editor's retraction

The editor of this blog would like to make a formal apology to the family of the writer’s sister, Kristin, for the inaccurate weight measurement of their youngest daughter, Gabby.  It was brought to the editor’s attention that Gabby actually weighed 17 pounds at her 6-month check-up and not the erroneous 27 as earlier reported.  Furthermore, her length was 27 inches, which placed her in the 90th percentile for “height” (we put that in quotes because at 6 months she is not yet totally vertical, so height is irrelitive).  We apologize for an duress that was caused due to this misstatement of the facts and will make every effort to ensure that the writer gets the facts straight next time.
