After napping for an hour and 45 minutes, C was full of smiles and laughter despite his four immunizations! He is now 15 lbs, 6 oz (15th percentile) and 26.25 inches long (55th percentile). The doctor said that he’s growing well and eased my fears about his development (not rolling over back to tummy yet) by reminding us that every baby meets those milestones at a different rate. We can introduce a second feeding of solids each day whenever we think C is ready.
We just need to go back in another month or so for his flu booster. Then we’re all set until his 9-month checkup!
C had his 4-month checkup with his pediatrician today. He showered his nurse and doctor with smiles until that first immunization needle poked his thigh. He’s 13 pounds, 12 ounces and 25 inches long. His weight percentile actually decreased from his last well-child appointment, but we pretty much saw that one coming!
After the shots were over, we cuddled him and fed him a bottle and he quickly recovered. He spent most of the day sleeping in my arms, but in his wakeful moments he was quite happy.
So glad another round of vaccines is over!
We had C’s 2-month appointment with his pediatrician this week. He’s doing great! He’s 23 inches and weighing in at 11 pounds, 1 ounce. I think he’s going to be a lanky kid, like Hubster was.
C was such a trooper during his shots (one oral, two in his left thigh, one in his right thigh)! We were so proud of him. I think I had a harder time than he did. ;)
He’s been sleeping a lot, but hasn’t had any adverse reactions yet. I love when things turn out better than I anticipated!
