Today we took the bug in for his 4 month check up. Neither Chris nor I guessed right on the weight. Michael weighed in exactly inbetween our guesses at 17 lbs 1 oz. And he measured 25 1/2 inches long. I think he's prepping for a big growth spurt. The doctor then did her exam and said he was doing Great - of course! :-)
But we had the dreaded shots waiting to wrap up the visit. No mom enjoys watching her baby get shots, but I know it's for the best, which is what I have to remind myself when I watch him wiggle away from the nurse. The first one happened without even a flinch. I don't think he felt a thing with his chunky legs. Then the second. The nurse warned us it burned - and she was right - when the meds went in, our little guy came alive! We experienced super sonic screams! Within a few minutes our boy was back to him normal giggly self - thankfully! Overall a successful visit - now if we could only master this spoon feeding thing.
