4 month checkup

Lillian turned 4 months old recently, and last Wednesday (the 22nd) she had her 4 month checkup. She now weighs 13 lbs. 5 oz. and is 24 1/2 inches long. Apparently she is now in the 50th percentile for both height and weight and in the 75th percentile if you calculate it based on her due date. Lillian put on a little show for the doctor by holding her head up, and doing little push-ups from her tummy. Her pediatrician was very impressed that Lillian had gotten so big, and was doing things that 4 month old, full term babies can do.

Of course it wouldn't be a doctor's visit if she didn't get some shots. She seemed to handle them better this time than last. There wasn't even any noticeable swelling from the tetanus shot. She has been more sleepy and cranky the rest of the week, which we think is her immune system responding to the shots.

Of course she's progressing quickly. It's hereditary,
