Four Month Checkup!

Today Bella had her 4 month checkup. She is 13lbs 4oz and 23 1/4 inches long. She's in the 50% for weight and 75% for height. Right on track! I gave her some Tylenol before the appointment, and she didn't' scream as bad when she got her shots. I nursed her right after also, which helped her to calm down.

She's been fussy for most of the afternoon. Hopefully tomorrow she will be back to normal. We aren't starting her on any solids or cereals yet. The Ped said that the AAP recommends waiting until 6 months. He said if I want to try to space out her feedings I could, but starting her on cereals or anything else isn't necessary. He did suggest getting her some Vitamin ADE drops ( i think, I have it written down). This is just to ensure she gets all her vitamins.

She is hitting her milestones like she should, and he said she is doing great. Of course we told him she hates to be on her tummy, but he put her down and she pushed up and was all happy and fine and then rolled over. LOL OF COURSE! Ah well. At least she was good at the doctors office.

Well, that's it for the update on Bella. I need to take the pics off the camera and upload them! Maybe tomorrow..
