Is this thing on? Wow! Two days without Internet can make you nuts. When it rains this much our connection often suffers, as do I. Anyway, we seem to be okay now.
Just got home from the Chunker’oos 4 month check up. I cannot believe that for months ago, today, I had that amazing little ball of sunshine. I tell Mike all the time that since having him, I smile 100% more, everyday. Its true too, everyday I am as happy as I have ever been. Even the days that make me want to light my hair on fire and run screaming from the house, this is still the best thing I have ever done!
So, just how chunky are we talking? HA!
Weight 15 lbs 10 oz (75%) Height 24 inches (10%) head 44.5 cent, (97%!!!!) OMG- his head is in the 97th percentile. I don’t need to say how grateful I am that it didn’t start that way, right? My word!
The Dr and I discussed the rice cereal and both agreed that he is clearly getting all he needs from breast milk and that adding cereal at this point would pretty much be for fun, to practice eating. We both think that we can wait until 6 months when we can do fruits and veggies and a very small amount of cereal and skip the empty calories. I’m happy with that, it was what I wanted her to say. I just don’t want him porking out. The weight he has put on so far is because the milk is custom, apparently he is supposed to be a meatball. I don’t want him actually overweight which could happen if he digs the cereal. The only thing on the check list of milestones we were missing was rolling over. But, he’s this close to sitting up, she said as long as he keeps advancing his skills don’t worry about it. Since he’s working so hard to sit she said its a sign that he’s fine and just isn’t that into tummy time. Its when they just stall that its an issue. That’s basically it. Aside from the screaming from the shots, my word does that break a Mamma’s heart! I think the nurse should get some sort of bonus for every baby they have to make cry, I don’t know how they do it.
