It’s hard to believe four months has passed already. The time is flying by. Didn’t I just bring her home from the hospital? Wasn’t I just wrestling her into a swaddle blanket every night? Remember when I was freaking out over her baby acne?
Baby had her four month check-up last week. She currently weighs a little over 13 pounds and is 25 inches long. I can’t believe she only weighs 13 pounds. It feels like 18!
Everything went well at the appointment. She took her shots like a champ and gave the doc lots of smiles. Unfortunately, later she became quite upset and cried for nearly two hours. Fortunately, Tim had come by to visit with her and was able to go out and get her some baby tylenol. Fifteen minutes after giving it to her she was back to smiling.
The only downside from her appointment is that her folds are not symmetrical. What does that mean? It means she has like two rolls of fat on one leg and one on the other. Same thing on her hind parts.
So she has to have an x-ray next week to look at her hips and whatnot. I am not looking forward to her being hemmed up in some contraption. But it has to be done.
Oh, the doctor let me start her on rice cereal. Momma’s big girl gets to start using her spoons and bowls! She didn’t really like it, but we are trying a teaspoon every day so she gets used to it.
I am going to start trying to make my dinner when I make hers so we can sit down like a proper family and have a meal together. Hopefully, she will mimic eating if I make a good example for her.
