    Oh, yeah! He’s a screamer

    G had his 4mo well checkup today. I’m so proud of my little guy. He’s in the 10th percentile for height (on track with his curve). He’s also over 10th percentile for head circumference. Best of all, is that he’s rebounding weight-wise. He had fallen below the 3rd percentile during our weight fiasco (starting in the 10th) and today he’s at least in the 3rd percentile. I’m hoping we can get him back on his curve in the next few weeks!

    We will also start solids in another month. Rice cereal, food messes and splats across the room: here we come! I feel like he’s growing up so fast.

    Of course today’s appointment brings the next installment of vaccines. He got two today, one oral and the other a shot. A&B talked about the shrieks that Special K (their little one, and G’s betrothed) lets out during her shots, so we have a little video comparison going on. If you can’t stand the sound of a crying baby, don’t play the video below. On the other hand, if you’re looking for reinforcements for birth control and a reminder why you don’t want a(nother) baby right now, knock yourself out!

    I will note that G calmed down as soon as S picked him up, and then within 5 minutes we had this: a zonked out baby.

    My milk testing results also came in yesterday. My average caloric content is 22 cal/oz (formula contains only 20 cal/oz, so I’m above here) and my fat content is 42%, with average between 30% and 50%, anything over 40% being very good. This kinda confirms that G’s weight issues are about him, not me. I’m not sure how I feel about this.

    I leave you with this pic of G looking extra cute:

      I didn’t watch the video, reason number one my little man is sleeping next to me at the moment and reason number two is that just reading about vaccines made me cringe, a screaming baby might make me vow to not let Roo get them.

      I love the pictures of G in blue. You need to tell me how to do that or take some like that of my little man for me.

      Apparently my netbook is anti-streaming right now, because it won’t let me watch G scream! GRR!

      /me goes to poke at it

      OMG is that what having a baby is like?! 😯

      Tho I must admit that I oddly expected more screaming. S did a good job keeping G distracted!

      What a handsome little guy!
      I, too, expected more screaming though!
