we had Adalyn's 4 month well-checkup appointment with the
pediatrician. She tipped the scales at 8 pounds 4 ounces (3.76kg),
which was an increase of almost 1/2 pound (200 grams) in just 1 week!
Her length and head circumference stayed pretty much the same, but that
can be normal due to it only being a week. She is still less than 2%
percentile, but her pedi said that she is following her own growth curve
very well and isn't concerned at all.
Her pedi said that we
can also start trying to feed her rice cereal with a spoon once a day at
our discretion. She said that she may not really be able to do it
since she may not have the eating reflex down, but that it's worth a
try. If not, she said to give her the rice cereal in the bottle to get
her body used to it. She said that at 6 months she would really like to
start Adalyn on vegetables. I can't believe that this is already
happening! I don't know if we'll start it tonight (since she got her
shots today), but I'll report back when I do!
She got 2
immunizations today, and she was such a trooper! All morning I felt
guilty because she would look at me with such contentment when I was
feeding her a bottle, and all I could think was that I was going to take
her to get shots and she had no clue!
She cried her pouty mouth cry for less than 1 minute, and wanted to be
held instead of in the carrier (until we got to the car), but other than
that did pretty well. She's laying on me right now, somewhat wrapped
in the Moby wrap, and is sucking away on her pacifier sleeping soundly.
