Big Boy!


G-Man's four month appointment was today. We had to go a bit early because I forgot to make the appointment and when I remembered, there was nothing available around his birthday. They tried to give me an appointment at the end of the month, but I wanted him to have the shots before our trip to Germany....so we went today.

It is such a relief to hear that he is doing well from a doctor. Weird. I know he is healthy and happy, but for some reason that validation is so comforting. Especially after our rough start with the NICU and weight loss and everything. He took the shots like a champ, though he was a little more fussy throughout the day than the last time he had shots. He loved the mirror in the office and the paper on the table. Grabbed the paper with his feet and wrapped it up around himself like a blanket. Then looked at himself in the mirror and laughed. And the stats were good:

Height: 26 1/2 inches (95th percentile)
Weight: 14 pounds 14 ounces (60th percentile)
Head Circumference: 90th percentile (I forgot to write down the number.)

He's a champ. What a fun kid.

Sorry I deleted the other one, I had spelling issues, and didn't realize it until it was too late. Anyway, what I was going to say is that I have an adorable nephew! I sware he's changed since he was here.

Super Cute, he always looks like the happiest baby! Well we got Hazel measured and weighed last week. Yeah...so she is in the 90th percentile for weight (which you probably couldn't tell by those cute little rolls) at 21.9 lbs and 27" long (hmmm 25th percentile...a cute little runt) I love every little squishy bit of her!!!!
