Today we had Cameron's 4 month well baby visit! The pediatrician had lots of helpful advice for me, including a product called "Soothe." He said that lots of mom's have good luck with it for babies with colic, so he thinks that might help if I decide to add dairy back into my diet. We talked about starting solids. I told him that I was planning to wait until 6 months. He said that if I wanted, I could even start at 5 months. I guess I haven't really thought much about it, but I guess we will see what happens. Five months is not very far away! He was excited that I am planning to make my own baby food. My tough little guy got shots again today, two in one leg and one in the other. I watched them happen this time, the needles were HUGE! I acted really calm because I don't want Cameron to be scared of the doctor, but yikes.
Cameron weighed in at 13 pounds 5 ounces and measured 26 inches! That puts him in the 17th percentile for weight and 83rd percentile for height. People keep telling me that he seems small for a 4 month old. Apparently he is small but long! No wonder it wasn't a crazy idea to dig into the 9 month jammies. They are still big, but nice and fuzzy and warm so we will use them anyway.
I was a little concerned that he might be an angry baby all day like he was last night, but he's been pretty good. Lots of naps and snuggling. I probably should've napped, too, but instead I tried to be really productive and get this blog rolling so I wouldn't have to stay up until midnight. Sometimes I'm amazed at how I can feel like I got a lot done, but look around and there is still so much to do. Gah. Oh well.
We ventured out into the cold for one last outdoor photoshoot. I am probably lying. I have a feeling we will be back out there. We had to do this one quick because I didn't dress myself as warm as I dressed my baby. Brrrrr!
