a bit. Last Tuesday I had to take the day off from work and take him to the Dr. where his little earache was diagnosed. He's making a speedy recovery, thankfully.

Just as a little note for ourselves, his head was a whopping 20.5 inches (yes, off the charts!)
Weight: 24.something pounds (Not really any additional weight this past couple of months taking him from the 50th to the 20th percentile in weight)
Height: 33.5 inches. (Massive growth spurt, which is probably why he hasn't added any weight as he's been too busy growing upwards!)

It's been a difficult week because Raf has been taking things VERY hard. Asking him to take the dog food out of his mouth, for instance, leads to a whole lot of tears, as does practically anything. But as he'd feeling less poorly he seems to be coping better with things; at least I hope!

It's Sunday night. We've had a lovely weekend with Raf. Yesterday we took him to Borders for a couple hours of running around the store fun, and this afternoon I took him to the Peekaboo Center, and he had a lovely time playing with the balls and trains. Um, that's all he seems to play with at home, too!

Not a very scintillating blog, but there you have it.
