4 Month Appointment

We went for Joseph's four month appointment today. He got another clean bill of health, and the doctor had some predictions for us. I wouldn't count on it, but she thinks that:

  • He may be getting teeth sooner than later
  • He will walk very early (Noooooooo!)
  • He will talk very early
Obviously it's because he's a genius. (just kidding, really!)

He got two shots, but took them very well. She was able to give both in one leg, so it went much faster than last time. He only cried for about 30 seconds, and then nursed to sleep. My friend Kati is right, doctor appointments are ALWAYS scheduled during nap time!

Here are his stats:
  • Height: 25 1/4" (57%)
  • Head circumference: 41.5cm (26%)
  • Weight: 13lb 6oz (17%)
No real concerns about his weight. I've conceded that he's just a peanut, and I'm not going to worry about it until the doc says I should. I really trust and respect her advice. We're on the same wavelength about a lot of stuff!

And no solid foods yet. She never even mentioned it, and we'd planned to exclusively breastfeed for the first 6 months (at least) anyway. So, sorry Grandma, no lolly's for Joseph in August.
