I am absolutely floored that Norah is four months old. I know people say that time flies, but seriously, it does... we aren't using figurative language here! So yesterday was her four month appt, and here is the run down:
13 lbs 4 oz 43rd percentile :)
23.5 inches 24th percentile :) Short baby.
42cm head 76TH PERCENTILE. Wow! She's got daddy's head!
She also has ANOTHER stinking ear infection. This makes #3 in four months. Her first two were double ear infections. The pedi said that if she has three more before July, then we've got to seriously discuss tubes. :( Poor baby.
Overall she looks perfect. The Pedi checked her over, and aside of her ears, there were no problems. Her doctor told me that she had incredible trunk control for four months, so that made me happy. She also said that we should start solids in about two weeks. She told us to start on cereal first of course... What's funny is that she said, "Ok so you will need to mix three tablespoons of cereal with a tablespoon and a half of your formula there." The she pointed to the bottle that H was feeding Norah. I said, "Oh, that's not formula, that's breastmilk." She dropped her papers in her lap and said emphatically, "That's breastmilk?!!?" I said yes and she said, "That is the thickest, creamiest, breastmilk I've ever seen! No wonder she is gaining weight like she is supposed to!" I blushed and said, "Um, thank you?" Lol... it was funny.
So, our baby sweetness is just as perfect as we think she is. I just wish she didn't have another ear infection. We'll just monitor things and see how it goes.
I'll edit this and post her four month pics later.
- I am a 29 year old teacher of fourth grade. My husband and I began TTC in March of 2008. We conceived our first month, but unfortunately it only ended in an early miscarriage. 8 months later we finally conceived again, and she was our take-home baby! Norah Jane was born on July 16, 2009. 7lbs 0oz 19" long and amazing. We recently had our sweet baby boy, Miles! He was born on June 12, 2013 at 3:37pm, weighing in at 8lbs 4oz, 20 inches long, and PERFECT! We are loving every minute of parenthood (even the frustrating minutes!). This blog is an attempt to chronicle the baby steps, foot steps, leaps, bounds, and milestones of this journey.
