Shawn had his 4 month appointment this week. He did well! His weight is in the 95th percentile at 16 pounds 9 oz ( a pound less then we thought). This means he is slowing down, the first 2 months he gained a whopping 4.5 pounds, these last 2 months he only gained 2. He is rather short though. He is only 25 inches long, that puts him in the 40th percentile. He also has started cereal. The doctor recommended we start after 13 pounds. He loves it, and I can't shovel it fast enough (hence the 16 pounds!) His head is of course large as well. He is blowing raspberries and saying Da! His parlor tricks include rolling over both ways and trying to sit up on his own. The doctor says "He thinks he's 6 months old!" So, overall good job Shawn. Let's hope he gets taller before he gets wider!!!
