4 Month Appointment (at 5.5 months)

I finally found a pediatrician and took Paul in for his 4 month appointment, just a little late! He is officially a very big boy! He was 21 lb 13 oz and 29 inches long. They said he was over the 95th percentile for both, I looked online and the 95th percentile is 20.5 lbs and 28 inches. The doctor was impressed with his size (of course the doctor was a little thing, I could have made just about two of her, Ruthanne may be close to her height!).

Paul can sit up a bit, can roll from back to tummy but often gets his arm stuck under him, and has one tooth (and working on the second). We will be starting cereal soon, I bought some Saturday but then couldn't find the baby spoons, so I need to keep looking. I'm not sure he will be impressed, he thought I was a little crazy trying to give him grape flavored tylenol (for his two shots) and we know that tastes way better than rice cereal!

Wow! He ways the same as Madeleine! At least, where she was at for her 2 year appointment 2 months ago, hopefully she's added another pound or two since.

That is crazy ya'll! I thought it was funny he weighs more than his 1 year old cousin, but two year olds! Ya'll have peanuts! At least I'm building those arm muscles, right?

By the way, I do know how to spell 'weighs' - a 2 year old distraction prevented me from thinking straight! And Madeleine is a tiny little thing - she definitely has a little gymnast body.
