After I clicked on 'publish post' yesterday Eliot woke up from a 3-hour nap. Because his nap lasted so long we didn't have time to make lunch and eat it at home before his doctor appointment. So what did we do? We went to McDonalds. I chuckled to myself at the irony of my post earlier that day and the fact that I was shoving greasy french fries at my little man in attempts to get somewhere on time. Thought I would share the difference in reality and ideals!
Yesterday was our first doctor appointment since coming home. Eliot did amazing right up until the whole needles in his leg thing! She said he was doing great and she wasn't super concerned that he's not walking independently yet.
According to the very authoritative Puppy Clifford, love makes little things grow. On that note, Eliot still weighs only 20.6 lbs. He only gained a 1/2lb since leaving Guatemala, even after a McDonald's trip! He's also less than a 1/2 inch longer. For those of you who love percentiles: in the weight category Eliot is in the 5%, in length the 30%, and in head circ. just the 3%. He's our little man!
