One Year Doctor's Appointment and a Haircut

Both Weena and I took the day off from work to take care of preparations for Benjamin's first birthday extravaganza, which is being held this Sunday. We also had to take Benjamin for his one year check up with his pediatrician. Here are his stats:

Height: 31 inches
Weight: 23 pounds

He also got three shots. He was a trooper. He cried about a minute as these were administered back to back to back. He was giggling as we left the doctor's office. Next stop, the Hair Cuttery where one of Weena's friends would cut Benjamin's hair.

He was very good, didn't get too squirmy when seated with Weena and I was able to get a lock of his hair after it was snipped. That goes into a silver container that we have.

I've strayed away from sports and other topics for the time being in celebration of Benjamin's first birthday. The Redskins are a mediocre 2-5 this season after making the playoffs last year. I followed the World Series and am attending the Maryland-Florida State football game tomorrow night in College Park, MD. Our party for Benjamin is from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM Sunday. At 6:00 PM most of the crowd here will be gone so I am going to be watching D.C. United's home playoff match against the hated Red Bull of New York. Put 'em away, don't let 'em recover, no mercy! That's the message to coach Peter Nowak and the team. If they do that, they host the Eastern Conference Final next weekend at RFK.
