Yesterday was Hunter's 4 month checkup which included some more shots. As with his 2 month checkup he did great and handled the shots like a champ. He only cried for a second and stopped as soon as I picked him up and was even flirting with the nurse again before she left the room. With the exception of the few minutes he got his shots he was super happy and smiley and cooed at the pretty nurse and his doctor.
The doc confirmed what I already know which is my little boy is perfect, a tad chunky with a huge head but perfect. He's developing right on schedule and seems to be totally healthy. Hoorah!
Four Month Stats:
17lbs 9ozs - 84th percentile
(He's gained 10 pounds in 4 months!!! He's my little Chubbs McGee)
25.75" long - 61st percentile
His head circumference is 45.5cms which is in the 97th percentile!!! (Maybe I should start calling him
Fatty McBigHead). We told the doctor that "big heads" run in the family on his fathers side. Kristian actually had to special order his football helmet in high school due to his big dome. The doctor wasn't worried but did say he would keep an eye on it's growth just in case.
The doctor also told us to feel free to start him on some cereal or fruits if we want. I think we may try some Oatmeal this weekend or maybe some Avocado in honor of Cinco De Mayo tomorrow, I think baby boy would like some guacamole!
