What’s up, Doc? (4 month check-up)

Today mom and dad took me to the doctor for my well child check-up. Doc says I’m healthy and cute! At 3.5 months, I weighed in at 13 lbs and 11 ounces, which puts me in the 40th percentile for weight. At 25 inches long, I scored around the 64th percentile for height/length. My peanut head, however, was only in the 12% range. Whoops! Still, Doc says all my numbers look good; I’m growing big and strong! He even said I can try solid foods in a couple weeks if I want. He suggested starting with rice cereal or vegetable/fruit baby food, but I was thinking more along the lines of chocolate cake! So, that’s the good news. The bad news came when the nurse decided I was due for more shots. First she was all nicey-nicey, telling me how everything would be okay, and then BAM! …She stuck a needle in each of my legs. Ouch!! Someone needs to tell her that is no way to make friends. Luckily I survived, but I overheard mom and dad make an appointment for a 6 month check-up?! I’m either staying home next time or demanding that we get switched to a nurse who isn’t armed with needles.

  1. Hey Peanut, glad to see your check up went well. I feel your pain over those shots you took. Bring on the solid food ! PoPs will send you ice cream to go with your cake. Now we will really show them how I can fill those Thunder Pants. That should be fun. Have a good day Peanut. PoPs

  2. Hi. Baby Jaeger 🙂

    You are growing up fast. Solid food is pretty yummy especially mashed bananas and yams. Tell me what you think? Sorry about those shots, did the nice nurse give you a sticker? I’ll check up on you later ❤ nessa
