4 Month Stats!!

Ian had his 4 month check-up this morning. Here are his 4 month stats:

Weight: 15 Pounds 5 Oz.- 55th percentile for BF babies

Length: 26 inches- 95th percentile for BF babies

Head Circumfrance: 16 1/4- 55th percentile

While there, the doctor gave us the greenlight to start spoon feeding him if we'd like too. although he is doing great and could stay on BM until his 6 month check up! we are skipping the cereal altogether and have introduced avacado, and banana's, but not on a regular basis just yet.

We also found out that Ian inherited another one of daddy's awesome qualities - he has very sensitive skin. And, due to the cold weather and dry heat, he has some mild Eczema on his cheeks. We just have to keep lubing him up with Aquaphor.

The not so fun part of the appointment was getting his vaccines: one was given orally and the other two were shots - one in each leg. I will say that the shots didn't seem to upset him as much as when the doctor undid his diaper to at a look at his "business". Maybe he's modest?
