4 Month Check-Up

After the horrible last appointment and the wait times and dirty lobby at this appointment, we are defiantly switching clinics.  Spencer was a trooper for his second round of vaccinations, no fever or reaction so far and it has been about 36 hours.  I am calling these his 4 month stats even though they are a little early.

Length: 26 inches Weight: 11 pounds 13 ounces Head: 16.5 inches

It turns out that he is in the 90th percentile for length and the 10th for weight.  The doctor said that is fine, but that she would prefer if he was gaining a little more.  This contradicts what she said at the last appointment when he had gained less and was in a lower percentile, but that was fine. Ugh. Definitely switching.

He seems to be doing pretty well developmentally.  He can roll both ways and is getting way more vocal.  We had his first true giggle today and that was awesome. I haven’t checked the baby book in a while, but I think he is on track for most things.  And he has learned to eat his foot which is just about the cutest thing ever.

Holy Roller

The little babe has now rolled over both ways.  He has been rolling over tummy to back for a while now, but mostly that was his head tipping him over during tummy time.  In the last few weeks, he finally started to enjoy being on his stomach and will look around and occasionally even smile which is a huge difference from the beginning.  Tummy time on the floor was a time for screaming and tears – on people he tolerated being on his stomach, but the position seemed less than ideal. Then he started laughing when on his stomach and rolling over with a bit more intent.  It wasn’t always speedy, but he got over.  This morning when I went to get him out of his crib he was on his belly looking around.  I didn’t see it, but he must have turned over after he woke up.  I am sure we will spend most of today on the bed trying to get him to do it again.

It seems like he has changed so much just in the last 2 weeks.  I had same baby, same baby, same baby, and then pow! all of a sudden I have a giggling, supper vocal flipping machine.  It is awesome and I am so glad I am still home from work to see it all.
