4 Month Checkup
Carolyn got a great report again today at the doctor. She received quite a few more shots and handled it very well again. She is in the 78th percentile for weight at 15 pounds, 60th percentile for height at 24.5 inches, and 94th percentile for head circumference! The doctor was impressed with her motor skills and strength. She recommended to keep applying the magic cream to her skin all over and not just her face and head for the dryness. Because she is doing so well with the bottle she does not recommend rice cereal or any other solids any time soon, maybe not until her 6 month checkup. She said her gums feel pretty solid so she may be working on some early teeth and may be tender at times and perhaps why she cries when about to finish her bottle at the end of day. She smiled at her doctor and was a perfect angel today at lunch. A bit restless at dinner but that is because she wants out of the car seat to be part of the group and social. We are very happy that she is doing so well!
