Carrot Top

EC went to the doctor on Friday for his four month checkup. Everything looked great! Dr. Patton told us to keep doing whatever we were doing!

EC weighed in at 16 lbs 10 oz, but I swear that he should have weighed more than that. That put him in the 81st percentile for weight. His length had grown to 25.5 inches, which means that he was in the 71st percentile for height. His head measurement was in the 89th percentile and Birddog said that was because of his massive intelligent brain.

One of the exciting things that Dr. Patton told us was to start with some veggies! I know that I could have started this a little earlier, but I am glad that we waited. As soon as we got home, Birddog put together the high chair as fast as he could!

EC started out with carrots and he LOVED them! It took a little time to get used to it, but it was squeals and giggles after that. Be prepared for some more food shots in the coming days……..we have lots of new veggies and fruit to try!
