Yesterday Spen and I went to the canal. I absolutely love the canal!! It is so very beautiful!

Judah had a doctors appointment yesterday, and his doctor was just thrilled with how he is doing. He weighs 13 pounds and is in the 10th percentile for weight, but that's what he was when he was born, so she said he is doing great! He is 25 1/2 inches long, and she said he is really strong and somethings he does (like standing at the couch on his own) are things that six month olds are doing (he is 4 1/2 months).

He had his first immunizations yesterday. When I told the nurse that I wanted him to get his shots, and that he'd not yet had any you would think I had told her I abused my baby. And then I told her we weren't getting all of the recommended vaccinations, just three of them she went on and on about how dangerous it can be to not give them all. I was proud of myself, because I looked her straight in the eye and said "This is my child, and I have researched my decision and you are not going to change my mind." Judah's doctor was actually quite pleased with the fact that we'd decided to wait so long to give him the vaccinations and that we were only doing some of them, so I am glad we have her on our side!!

Tomorrow Judah, Spencer and I are heading up north! It is going to be a long drive - somewhere around the 18 hour mark! I am really looking forward to the trip, I love long car rides!! And so does Spencer, so he is good company for the trip. Hopefully Judah will love it too!

Since I am going to be gone over my birthday Paul decided to celebrate it last night. Spencer agreed to babysit Judah, so we headed out to eat. We wanted to go to this Mediterranean restaurant, but when we got out there we discovered it had recently closed down! Bummer. I so wanted Mediterranean food! We wound up going to Macaroni Grill though, and it was rather delicious! We could order just one dish and have enough food for the two of us... but for some reason we never learn, and ended up coming home with an abundance of food!
I got to open some of my birthday presents early - Paul got me an Ipod!! Except that it's still in the mail on the way here - hopefully it comes today! He got me accessories to go with it, so that's what I got to open yesterday!

Here are some pictures of Spen and Judah at the canal yesterday, and a couple of me and Judah.

What vaccinations did you decide not to give Judah and where can you research those kinds of things? My father-in-law is real big into avoiding some kinds of vaccines too. And good job standing up to that nurse! (I wish I was that brave.)

I did all the vaccinations on my kids becasue in Illinois you can't get into school unless you've had all of them, like it or not. I did spread them out, though and waited a bit longer to start like you did.
