4 Month Checkup

Calvin had his big 4 month wellness check this morning and he's doing great! Weight-wise, he's up to 15 lbs 3 oz, which kind of surprised me at first although it only puts him at the 50th percentile. That means he actually slipped a little on the curve from his 2 month check where he was at the 65th %ile. But the doctor said nothing to worry about, that still means that he's average (in weight only!).

In terms of height, he's staying pretty constant. He measured 26", putting him at the 81st %ile. At his 2 month, he was 23.75", at the 80th %ile.

And now what you've all been waiting for, his melon. Here's where the boy shined. His head now measures a solid 18", which puts him proudly at the 99th %ile! At his 2 month, he was 16.5", at the 91st %ile. Before you make any slanderous comments, the doctor said that's good since that's where his brain is developing. So that's why he's such a smarty-pants!

He also got a couple shots which he was NOT happy about! ... for about 5 minutes and then fell asleep. Poor little guy!
