Joel wasn't going to visit the doctor again for a few weeks, but his legs sometimes turn blue.  Really, really blue.  It doesn't seem to bother him.  He doesn't get cranky or crabby or seem otherwise sick.  I move him to a different position and the color comes back.  But still, his legs turn blue.  So we called the doctor and the doctor said (what else) "Come on in!"  After a very long wait in the waiting room (us arriving early and doctor running behind) and a sick girl plopping herself right in the middle of the little boat for kids to climb on, we finally got back to see the doctor. They checked his heart, (good), took him pulse in his leg and arm (96/56 & 108/56), checked his oxygen levels (98% and 86%), and checked his pulse around his middle.  All seemed well.  The doctor says he should probably just grow out of it and to continue doing what I was doing.  His height and weight stats were 14 lbs 7 oz (off the chart) and 23.5 inches long (94th percentile).
