James had his 4 month appointment yesterday, but he couldn't get his shots because they accidentally scheduled his shots to soon to when he had his last ones. We were still able to do the rest of his checkup though. It's always fun to see how fast your baby's growing; however, I was a little sad. At his last check-up he was in the 90% and 80% percentile. This time it was less, and I guess I was sad because I'm worried that he'll have the short Brinton genes from my side. (oh please oh please don't let him be a hobbit like me.:D) Anyway, here they are: 17 lbs (65% percentile for weight, well technically he was .5 ounces less than 17, so I rounded up. Side note, his cousin Scarlett weighed 16 pounds when she was 10 months, so by the time he's one they might be the same size and perfect little playmates), 26 inches (75% percentile for height), and 44cm. for his head (75% percentile). What's he doing now? He is seriously on the verge of crawling. Lately he's been lifting his bum high in the air and then letting it down whilst kicking his legs furiously), he grabs on to things a lot, he laughs a lot, he sticks his hand in my mouth because I pretend that I'm eating it and that makes him laugh, he is also on the verge of rolling over, he's gotten much better at sitting up, he blows spit bubbles, does lots of trills/raspberries with his lips, still goes "mamamama" (not like a toddler saying mom, he's just experimenting with a new sound he's discovered, plus he only does this when he's really upset 'cause he knows it gets our attention.) and he's wearing 6-9 month clothing. Hope that's everything, here he is at 4 months:
Stop trying to impress the lady-babies with your unbuttoned footie pajamas!
The cutest baby boy in the world! (and yes I can say that...I'm his mother!)
For some reason James reminds me of the turtle from "The Neverending Story" in this picture...
