the number 21 means lots of things to people. for us right now, it means micah's weight. he had his 9 month check-up today and he is a whopping 21 pounds. big sister is only 27 pounds! people are always asking us, how did he get so big? we are asking ourselves the same question! he is quite tall for his age though, 29 inches, whereas petite malia is about 37 inches. so we're hoping he surpasses all our heights. but he is happy, he is healthy, he is showered with love. so maybe he is just bursting with all of that!
