Checking in

Terry left on Saturday for a 2-week trip to Mongolia; it was a rough parting from Valerie as she was just heading towards nap time when he left. He'll be back on Sunday the 31st.

Meanwhile, the days have been sunny and relatively warm so we've been going outside as much as we can in between Gabriel's naps. He's settled (more or less) into a 3-nap-a-day pattern and is sleeping somewhat better at night, although he also seems to be working on his top teeth now - drooly and cranky.

We had his 6-month check-up last week; he's grown about 4 centimeters (about 2 inches? for a total of I think 27 inches) but hasn't gained much weight, although here they weigh the babies fully dressed so it's hard to say how accurate it is. Maybe a pound in 2 months (total 8.5 kilos or so). So I'm not in a hurry to night wean. I had the impression that he felt leaner and longer so this was my proof.

Well Val wants me to play with her so that's all you get for today :-)
