4 Month Check-up

Emmy Cate went to the doctor today for her 4 month visit and she is doing great!!  The vital stats are her weight was 14lbs. 12ozs., which puts her in the 75th percentile, her height was 26”, which puts her in the 97th percentile, and her head circumference was 41cm, which is the 50th percentile. 

She has hit all of her developmental milestones so far with the exception of laughing and rolling from front to back.  That little stinker wants to laugh so hard but she only gets out a “half laugh” and will not yet giggle.  Daddy has been getting some seriously cute reactions from her the last couple of days, so she isn’t going to be able to hold out much longer!!  As far as the rolling over part, we do have to take a minute to brag a bit about how impressed the doctor was that EC can roll from back to front and did so when she was only 2.5 months old.  Apparently the average age for that is 6 months!!  Wow – go EC!!  The average age to roll from front to back is 4 months, so she isn’t really behind there.  Other things that she was ahead of the curve on were bearing weight on her legs and being able to grab objects pretty well.  She also sits up with support well and so the doc okayed her to start rice cereal and oatmeal!  That will be a riot, I’m sure!

Poor baby also had to get another round of shots again and it was not a pretty sight!!  It’s hard to say who cried more – EC or Mom!  J/K – She did cry but only for a couple of minutes.

Other than that, today is the first day of fall and so we are all a little sad that summer is over.  However, since the summer stuff is on sale now at Target, we stocked up for next summer!!  She is all ready to get out on the lake!!
