Ella had her 4 month pediatrician appointment today and had to get the same vaccines as last time...2 in each thigh and 1 orally. :( My poor baby. She did do a little better this time- the screams were a tad quieter and for a shorter amount of time.
Weight- 12.4 pounds
Height- 23.5 inches
She is in the 55th percentile for her adjusted age (which is 2 1/2 months) and 25th percentile for her actual age. That's great because she was only in the 5th percentile for actual age last time! The doctor was very impressed with her neck control and ability to already roll over, but because she has a flat head in back and is not yet batting at toys, we have to take her to see an OT, who will give us exercises for both issues.
We asked about starting solids, and he said because she was so early, we need to wait until 5.5 months to start rice cereal.
Overall, she's doing great!
