Nathan - 4 month check-up

My poor little baby... he's been battling this silly cold for six days now. But, at his four month check-up today (of which we got to see his regular pediatrician) she confirmed that his lungs and ears are nice and clear, and that he is on the back end of this nasty cold! THANK GOODNESS! It breaks my heart to hear him coughing so much and so hard. :-(

But, other than this cold, he's a healthy, growing little boy! Here are his stats:

Weight: 13.8 pounds (18th percentile)
Height: 25 inches (45th percentile)

Of course I looked at Sean's baby book this morning to see what he was at four months, just out of curiosity. Sean weighted 12.4 pounds and was 24 inches! He's going to be my big boy!!!

She said that since he is such a wiggler (yes, it's a word), and that since he's rolling all over the place, we could start baby food next week! Hard to believe that he's old enough for that - we just started cereal after all! Hopefully this will help keep with the reflux and keep him full enough to sleep through the night (or at least only get up once). All that movin' and a shakin' just burns so many calories!

No shots today since he's getting over the cold. WHEW!
