Tales from my life as a mom of 2 sons and 2 daughters

River had his 4 month well baby visit today... he is getting so big!

He weighs 14 lbs 14 oz (25-50th %). He is 24 3/4 inches long (50th %) and 17 inch head (50th %).

He also had to get 3 shots (actually 5 vaccines). He cried/screamed until they let go of him and let us pick him up and then he promptly put his thumb in his mouth and passed out. Poor boy.. I figure he'll probably sleep most of the day.

The doctor was so impressed with him. She had him stand on the table and he tried to walk toward her (with her help of course) and she put him on his belly so that he was looking at me and he had his head all the way up and was trying so hard to scoot toward me but couldn't quite figure it out. She is said he is doing beautifully. Advanced all the way across the board.

She wants to keep him on the Nutrimagen until at least 6 months of age. When we go back for his next visit in August we'll talk about solids then but we don't plan on starting him on any solids until at least 6-7 months to try and cut back on the chance of allergies. She gave us another form to take to WIC so they will continue to pay for his nutrimagen (25 dollars a can and he goes through 9 cans a month).

Here are a few pics from yesterday when he turned 4 months :)
