"Nanny," as we like to call her, had her 4 month well check today. She is doing well and meeting all of her milestones. Her head measurement is 41.5 cm and is in the 50th-75th percentile. She weighs 11 lb 6 oz and is in the 10th percentile for weight (this is normal for my babies until about age 3) and her height is 23.5 inches and the 25 percentile. She has the smallest head of the 3 girls at this age, she is the tallest and about on par with her sisters in the weight area at 4 months. The doctor loved how smiley she was and had fun tickling her feet and listening to her giggle.
All 3 kids had some form of treatment today. Olivia had her flu mist, Amanda her flu shot booster, and Hanna her DTAP, Polio, Prevnar, and HIB shots. Olivia wanted the flu mist (not a shot) but was pulling away and hesitant when the nurse brought it in. So...Amanda went first and took her shot like that "champ." She let out a little shriek and then was up and at 'em again. Olivia decided if Amanda could take the shot like that, she could take her flu mist and all went well. Hanna cried when she got her shots but fell asleep immediately and was fine afterwards.
As a treat, the girls got to have lunch with their daddy. They were so happy and are looking forward to Christmas this weekend!
