4-month pedi checkup

I took Eli in for his 4 month checkup today. Here are the stats:

Weight: 11 lbs 2 oz (3rd percentile)
Height: 24'' (15th percentile)

I actually expected him to weigh a little more than that, but the doctor seemed really pleased with his growth and said he's catching up more quickly than he expected. His percentile numbers are for his real age instead of his preemie-adjusted age, so I'm just really excited that he's on the charts. Our boy is doing great!

Yay for being on the charts!!!
Ali was off the charts her last visit in head circumference, but it was in the other direction. Oops. We were bound to have a big-headed child.

Wooohoo! His height is already in a higher percentile than Sawyer has every been. Sawyer just had his 3 year check up and is weight was about the 3rd percentile this time.

My perfectly on-time, not a day late child was in the (whispering) 90th percentile. Yeah, she's a bit on the big and beautiful end of the spectrum.

You're doing a great job with this mommying gig. Eli is doing fabulously!
