July 14, 2009
Today was your 4 month doctor’s appointment. Grandma came with us because you were getting shots and I hate seeing you get shots and in pain. She made you feel better for sure. Here were your stats:
Weight: 13 lbs 14.6 ozs (50th percentile)
Height: 24 3/8 (50th percentile)
Head Circumference: 16.5 (65th percentile)
Since I wrote you last, you’ve had some firsts. You went to the zoo for the first time. And you saw your first fireworks show. We were also baptized.
You didn’t have much interest in the zoo. You’re still too little. I think you really noticed the penguins though. I held you up to the glass and couple swam right past you. I can’t wait to take you when you are more aware of the animals.
You definitely saw and heard the fireworks. We went to our friends, George and Lisa Karavas’, house in Bartlett. They will have a baby around Feb. 21, 2010. You’ll almost be 1 year older than baby Karavas. Anyway, we went to the Bartlett fireworks show. Daddy carried you in the Baby Bjorn. He loved carrying you around in that. You were so alert with the fireworks. Then, you got scared and cried during the finale with all the loud booms.
You were baptized on July 12 with your cousins, Anthony and Olivia.
I love yoU!
