9 Months!

Yesterday Henry turned nine months old. He's now lived about the same outside of the womb as in it. He's still very attached to his mommy, however. Meg took him to the doctor's yesterday for a check-up. He now weighs 21 lbs. 10 oz and is 29½ inches tall. He's also learned a new sound, "ffffuh."

I searched some coin last night.

640 quarters and 800 dimes produced just one Canadian quarter and two Canadian dimes. The hunt for a silver quarter goes on.

4,440 nickels yielded one War Time (1943P), fourteen Canadians, one Bahamas 5¢, one Bermuda 5¢ and one Singapore 20¢. I've decided to start a big push on the nickels in an effort to find the remaining two for my album, 1938D and 1943D.

1,700 pennies turned up fourteen Wheats and sixteen Canadians. The Wheats were:

1916, 1931, 1940, 1944(3), 1946, 1948, 1951, 1956D(2), 1957, 1957D, 1958

The 1931 is a bit rare, it is only the third or fourth I've found.

Found: 1 penny (at Sovereign Bank)

I wonder if Hallmark do a "You've been out as long as you were in!" nine month anniversary card?

I bet there's an untapped market there!
