Well today was our 4 month check up. It went great. He has met all milestones (early) again. His stats are:
- Weight: 16 pounds 10 ounces (75-90 percentile)
- Length: 27.25 inches (99th percentile :eek:)
- Head Circ: 44cm (90-95 percentile)
Dr. J said that he was a long baby and would probably retain that height as he grows. Matt is 6'0" so I hope he gets to be at least that tall. My brothers are 6'2" and 6'0" and my grandpa that just passed was pretty tall too. I am only 5'3" so he will tower over me soon enough. I'll just have to stand on a chair to yell at him, lol!
He got two injection vaccines and one oral (Rotateq) vaccine. He didn't cry at all for the first shot but he did cry a little for the second one. When we got home he took a long nap (10am-2pm!). We're still doing 2 ounces of Motts for Tots apple juice every day to keep the constipation in check and it is working perfectly. She said the oatmeal mixed with fruit was fine to keep continuing. Some days he will eat an entire bowl and some days he will only eat a few spoonfuls. That is fine with me. I don't force anything on him.
His gums are irritated but no tooth erruption yet. She said we still had time before they start coming in. So that was our check up and now here is a pic!
