4 Month Well Baby Visit

Lilli had her 4 month well-baby visit today!
As always, we LOVE our pediatrician!! They hardly keep you waiting at all and everything is so modern and up to date. The nurse and doc each have laptops they bring into the room and record everything electronically. They also show you her stats and a graph to show where she’s at and where she’s come from. We had the first appt of the day at 9 am, and by 9:30 we were outta there! (Contrast that to our awful first pedi who kept us waiting for 45 minutes at her 2 wk appt – also for the first appt – in the waiting room – with a ton of sick kids, and we are VERY happy with the new pedi!)She did great except for the actual shots (but who can blame her there?). She smiled and laughed for the nurse and doc, and during the ear portion of her exam she started pulling her docs hair so we had to hold her arms so she could finish! We talked about some issues she’s been having with allergies, a list of my other questions about things like sunscreen, insect repellent, swimming, etc AND we talked about starting some first foods! Sooooo, tomorrow we get to start rice cereal! Yay!!! And if that goes well we can start introducing the other first foods in a few weeks.She’s right on track with everything. She was soooo close to rolling from her back to stomach while on the table. She’s been close for over a month now, so I really don’t think it will be too long. She just has to find the right motivation, I guess!And finally, here are her stats from today:

Weight: 13lbs, 1 ounce ; 35% percentile
Height: 23 7/8 inches, 30% percentile (prob what I am!)
Head: 85% percentile!!

Seriously, she is such a bobble head!!! At her two month she was in the 50’s for height/weight and upper 60’s for head, so we thought she was growing into her head – I guess not! Even so, she is very strong with that big head and has tons of head control these days.Brent stayed home with her the rest of the day so she could rest, and the rotov thing she has to drink upsets her stomach a little, so we didn’t want her to have to go to school. She’s been fine tonight, pleasant and happy, so she’s recovered well. The day of her two month shots was actually one of the first times she ever laughed, so she bounces back quickly from her shots.
Have a great weekend!!!!
