Bella had her four-month checkup today. All is going great! Here’s the info:
Height: 27 in (off the charts for a girl)
Weight: 13 lbs 7 oz (perfectly average at 50%)
Head Circ: 42 cm (soft spot still great)
Temp: 98.3 degrees
She had all of her shots, and even though she cried pretty hard for a few minutes, she relaxed and went to sleep on the drive home. Doc says she is doing GREAT! He wants us to wait until 6 mos to start solids, unless she starts seeming dissatisfied and unfulfilled with breastmilk – for the time being she seems fine, so I’ll follow his orders. The only thing he is requesting is that we train her to sleep a little longer at night (she currently sleeps about 9.5 hours, Doc wants 12). I guess we will have to figure out a way to get her to bed earlier…I think this will be more of a challenge for Jeremy and I, than it will for little Bella. It is just SO hard in the evenings to get it all together before 9 o’clock… 🙂 As soon as we get back from Austin, I am going to make it my goal to move her bedtime down to at least 8 o’clock consistently…
I’ll keep you posted on her progress!
