4 month check-up


Today Paige went for her 4 month check up.  She now weighs 15 pounds 11 ounces and is 26 1/2 inches long, which puts her in the 90th to 97th percentile for height, weight, and head circumference!  I can’t believe how fast she is growing!!!  In fact, her 6 month onesies are already getting a little short!

We were also given the go-ahead to give her cereal, fruits, and vegetables, but because she is growing so well on breastmilk (and the occasional formula), she said we could wait until 6 months to introduce solids.   We were also told that Paige is on track developmentally.

We also talked to the doctor about how scared Paige seems to get with new people and new places.  She said it was totally normal and just shows good bonding with us.  But, she did say to gently expose her to more people, so let us know if anyone wants to come visit!

Paige also got another round of shots today (the same shots given at 2 months).  She was not very happy about it, but she did calm down pretty quickly again and so far today has stayed in a good mood.
