Today Amelia had her official 4 month check-up. We would have had it last week, but she had another ear infection. Thankfully, she received a clean bill of health today!
Our little sweet P weighs 15 pounds, 6 ounces and is 25 1/2 inches long! The nurse measured her length twice...the first time she was 26 1/2 inches and the nurse didn't believe she could be that long so she measured her again. I actually think she's 26 1/2 inches long, based on the measurements we've taken at home, but whatever. She's in the 85th percentile for length and 90th percentile for weight. Dr. S. is really really happy with her development and thinks she's a beautiful child (she is, of course!).
She has incredible head/neck control so we've been given the green light to start baby food. I'm sure that will get a whole blog entry to itself, so stay tuned! The doctor also confirmed what I've been suspecting--we have teeth on the top & bottom getting ready to poke through!!! This is going to be quite an adventure.
Because it was her 4 month check-up, Amelia got some more immunizations. She got 4 shots (!!!) and an oral vaccine. She did NOT like the shots, but as soon as I held her she felt better and stopped crying. We've been giving her Tylenol every 4 hours, and she's been a very good baby all day. Of course we've been giving her all the cuddles she can stand to make up for the hard day she had! Amelia is such a trooper, despite the immunizations she is still laughing and playing.
We go back for her 6th month check-up. It will be here before we know it! Amelia is growing up before our very eyes.
