Not a Murmur

Daddy and Lena try out a few more urban hiking trails together. The air was chilly that morning, so we both stayed close to home.

Not many people know this, but baby Lena was diagnosed with a heart murmur during her two month checkup. Thankfully, the latest news broke last Friday: the doc told Kathy that all signs of the heart murmur have disappeared!

Our 15 lb. 4 oz. daughter is already 25 ¾ inches long, easily ensuring her place in the 95th percentile of 4 month old babies in the U.S., length wise AND weight wise. She’s a lot of baby to love, and we’ve got a lot of love for her.

Lena and I savored some more Daddy-daughter time together this past week.

Fitness, lunch, and tons of other running around… all before our E.P.I.C. student ministry shindig that night.

I’ll let Lena have the last word:
