4 month checkup
We took Braden for his 4 month checkup a couple of days before Christmas. He weighed 17lbs and 9 ounces (90%) and he was almost 28 inches long (95%). In other words we have us one LARGE baby! (Have I mentioned that he is wearing 9 month clothes??) I began him on cereal a couple of days before his appointment and he seemed to have some tummy trouble so we decided to stop it and try it again in a couple of weeks. After all he is doing fine without it and he is getting the "good stuff" from me! HA! He checked out great, but the doctor did notice that he had eczema...... runs in mommy's family. We are doing lots of special lotion and limited baths during the winter. Braden has been a little fussier that normal the last few weeks and drooling constantly so I mentioned the possibility of teeth and the doctor said it was a little early for that. Well, 2 days after Christmas guess what popped through........ a new tooth!!!!!!! (So that might have added to his tummy trouble too!) We are so blessed to have such a sweet and healthy baby boy!
