This past week has been filled with much thankfulness as we celebrate the health of our kids. Both kids had check-ups at the health center and in church last Sunday we a special Children's Blessing at church. It is a Christian response to the Shinto 7-5-3 (blessing on children).
Since we are always thankful for the kids, no matter their age, all children are welcome for the church blessing. Our two little ones were being shy at church that day (very strange!) so we didn't make it to the front with everyone else!
Here's how they measured up at the check-ups:
102 cm / 40 in. tall, weighs 17 kg / 37.5 lbs
62.5 cm / 24in. tall, weighs 6 kg / 13.2 lbs.
Both are healthy and a little bit ahead with milestones for their age. For that we are very thankful!
