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.
