4 month check up

Well, today is Addie’s 4 month birthday and she had her 4 month check up on the big day. She is doing great. She had to get 4 more shots and the 2nd dose of a vaccine they give them orally now (lucky for Ella they hadn’t come up with that yet when she was a baby), but she was a trooper and only cried for 1 of them, the 2nd of the 4 to be exact – poor baby! Since Mike hasn’t started summer school yet we were all able to go to the appointment. I was reading over the info the doctor gave us on the way home and told him I couldn’t believe she is almost 6 months old (well, 2 more months, but still!) – it seems like we just had her! I also can’t believe it’s already time to start thinking about giving her solid foods!
Here are her stats: Addie weighs 12lbs. 10oz. (25th percentile), is 25” long (75th percentile) and her head is in the 25th percentile. I was surprised she was only in the 25th percentile for weight because she has been much bigger than Ella since birth, so I was shocked when I got home and checked Ella’s baby book to see that at 4 months she weighed 13 lbs. 6oz.! This is especially crazy considering at 2 months Addie weighed the same as Ella at 3 months. Poor Addie, we’ve been calling her our chubby baby and our big baby and she is really just a skinny little thing - hopefully she won't have a complex later in life :-)!

She's so cute! What a beautiful smile. She and Ella look so similar to me. You need to put some baby pictures of you and Mike up.

She and Jasper totally need to meet. She is little! Jasper already weighs over 13 lbs. Marci, you have such a cute family. Way to go, mama!
