4 Month Stats

Weight: 17lbs 6oz (Kai was 18lbs 5oz)
Height: 26.5 inches (Kai was 27 inches)
Head circumference: 41.5cm (Kai was 44 cm)

His height and weight are in the 90th percentile but his head is somewhere between the 25-50th percentile. He did well for his shots and only cried for a minute. Thank goodness Kai was at a friend's house because the doctor's appt was an hour late (he had to deliver a baby). I'm planning on starting him on either rice cereal or pears tomorrow, I know its early, but I'm his mom so I get to make these decisions:) I'm not doing it because he's too light (obviously) but because I'm hoping he can go a little longer between feeds. His nights are getting worse and worse and I'm getting just way too tired.

By the way, please pray for my family as May 7th is just around the corner. I don't like May 7th. Three years ago, my mom passed away on that day. Mother's Day is just three days later. Ouch.

  1. Considering that my 20 month old is not even 20 pounds yet, I think Koen is doing amazing...even with all his reflux problems. Way to go Louise on keeping him well fed. Good luck with starting solids!
