10 Month Check-up

Meron had her 10 month check-up today and we finally got to see how much she was clocking in at on the scale. My guess was 100-120 pounds - thats what she felt like when ya carried her around for a while (or pushed her for 6 miles in the woods).

I was wrong. She was a nice healthy 20 pounds and 27 inches tall/long. Doing good.

To keep things exciting for us - Meron decided to mysteriously bleed all over the place. After some investigative work on the parts of us, the nurse, the doctor - we found out she had grabbed the paper tape measure they use to measure her head and she gave herself a nasty little papercut on her finger.


That was nothing compared to the shots though - thank God we're caught up!

What a beautiful, healthy girl! Glad she had a good check up, but sorry about those shots! Tell her we all love her and miss her way out here in Arkansas!!

I have been stalking your blog for a couple of months and it seemed rude not to say hello! I can't wait to get my daily dose of Meron-what a precious gift! She has grown so much!

We are at the very beginning stages of our Ethiopian adoption journey and when things are not going quite the way we went them to, your blog is a daily reminder that there is light at the end of the tunnel!
