4 Month Appointment



Little missy had her 4 month appointment this morning.

I've been dreading this - I had never seen her freak like she did after she got her shots last time, and she was just miserable that whole day after. But this time went so, so much better so far!

 
She is 17 lbs, 7 oz. and 26 1/2 inches tall as of this morning.  She's in the 95th percentile for everything now, which means she is getting taller and not gaining weight as fast.  I thought she might start to even out, and I think we're seeing the beginning stages of it!
 
The doctor gave us the go-ahead to try cereals in the next few weeks, so I think that's our next little milestone.
 
 
She loved the paper.  This is what it looked like when we left...
 
 
And of course, we had to get shots.  Maybe I was just prepared for it more this time, but she didn't seem to freak out nearly as much.  And I had Noah again to stand with her while she got them - I just can't take it.  But she was fine by the time we got in the car.  After a 10 minute car nap, she was back to her happy smiley self!  
 
She's napping again right now.  That's another thing I learned last time - Tylenol IMMEDIATELY after we get home.  We did that, and she's been fine.  Hopefully it keeps up for the rest of the day!
