4 Month Check-Up

Jack had his four-month check-up Wednesday and all is well. He weighs 20 lbs., 13 oz. (99.7th percentile), is 27" long (97th percentile) and his head circumference is 16 3/4" (50th percentile). The doctor said he's not overweight for his length, so nothing to worry about (we weren't worried). He said developmentally he's right on track: he's talking and gurgling, grabbing for things and bringing them to his mouth, smiling and laughing, etc. He also gave us the green light to start introducing solid foods. More on that in a later post.

Jack had to get 3 immunizations - one was a liquid squirted into his mouth and the other two were shots. He took them like a champ and barely cried. A vast improvement from the last time when all three of us cried! He was a little fussy that night, probably from the shots, but a little Tylenol cured that!

We've been busy getting ready for the holidays. Jack sat on Santa's lap again, this time at Bass Pro.
He also helped Mommy bake cookies one day.
