We just got back from seeing Dr. James (the most wonderful pediatrician in the world). Our boy is happy, healthy and ahead of the norm. Let's start with the stats:
Weight: 18 lbs.
Height: 27 in.
Head Circ: 18 in.
*All in the 95th percentile!
Dr. James spent some time with him going over the general exam. He's a fan of how strong Michael is! He's a bit more developed anteriorly than most 4 month olds, which means he's sitting incredibly well for a baby his age. He followed objects perfectly and passed the exam with flying colors. Michael received four vaccinations (quickly followed by the hardest cry ever). I was a little upset that he couldn't receive his FLU vaccination, because the hospital hasn't received them yet. Hopefully, by the time we get to Chicago and get settled our new pediatrician will have the necessary vaccinations and boosters. So, just what I like to hear. "Kim, he's perfect!" See, I'm not the only one who thinks so!! :)
