Olivia had her 4-month check up today...here's the rundown:

  • Weight: 14 lbs 14.4 oz (75th percentile)
  • Height: 24.5 inches (50 percentile)
  • Head Circumference: I forget it now...but she grew 3 inches and is in the 75% percentile for her noggin. 

How about that! She's plump and big headed and I love it!

The doctor said we could start rice cereal and then stage one solids at any time. I am looking forward to that because we are flying through formula--which I am buying by the case load. Olivia takes about 5-6 ounces about 6-7 times a day. The doctor said that is about her peak 30-35 ounces.

She also had two more shots today and a taste of some sweet stuff. She was sooo good for the first shot, but the second got her good. She hollered for about 10 seconds and let it go. Overall, MUCH better this go round. 

After her appointment, Charm City Daddy took her to the mall (all by himself for the first time) to go Christmas shopping, I guess. I was more nervous for him than he was. In fact he wasn't nervous at all. He was all, "I got this. I'm very competent." I was like "Cool, go Daddy! Here's the Baby Bjorn and diaper bag. Peace!"

Then I went home finished shoveling our driveway (total role reversal there for a second--him shopping me shoveling). Did I tell you we got about 19-20 inches of snow? Then I made dinner--paella!

Three hours later daddy and baby arrived home like no big deal. Meanwhile, I'm looking at the clock the entire time they are away thinking..."oh its time for her next bottle. I wonder if he's changing her diaper.."yaddah yaddah yaddah.

Guess what? He gave her no bottle between 4pm and 7pm nor did he change her diaper and they were both perfectly fine!

Man, why can't I have stress free shopping trips like that?
